The doctor did the surgery in his office, I was laying back in a chair and he held my eye open with a poker. His face was close to mine, it seemed like the laster was ih his hand but maybe it was on his head. I think he did have something around his head. I was not sitting in front of a machine.
I get panic attacks and take .375 mg of venaflaxine (effexor generic not sure if I am spelling correctly) daily and then just vitamins. I have mitral valve prolapse although no longer need to take the pennicillin for dental work since they changed the parameters several years ago.
