Anxiety and Stress Disorders
I had an abdominal hysterectomy and didn`t wake for 3days during which I had numerous pseudoseizures for 2 days I have not had them since and this was the first time it had happened I have no memory of this happening. I`m to have heart valve replacement surgery soon and am worried that this may happen again. I`ve had difficulty waking sedation and general anesthia before but not the seizures.Is this likely to occur again? Why did it happen before? The only info I`ve found on this has said that it continues,mine hasn`t.
I'm sorry, but this is not the appropriate format to answer your question. It does not relate to our topic (stress and anxiety) and is highly specific to your personal situation. I encourage you to discuss this with your personal physicians.
