Anesthesia

Long-term side effects of general anesthetic

03/18/2008

Question:

I had a Laparoscopy for endometriosis about three weeks ago under general anesthetic. Since the operation I have been left with numb on the top side of my knees as well as battling with short-term memory loss. It has been 2 weeks. Can these symptoms be from the operation and will they go away in time? If not, what can I do about them??
