No. However, a mild sedative can be provided in some circumstances to help you feel calm during the procedure. This medicine may make you feel sleepy and/or cause you to forgot some details of the day. If taking this medication, you will absolutely require a driver on the day of surgery. Every person reacts differently to sedation. You may have lapses of memory, slowed reactions, and/or impaired judgment the day of and the day after surgery. If you receive sedation, for the first 24 hours after surgery: you should not drive or operate heavy machinery, make important decisions or sign legal documents, assume responsibility for anyone dependent on your care, drink alcohol, or participate in sporting activities. A responsible adult should stay with you for the remainder of the day.
