So I had surgery yesterday. I had to get my appendix taken out. It was one of the most of the painful experiences of my life. My appendix almost burst. The doctor told me I had a high threshold for pain. Before I get into the music, let’s talk about my appendix quickly.

I was relaxing in my apartment listening to some electronic dance music. I was bumping some Calvin Harris and then felt a sharp pain in my stomach. I ignored it at first because I thought I was something I ate. Over the course of the day, the pain slowly got worse. I took some Advil for the pain and that got me through the night.

I woke up the next morning to some of the worst pain I have felt in my entire life.I could not even get out of bed. The pain was intolerable. I knew I needed to see the doctor. I called my doctor and he told me to check into the emergency room. That is exactly what I did. I was given immediate care and pain killers to numb the pain.

The doctor told me I had appendicitis and needed my appendix removed immediately. I was not happy to hear that. I have never had a major surgery; nor did I know what my appendix did for my body. I read more about my appendix on Nurse Frontier to get some  more information. After gaining some information for the internet, I felt much better. Then the medical staff prepared me for surgery.

Anyway, that is how I got to the hospital. Now on to re surgery music. You basically need to make a playlist that will calm you down. You want to be in as chill a mood as possible so when they administer the anesthesia, they goes correctly and you fall asleep gracefully. So I made an electronic and 90s R&B music playlist that is pretty relaxing. It is important to look for artists that consistently make chill music.

I made a playlist with Odesa, Calvin Harris, TLC, SWV, Aaliyah, En Vogue, and a couple more artists. If you structure the playlist my looking for artists instead of songs then it becomes a lot less time consuming and is still really effective. Anyway, the surgery was a success and I am feeling a lot better now.
