Memories of childhood surgery

The experience of surgery is memorable (if I can use that word) enough for adults – so what do you think it’s like for children?

“My partner only has one testicle (which is absolutely a non-issue to me), but he wasn’t born that way. He has a scar slightly below his left hip bone that is almost five inches long, running horizontally across his pelvic area. The only memories he has of this are vague, very early childhood memories (when 5-6) of being examined by a doctor and then being anesthetized on an operating table.

“I had a hernia operation when I was aged 5-6 and don’t remember a single thing about it except the general anaesthesia kicking in (unforgettable experience, that).
