: : Hello dear friends'
: : I don't understand the meaning of kicking here:
: : "WE WANT TO HEAD YOU OFF BEFORE THE KICKING STARTS"
: : It's in the middle of an operation and the doctor asks the patient to tell him when he feels pain.
: : I understand that head off is to prevent, but kicking, is it literally or does he mean "the fun", that is the pain?
: : Thanks a lot
: The doctor wants to give him anesthesia before the patient starts kicking and screaming in pain.
thank you Bruce, as simple as that.
