Do I need to be "put to sleep" for the surgery?

You may have a general anesthetic, which most people call "being put to sleep". Some surgeons prefer that their patients have a spinal or epidural anesthetic, which numbs your legs only and does not require you to sleep. The choice is between you, your surgeon, and the anesthesiologist.
