Glad to hear your op' was a success. Neurosurgery is complex and most procedures
take 3hrs or more, particularly a 'shunt'. I think after they inserted the 1st I.V. they
'primed' you with a mild (passive) anesthesia which causes confusion and to a degree
a drunk/stoned like effect.
Also, during a procedure of such length, you have to be hydrated and other issues
that require an I.V. like a 'masking anti-biotic'.
Unfortunately sometime Medics can't "find a vein" at the first go, so you may have
seen this as having more drips than you did.
Nothing to worry about, SirK...anesthesia euphoria, that my guess. Hope it helps.
