Drugged up!

Don't know what was ih the dope that they shot me up with in the hospital, but it wiped out my memory to the extent that I rang a friend in the evening to tell her all about how I got on, and she went a bit quiet, then said, "We've already had this conversation. Don't you remember?"

I felt embarrassed, confused, as if I'd just developed Alzheimer's. Apparently she had rung me an hour after I got back from the hospital and I could remember nothing about it at all. Still can't! My brain was totally addled. Anyone else had this experience? I fell bruised, battered and wobbly today, and still a bit fuzzy in the head. No wonder they tell you not to drive for 24 hours!

I didn't lose my memory but they almost totally knocked me out during the procedure so I don't remember much of it at all. But, after I woke up in recovery.. my memory was fine and cognizant after that.

You probably had a hefty dose of sedative, Hydra. The same thing happened to my Mum when she had her first colonoscopy. After that, both she and I opted for light sedation.
