How long after the IV is removed, will it take for me to be NOT dopey (so long as no post operation medications such as Benzos have been administered)? Like...is it within a few minutes? Or will I be a YouTube-video-Esc embarrassment fest for hours? I just like to be in control and i DO know it impacts everyone differently...so I’m just looking for some ballparks or some of your stories? How long did it take for any of you to regain a semi—alert state (at least enough to not be acting a fool)? Thanks for any replies!
