I want to share this with you as I have had two surgeries in the past nine months; both times I brought my own Ipod and listened to my own music. The second time I did this, one week ago, I answered all the pre-surgery questions, then made it clear, three times, that I would be listening to my music from here on. If they really needed me for anything, to lightly touch me and I would assist with the need, but then close my eyes and return to my own world. I emphasized that I would like my ear buds in throughout the procedure, if they came out to put them back in my ears. I woke up and thought the song was on the same lyric! No discomfort at all.

Additionally, music is relaxing in general. I often put one ear bud in the ear not on the pillow and doze off to music. It relaxes me and my pain. Try it and see how it works for you.
