Shonie Carter photographs his own leg surgery


Who else but Shonie Carter would ask a surgeon if he could stay awake during an operation so he could record it?

When doctors informed Shonie “Mr. International” Carter that he would need a subcutaneous neural polyp removed, he asked what any normal fighter would.

"Can I video tape it?"

The video request was denied, but Carter, who stayed awake throughout the procedure, was allowed to photograph the proceedings.

If you had a problem with the stomach scene in Aliens, this one might not be for you.

Given the current state of fighter insurance policies, I'd say......probably.

theres really no good reason why you shouldnt be able to watch if you have a good enough block, or spinal/epidural anesthesia, but generally they dont let you just cause its better if you dont. i know if you choose to have a knee scope surgery, you can get a spinal, and they can have you watch a monitor of the surgery through the scope. ive only seen one patient choose that. after a little bit, it could actually get a little boring.

My mom was having surgery on her feet, bones shaved, and she woke up in the middle of it. She asked them if she could watch (she used to be an EMT). They wouldn't let her.
