Sawbones has always been Sawbones. Even when not actually chopping peoples' limbs off.

Makes you realize the notion is not exactly out of place ;D
Do they have something like anesthetics?

Unfortunately, nope. Alcohol's probably the best bet, which is why Sawbones tried to get Seb as drunk as possible when she was sewing his face up.

I think in this world, anaesthesia would be invented a little earlier than in ours, but it's still decades away at this point.

Good thing Danny didn't lose his leg.

Uh-oh...the nerd-who-must-know-everything has awoken in me.

So! I speculate, since I'm too lazy right now to look it up, that opium made landfall in the West during the Age of Enlightenment. A young, progressive physician probably noted that besides its recreational uses, opium was also good for pain.

Somewhere in a yet undiscovered region is this world's equivalent of the poppy.

"Yesss...poppies will make them sleep....sleep...sleep.."

sorry

I wanted to mention sleep magic which could be possible here but I guess that is rare to have a local magic practitioner.

Back to wet warm towel in the mouth, one guy holding, one guy sawing and see you tomorrow and perhaps in two weeks...

Which happened as late the U.S Civil War when the field hospitals ran out of opium and whiskey.

That's one of the powers mer like Stanza have actually! But good luck finding a mer these days, let alone bringing one to where you need them.

Undoubtedly! XD I was rather surprised by just how many important medical discoveries were originally for other purposes.
