Anesthesia

Side Affects of Anesthesia

05/21/2008

Question:

My mother is 62 and has had several surgeries including a hysterectomy just 2 years ago. She just recently had a hernia operation and she is having difficulty in recovering from the hernia operation. With other surgeries in the past that were more complicated she had minimal side affects. What is a reasonable amount of time to recover from anesthesia and what may be some of the side affects? When would you begin to be concerned about these side affects lingering?
