Anesthesia

Anesthesia used more than 5 times dangerous?

05/20/2008

Question:

Hello, I was wondering if it is dangerous to have several surgeries under anesthesia? I have had over 16 of them and I have to have more. I am a little worried that it is bad for you and has more risk each time you have it. Thanks.
