Surgery - July 28th 2018, 11:33 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So this could be graphic and triggering, so take caution.

When I was coming to from my surgery I could feel the breathing tube down my throat before they took it out. Is this a normal experience that some people have had? They told me that they would take it out as soon as I started coming to so I wouldn't remember, yet I remember. Should I report this to the hospital you think? Or should I just let it go?

I remember waking up while still having an operation done, and the tube was down my throat. To be honest with you, I never reported it. I think they took me off the anaethesia and I woke up before they completeted everything. They only had to close my jaw up (had binding braces) and that was really not surgical. In your situation, I would report it. As mine was all done and I just woke up for a split second, but you woke up and stayed awake while they continued the procedure.

I wasn't awake during the procedure itself, but I was awake while the tube was still in me, like they said I wouldn't be. They said I'd be waking up but wouldn't remember, but I do remember.

Have you discussed this with your doctor? I suppose you could report it, but for all you know it might be that there is a 1% chance that someone will come out from the anesthesia faster than is statistically common and will be conscious enough to remember the tube. There could be a number of factors that have nothing to do with medical malpractice or negligence or them lying to you or anything else of the sort. I think you should speak with your doctor first and see if they can provide an en explanation of what happened and why. That way they're not blindsided if you do decide to report it and are like "wtf, if this patient had just spoken to me I could have discussed it and found out why it happened vs. having it become a needless liability issue"
