When TTS surgery is done do they put you to sleep or just a local or what?

I was put 'under' on August 17 for my tts surgery. The doc said I had to be put toally under because he had to use a tourniquet (sp?) I guess I didn't know exactly what he meant by that. I had a reaction 2 days after...extreme headache..nauseua.

i was 'put under' also for my surgery on august 29. I had the choice to go under or have a spinal block done, but because i hate needles, there was no way i was going to let them put a BIG one in my back. i was just happy with the IV and going to sleep.
I only had a small reaction directly after waking up in recovery, but i was alright after that. it's different for everyone.
