Anasthesia on Thursday.......today is Tuesday & I`m still having difficulty breathing...........I`m in excellent shape (5 miler) but cannot go from bed to bathroom without breathing difficulty. Are these effects normal?
Definitely not normal.
Although you say you had anesthesia, you don't say what the surgery was, whether it was successful, how old you are, whether you take any medication, whether you have any symptoms apart from breathing difficulty, etc, etc. In other words, not enough information. Your best course is to contact your doctor as a matter of urgency to be properly assessed.
