KATOWICE, Poland — A 19-year-old woman recently woke up during brain surgery in Poland and asked her doctors how the procedure was going.

According to The Daily Mirror, Iga Jasica was having a cancerous growth removed from her brain at a hospital in Katowice and woke up about halfway through the operation.

“Despite coming round, she didn’t feel anything and was never in danger,” neurosurgeon Dawid Larsz told The Daily Mirror.

Jasica said she is now “feeling great.”

“I can’t remember much but the doctor said he talked to me about cats, which I love,” she said.

Hospital officials are investigating how the anesthetic was administered to her, but according to the Daily Mirror the brain operation could have also caused her to wake up despite the anesthetic.
