I had a c section after hours of labor, neccesity is debateable, I had many top offs of my epideral ontop of the Bolus, with very limited relief. in the OR I felt all the preperation, but my words were ignored. I asked the anesthesiologist what he was giving me he told me "You dont need to know" I told him, " then stop and get someone else" he then told me the same as before, Just a higher dose, lidocaine". anesthesiologist nowhere within my sight after this breif conversation. I told OB over the drape that I could feel him cutting, his assistant, without looking at me told him that I was feeling pressure. I demanded my husband come inbefore proceding so that there is a witness to my pain. The Ob finally looks over and tells the Anesthesiologist that "I really feel it" he gave versaccording to the medical records which I finally obtained after 6 months of fighting, I was given Versed, and my BP was eleveated more than 30 over my baseline BP. during the procedure so the if there was pproper observation he should have noticed. the anesthesiologist should also been at my head to observe. I did not see my infant for more than 4 hours after even though I requested to see him multiple times in recovery, I believe he gave me the versed in a last ditch attempt, assuming the retrograde amneastic property would fog my memory.. which it hasnt As a results I have poor bonding with my child, have niightmares, flashbacks, panic attacks etc. at
