A girl in Poland woke up during brain surgery and asked her doctors how the operation was going, Fox17 reported.
Iga Jasica, 19, was undergoing surgery at the Central Clinical Hospital in the city of Katowice.
Doctors say she woke up halfway through the procedure when the anesthetic wore off. Her brain was exposed, but surgeons say the girl’s health was not in jeopardy.
“Despite coming round, she didn’t feel anything and was never in danger,” neurosurgeon Dawid Larysz said.
According to The Daily Mirror, the neurosurgeon said that Jasica wouldn’t have been able to see or feel anything. Jasica doesn’t remember waking up during the surgery.
“I can’t remember much, but the doctor said he talked to me about cats, which I love. I missed Christmas because of this operation, but it is the best present I could have had as I am now feeling great.” Jasica said.
It’s possible the surgery may have triggered something that woke her up, experts said — but doctors are also looking into whether the anesthesia was administered correctly.
It’s good to see that even though she was fighting a deadly battle that during the process she still had time to stop and think about cats, Christmas, and other things that make her happy.
