    It's true, and pain meds often don't help. I think I recall a previous thread on this.

    Interesting article. I'm a redhead and have had a few precancerous skin moles removed.
    I've also read that we need more anesthetics for surgery or we'll wake up early. That has happened to me twice already. Not a nice experience to wake up while still intubated and in surgery.
    I'm also receiving lidocain infusions for my pain and am not getting as much pain relief from it as others. Now I know why.
