Anesthesia is a drug that doctors give to patients to alleviate or prevent pain during surgery. Some people refer to it as a substance that makes them feel “numb” in a given part of the body. Other times, anesthesia may also cause unconsciousness or a loss of awareness.
Some of these are: what type of surgical procedure would happen, the patient’s pain threshold and health condition alongside the height, weight, and age, and other risk factors that may come into play. Make sure to discuss all these things with your doctor, along with any apprehensions you may have, before any surgery or any other medical procedure that would require anesthetic help.
