In the recovery room and in no pain, obviously. The Washington Hospital Center used a new type of anesthesia on me--one that's available in only a few hospitals nationwide--that targeted the area of surgery and lessened the overall dose to the rest of the body. They are finding this particular anesthesia plays a role in reducing the recurrence of cancer. Wow. Also, it is easier to come out of. One day down the road it will be standard in all hospitals. A friend who is an anesthesiologist in San Francisco, who phoned last night to check on me, said his hospital does not have it yet but he's hoping soon.
