I had to have a procedure done last Friday that I was put to sleep for. I didn't do anything strange while under or coming out of the anesthesia sleep. At least, not according to my husband. I talked to the Doctor and was coherent with my questions and even remembered that I needed to take my morning meds when the nurses brought me Sprite to drink. However, I came away from all this absolutely convinced that the Dr. told me that I didn't have to keep my follow-up appointment with him if I didn't feel I needed it. I would put money on that the Dr. told me something to the effect of 'I scheduled you a follow up appointment in a month, but you don't have to come in if you want to.' I thought okay strange, but hey, whatever. This probably isn't a very big deal in the scope of things for him, no matter how huge of a deal it is to me. It was a very minor procedure.
Later on, a few days afterwards when my head cleared I asked DH if I had heard this correctly. He said he didn't hear that and when I insisted that Dr. had told me it wasn't necessary unless I felt it was, DH asked, "If he didn't think you needed to come in, why would he have took the time to call his office and schedule the appointment for you? Wouldn't it have been easier to just tell you to make an appointment in a month if you felt like you needed it?" This Dr. isn't usually overbooked. Anytime you call for an appointment they can usually work you in within a week.
When faced with that logic, I saw the flaw in my memory.
