Pat Sajak discusses his emergency surgery. The pain was so strong he thought he would die

“I was lying on the bed in the fetal position,” he explained. “They try to treat your pain with numerous medications. And none of it – none of it – worked.”

Then, he said, his doctors gave him a drug that swept the pain from his mind.

“All of a sudden, I wasn’t thinking about the discomfort,” he explained. “I just got these amazing pastels and faced flowing out of it.”

“I could hear my wife and daughter talking in the background.” “They sounded a mile away but were right next to me,” he explained. “They were conversing with one another. And I recall thinking, not morbidly, “I guess this must be death.”
