    Here's a question for anyone in the medical field. We all know about morning wood, but can the same thing happen while we are under anesthesia in the OR? I had surgery for an inguinal hernia several years ago. Afterwards, a nurse that had been in the OR made a vague statement about size that made me wonder what she saw. I do appear larger than most when I am soft but I don't know that you get a real idea of the size until it is hard. Especially with OR's being kept so cool, there was probably some shrinkage. Her statement seemed more related to my hard size.

    I get wood when I go to the dentist, and he uses laughing gas, so I'm sure the same thing can happen if you are put out. nice pics...by the way:cool:

    I don't know about that, but I had surgery and it took a few days for me to get back any type of ability in that area after until the anesthesia wore off. I even worried it might not function. Fortunately, about two weeks later, everything was back too normal. Anybody else have similar experience with anesthesia in that sense? Lack of ability or desire following surgery?

    I am currently doing my clinicals for Surgical Technology. I haven't personally seen this occur but then again, I have yet to see everything that occurs in the OR. Maybe she was commenting on your flaccid penis size since they usually wait until the patient is completely anesthetized before shaving and cleaning the surgical sight. So I'm sure if you were having an operation on an Inguinal hernia, then your penis was visible during this prepping. Also, since these hernias are closely related to the groin area of the body, it could be possible that some nerve was stimulated during surgery causing a spontaneous erection. Just a theory since I am basically new and inexperienced to this profession. Thought I could give the situation a little insight (no pun intended).

    Back in 1997, hubby had 5 hour right wrist surgery to put it back together after a motorcycle accident....
    He also had green stick fractures in 4 ribs on his left side.
    His ribs were so bad he couldn't sleep flat......slept for 3 weeks in the lazyboy recliner......I only had to push from behind to straighten it back up.
    Also during this time, and while he still had hardware sticking out of his right wrist.......we decided on a quickie before a friend came to visit for a few days.
    I was leaned over his desk and he was standing behind me.

    Everything worked right but I remember we were both wondering what would happen when he tensed up.....with the broken ribs.
    So right afterwards we were laughing cause it felt really good to him, but at the same time, the ribs reminded him they were still on the mend.

    He hated the anesthesia with the 5 hour surgery cause he couldn't remember the 2 days after that.
    Insisted when it was time to remove the outer hardware, that his arm be blocked.......told his Dr. he was absolutely NOT putting him under for that.
    So they blocked his arm.
    We kept the hardware they took out.

    (I'm morbid like that....:smile: )

    Hey there. I've been a registered nurse for a long time now. I am currently working on my masters degree in nursing, as a nurse anesthetist (CRNA). I do the exact same thing as an anesthesiologist. [I put you asleep for surgery, and keep you without pain.] Any questions see AANA - Home

    Anyhow, to answer your question. In the OR, you come in nude, wearing only a hospital gown and a few sheets over you. We keep it cold in the OR to protect you against germs [they don't grow well when its cold]. As your laying there, your anesthesia person (MD or CRNA) gives you something in your IV or in your oxygen mask...then, your out like a light. At this point they place a breathing tube in your throat, and keep you asleep and comfortable. Your gown is removed, the surgical drapes are layed over you to reveal only the necessary areas for the surgery, and depending on the surgery and the anesthesia person, you may then recieve a urinary catheter.

    Anyone in the OR may see you nude at this point. The most important part is that many of the anesthetics [drugs] you get while you are under anesthesia will relax your muscles in your body. You will not get an erection but your dick will be very plump and full, just like you were in a hot tub or after a very warm shower. Its due to the parasympathetic effects of some drugs. SO, even though you weren't erect, you were just as big as you could be without being erect.

    We nurses and doctors have seen SO MANY people naked that I couldn't even count. Myself, I have slept with less than 50 men in my life, I have been a nurse for 9 years, I've probably seen hundreds of thousands of dicks. This is not counting ALL of the porn I've seen. So, at work, to see some dick....it's no big deal for any of us.

    OK, buddy629's reply was quite a comfort to me to read. On 6th January I had spinal surgery (check my gallery) and I knew when I went to the OR I was only wearing a gown that was over my front, I don't believe it was done up at the back.

    One of the main reasons that I had the surgery was because the slipped disc I was suffering at L3 - L4 was pressing on the nerves to do with urinary continence. I was warned before I went to the OR that I may come back with a catheter. I was concerned about the catheter because I'd heard elsewhere that in order to fit a catheter, the penis has to be semi-erect.

    When they told me they were giving me the drug to make me unconscious via the IV line in my arm, I said "OK" and felt my arm go cold, they said "Can you feel that going cold?" I said "yeaaaaaaaaaahhhhh" and that was it!

    Anyway, during the course of the operation, I'm assuming it's because they were removing the disc/protrusion that was pressing on the nerves that deal with continence I apparently urinated three times whilst face down on the operating table. However, when I came back to the ward (nearly six hours later) I was clean and dry and certainly didn't stink of piss. So I'm guessing the poor guys down there a) cleaned me up thoroughly and b) had to lift my dead weight body about in order to slip a clean gown onto me.

    I came back to the ward without a catheter fitted due to the fact I had urinated three times during the operation and they told me that they'd be monitoring my urine output over the next day. I was thirsty as hell and drank and urinated (into bottles) far more than I think they were expecting so I escaped having a catheter fitted.

