Today my son broke his pinky finger at school. I had to help shield his eyes from needles and from watching the doctor reset the bone. Do you watch medical procedures (shots, stitches etc) or do you look away?
I love to watch.
Ohh jeez no. Can't look at the stuff, can't even look at blood
I wish I could've watched an operation on my ankle, but I was put under. Video might have been cool.
It'd be a little weird to watch the surgery I had on my left eye.
I'm mostly curious. There are times I don't want to watch though.
Heck, I wanted to watch the removal of a tumor from my leg. That's the main reason I asked for a spinal rather than general anesthetic. But the put a drape up so I couldn't really see.
I do look if it they draw blood, because then I pass out and I get free apple juice and some sleep
If you shield my eyes, I wig out... Should have seen me getting an injection into my shoulder joint - had to turn my head to get the right angle... Apparently, the radiologist had never seen anyone freak out that bad, while keeping shoulder still b4.
The worst I ever saw, was a knee replacement. I have seen open heart surgery, but the knee replacement made me sick.
Think about deboning a chicken.
On TV, I'm intrigued… in real life, I get queasy.
I'm totally fine with watching other people, but when it comes to myself absolutely not.
Thanks! He's doing ok. He's such a trooper. He told me tonight that he's glad his finger will be normal instead of twisted and tweaked and that the dr was worth it. (He said differently at the hospital).
I cannot look at anything involving blood and guts. I get light headed and feel faint.
I can't do it.
I watch too. No problem watvhing on myself. But my husband, who works in the medical field, can't watch if its on a loved one. Watching them reset his finger did leave me a bit uneasy for a second tho.
I watched a hysterectomy procedure on YouTube after I had mine done. Pretty fascinating. But I was all for the general anesthesia!!
