Be happy that you live now and not in 18hundred something ! If ever you would have to have a surgery, it would have been without anesthesia !
This was the hospital "Notre Dame à la Rose" which we visited
We were welcomed by a huge poster of this sympathetic looking surgeon and a nurse (nuns) carrying two babies
He rather looked like a butcher !
The instruments looked like household tools ! Saws, knives etc
it's a miracle that people survived !
Unfortunately photos with flash were not allowed so not all pictures of the horror instruments came out clear enough. But I think this gives already an idea !
If you were not "normal" they tried to open your head by sawing off the top and then put a screw inside to pull out the bad spirit ! The head was fixed with all these clips.
It was an interesting but rather creepy exposition !
