My SO had a gastroscopy and colonoscopy, under full anaesthesia. Since he’s not supposed to be alone for the first hours after that, I went to pick him up. He messaged me from his phone – complete nonsense, as he was just waking up.

I asked the nurse if I can go into the wake-up room, or bring him a piece of paper to write down what the doctor tells him (about which medicine to take in the next days, and when to ask for a revisit). I was not allowed.

Half an hour later, he stumbles out of the room, still visibly under the influence of anaesthesia. And the front desk nurse gets mad at him for not remembering a single thing the doctor told him while he was half awake.
