Anesthesia

Shortness of Breath Incr. 40 days post surger

09/19/2007

Question:

Post tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy and turbinectomy under general anesthesia 40+ days ago, am now working out and noticing increasing shortness of breath and pain below right breast area. Is this normal?

Answer:

I very much doubt that this has anything to do with your anesthesia or your surgical procedure and I suggest you see your primary medical practitioner.
