Will I feel anything when I am under general anaesthetic?

No. Modern anaesthetic drugs have made the induction of anaesthesia a simple, stress-free and safe experience. Your anaesthetist will inject an intravenous induction agent into the drip and you will drift off to sleep within 30 seconds. Thereafter you will know and feel nothing until the operation is completed.
