Comments on general anesthesia
My first experience with general anesthesia was pretty much anti-climatic. A quick dose of versed (midazoam), then you get wheeled into the surgery. The anesthesiologists tells you will shortly be asleep and begins injecting the propoful or "milk of amnesia". It burns a bit going up your arm but within 15-20 seconds I felt a heaviness in my chest. Next thing I remember was waking up in the recovery room like nothing ever happened. Not a bad experience.
