I have had many surgeries and I always bring my laptop to do work in the hospital. I usually have to stay for weeks at a time, so I have a lot of experience with exactly this situation.

Coincidentally, I did the terrain libraries for both of my past 2 engines while high on morphine in a hospital bed.
The code was not horrible, but I made a few idiotic mistakes. Luckily, idiotic mistakes are the easiest to spot and fix.

But your results may vary. Since I have had so many surgeries I have a high tolerance for drugs. So high in fact that I awakened during my last surgery, lifted my head, looked at the doctor, and told him I was awake. He didn’t stop cutting or say anything. About a minute later the nurse finally injected more anesthesia.
This probably won’t happen to you, by the way, unless you have had many surgeries already.


So while I can say it certainly is possible, it depends on your tolerance towards drugs. I wasn’t very productive the first few times, but I also wasn’t trying to be. I think I could have done more if I had wanted.
