Who doesn't love a good...

"I was awake during surgery" story?

As the cancer patient lay on the operating room table, she felt the surgeon remove her intestines and splay them over her abdomen.

Terrified, she was awake but unable to provide a signal — a wiggle of a toe, the bat of an eyelash — to communicate the excruciating pain she was suffering.
Ok, ok... that wasn't fair... let me administer the antidote.
