Hello joao;

welcome to HealthcareMagic

Normally all anaesthesia you can see are just a prick of needle so if you do not fear the prick of needle you need not worry.Only anaesthesia where the position is different is the spinal anaesthesia where you get prick of needle at the back.Once the needle is pricked and the medicine goes in your body you will not realize any pain and before you realize you will be asleep so relax before surgery and you should be fine.

I find this answer helpful

it depends on how major your surgery is. if you are having a really big surgery they will give you something before you go to the operating room to relax you and take away anxiety (that helps tremendously) if your surgery is minor the scariest part is being wheeled into the room and moved to the operating table.. when you lay down its almost instantaneous the nurse will start talking to you about something and before you finish answering youll be alseep. you won't wake up until its finished and you'll be like wow that was quick. it feels like you sleep and a minute later you wake up. goodluck on your surgery
