The 60 Most HILARIOUS Things Patients Have Said While Under Anesthesia

These hilarious stories from Ask Reddit are going to have you chuckling at your phone.

43. Last year they were knocking me out for a colonoscopy. It was the third time I had been put under in a year.

As such I had a curiosity: I had heard that when they knock you out you are still awake for awhile, you just don’t remember.

So in the spirit of science I proposed a test with the anesthesiologist: when she started the medicine I would begin counting backward. When I would wake up we would compare what I remembered to what she observed.

Plunger down – 99, 98, 97 – I remembered nothing more.

Minutes later I awoke. The anesthesiologist espied me and came over quickly.

“What did you remember?” she asked.


She began laughing.

“You got down to 7!”
