  • I'm glad you got something out of this, Elaine. Don't take me as the final expert, but please check my sources and any you may come across, especially if they are primary accounts from the years your are writing about.

There seems to be first hand accounts of a glass of wine being given to the patient before some surgery and a glass of something after for 'rejuvenation'. The myth I encounter is getting your patient stinking drunk and I have not found evidence that supports that.

Updated: Aug 1, 2008 Workshop Description: Separating fact from fiction, this presentation will provide some basic understanding of pre-anesthesia wound treatment 1500 – 1800 and recommendations for researching your own questions in the history of medicine. Not for the faint of stomach, topics will include myth busting about amputation and methods of treating cuts, stabs, arrow and gunshot removal, fractures and dislocations, and head trauma. “The course of illness was not often dramatically altered or shortened or terminated… surgery entailed weeks of daily wound care rather than dramatic interventions that characterize modern operative surgery”. - Mary E. Fissel, Bulletin of the History of Medicine, Spring 2008 V82no1, page 14. “Why, just fifty years ago, they tho