    Being on a neurosurgery ward and when I was on my feet and hobbling around, I discovered there was an entire store cupboard dedicated to catheters!

    Sorry, I also meant to reply to this matter. I did actually raise this with one of my specialists. Knowing that I'd had the disc protrusion pressing on certain nerves in my spine relating to urinary continence, I realised after my operation that in the entire 9 days I had been in hospital (Including 4 days post operative) I hadn't popped a boner. It was slightly embarrassing to bring up the matter considering the specialist I was speaking to was a woman but she said she'd mention it to my surgical team.

    Next day, my surgeon visited me, although I had an individual room, he didn't bother shutting the door before saying (loudly) "I understand Mr J that you're concerned that you've not had an erection since you've been in hospital?" No sir, I haven't. "You not even had morning stiffness in your penis?" No sir. "I shouldn't worry about it, get in touch if it persists when you get home."

    I have to say that as soon as I was able to get in front of my PC and have a butchers around xtube.com at stuff that I like, I confirmed I was absolutely fine in that department :biggrin1: I think it was down to the fact that I woke several times during the nights to urinate so that probably cured morning wood and that hospital wasn't the sexiest of places (all my nurses were female) it just never felt appropriate. I was tempted to have a little play but frankly you never knew when a nurse was gonna open the door so.... :rolleyes:

    Back when I worked on general surgical floors, on occasion, I have walked in on my patients having a little 'self-love' session. I just shut the door and come back in 20min or so. If I have them the second day, I'd leave a clean washcloth or towel on the nightstand in easy reach for them, incognito, not saying a word about it. Sometimes you just gotta clean the pipes, dosen't matter where you may be. Dosen't bother me any.

    Either that or I offer to suck their dick before bedtime or jerk them off during a warm sudsy sponge bath [Seriously NO, I'm just kidding:biggrin1: ]

    This thread reminds me of a when I observed a heart bypass operation in a Chicago hospital some years ago. (I work for a medical equipment manufacturer, and occasionaly observe in the operating room.)

    Because of the length of the operation, the patient was to be fitted with a foley catheter, inserted into the penis to collect the urine. The patient was wheeled in, strongly sedated but not yet under actual anesthesia. A male nurse pulled back the patient's drapes, and grasped the penis to prepare it for the catheter. As he did so, an odd expression crossed his face, then he shruged and proceeded to clean the penis and insert the catheter. The patient was quite well endowed, and I thought this might have had something to do with the nurse's reaction.

    Just as he is finishing the procedure, a female nurse walks up.

    "Hey, Mary," the male nurse said, "This one's got an implant. Want me to pump it up for you, and you can give us your opinion?"

    "No, don't bother. I never really did like any that I've seen."

    Just as this is going on, the surgeon stuck his head in the door, to see how the pre-op prep is going. "Ah!" he said, "The old stick-in-the-dick trick, eh?"

    After that, the entire surgical team spent the next 10 minutes making juvenile penis jokes. Bear in mind that the patient was only sedated, and not yet under actual anesthesia, so one has to wonder what he may or may not have heard.

    And seriously here... the temptation was mild. Maybe if I'd had a nice young male nurse... *sigh*

    Depending on the type of surgery and the type of anesthesia they use, the odds of getting an erection during surgery are slim. The drug most often used to put a person "to sleep" is called diprovan. It looks like milk. They also use some versed because it gives you amnesia. They used to use sodium pentothal but alot of people got nauseated and puked after surgery. (Imagine that after abdominal surgery). Diprovan burns a little bit when it is injected, but it puts you out real fast. Then they give you a drug like pavulon or norcuron. This drug causes complete paralasis and you are unable to move, blink or breathe. If you get this drug, you will die unless you are mechanically ventilated because you are unable to breathe due to it paralysing your diaphram. At this point you are asleep and unable to move, but could still register pain impulses. They also give you drugs like sublimaze and morphine to kill the pain receptors. Halothane is an inhailed drug that is used sometimes as well.
    Almost all of these drugs have an effect on the nervous system even after surgery. Alot of people are not even able to piss after surgery because of this effect. So they put a catheter in their bladder until the drugs wear off.
    Since alot of the nerve impulses that control your bladder also effect the penis, the odds of you getting erect are slim.
    What happens though sometimes with incomplete spinal cord injuries is that the brain floods the spinal cord with signals and guys get erections for no reason. Hope this info helps.

    In all the OR time I have done I have never seen someone get an erection from anesthsia. Only from spinal cord injuries.. Not that I was looking for it either.

    Thanks for that info, Buddy629. Feel free to correct any errors I make here:

    Depending upon the nature of the surgery, the anesthesia is usually a cocktail of several different types of drugs. Anesthetic (causes numbness), hypnotic (induces sleep), amnetic (so you won't remember anything about the surgery), paralytic (sometimes used if it is imperative that you remain perfectly still during the surgery) are all common, and used two or more at a time, in various ratios, depending on need. And yes, given the nature of these drugs, an erection while you are "under" isn't very likely.

    Thanks for all the information. I have had two surgeries, one for the hernia and one for the knee. I knew that I was naked during both but I just wasn't sure how much of a show the doctors and nurses got to see. Just a curiousity I have had. I also understand that people in the medical profession see cocks all the time and aren't there for cheap thrills. I also know that they are human and will make remarks like someone else mentioned above about the implant.
