I had Fentanyl (sp?) as general anesthesia for both my colon resection and my liver resection. Was a bad experience with colon resection, but not as bad the second time.

LEF's discussion on surgery and anesthesia bears reading.

Of course, for many, whether they can get cimetidine for the operation, instead of the usual proton pump inhibitors, and for 7-30 days around surgery will be a major contributor to their long term survival. Perhaps best measured in years for many.
