Best of luck and good health to all. I have a serious question. Is it normal for general anesthesia to cause a sort of nonexistent state where you're there and you know but you can't do a single thing. I had my wisdom teeth removed and when I woke up I was out of it. I was so out of it that I knew I was awake I heard there was around me and was in the state of being where I just couldn't actually function. I couldn't talk the matter how much I wanted to I couldn't form stable sentences in my mind and I couldn't move I needed assistance even going to the car after the operation. It was scary to my family and I was in that catatonic state for about a good maybe four or five maybe six hours afterwards.

I was just curious if that was normal? It was an outpatient endoscopy. I had no problems anywhere throughout my entire body prior to this endoscopy. As soon as the anesthesia wore off, I immediately experienced an extreme pounding pain in my tongue. I have a constant metallic taste in my mouth that will not allow me to taste food. The top right side of my tongue is numb, but I have full movement under my tongue. Due to the numbness on top of my tongue, the numbness in my tongue goes all the way down my throat. Of course we all know we only have one throat, however, it feels like I have 2 separate tubes going down my throat.

Swallowing is very difficult due to the constant fear of choking to death on anything I eat or drink. This surgery took place October and all of the symptoms are still here to this day. This pain is excruciating. I swear it feels like my tongue is going to pound out of my mouth. I wonder if I bite my tongue off if that will stop the pain or intensify it. When I bite down on the nerve, it cuts off the excruciating pain, however, clamping down on my tongue with my teeth is leaving gashes in my tongue. Does anyone have any advice? I can't get in touch with an anesthesiologist in my area, it's extremely rural where I live and no one seems to want to contradict the only hospital in my area.

I would really appreciate any help I can get to fix this torture chamber that's been left in my mouth by the doctor or his staff. So nice meeting you Tahoe Doc. I look forward to following you and reading all of your extraordinary hubs. I have had 20 surgeries in 33 years of my 42 on this earth, and a quarter of those were in my first 6 months of life. My major concerns are what are the long term side effects?

But there are some good effects though. The funny little hallucinations, the euphoria of the narcotics, the general well being and happiness. I think I only ever got 2 or 3 doses of vomiting and those were mainly from spinal surgery. Some people might enjoy the side effects and not find them annoying. The narcotics can produce euphoria especially when IV'd. Sometimes I remember anesthesiologists getting upset with me because I was not going under quickly enough and sometimes I don't remember when the mask was placed over my face.

The anesthesiologists, however, tell me each time in recovery that it took me a long time to go under. Wow - this is a heckuva hub. I've never been under as far as I can remember so now I know what to expect should I ever need surgery. Well, where to begin about my first surgery of my 40 years. I had a hyperactive gall bladder removed. Upon waking up from surgery the worst 2 weeks of my life began.

It starts of pretty humours then after 2 weeks my loved ones are filling me in on a few days of blacking out. Absolutely no memory. I woke up from surgery and asked my nurse if I was naked, then tugging on my IV line asking why I have a catheter and then asked this poor nurse if she took my pants off and if she like what she saw. My mother filled me in on this by the video she took. I'm a joker but not that blunt ever!

Im quite happy, kind and caring, whitty and creative. But most of all loving, respectful and usually on the antsy side with my conditions when I take my anxiety and adhd meds. But off them for several days to recover. The day after my surgery I found a lump on my testicle and didnt talk about it with anyone and going to deal with it after the holiday. Now things really begin. So about a week goes by and I am heeling great and feeling wonderful, physically! Mentally, I turned into a negative ass that obsessed and dwelled on pointless issues. No appetite at all losing 17 lbs in 2 weeks.

Just after a week this is where I begin to go blank, having no memory and dwelling on my coin purse and the lump I found earlier. So I'm functioning talking to my girlfriend telling her she deserves better than me, I'm no good, I'm a piece of shit not only shit but I'm at the bottom of that pile. Luckily she knows about anesthesia and its effects but not like this. She knew I was no at home in my head! I started a little spat with her which I escalated the to me thinking she dumped me, I'm losing my best friend, love and support and I'm going to die alone.

All this in min she informed me when I came around 4 days later. I nearly checked into a place for a Psych evaluation. It's very disturbing having no knowledge of 4 days and functioning in my home but not in public that I know about yet. Plus receiving confirmation I updated beneficiaries with no knowledge. I feel all of this was triggered by the general anesthesia. Followed up by my existing mental health issues, surgery killing my appetite, lack of sleep and obsessively stressing about the lump which turned out being a cyst that formed after my vasectomy.

I saw my shrink and she felt I might be allergic to the anesthesia first off. Then, with all the stress I held in along with all contributing factors part of my brain shutdown and basically in simple terms I was sleep walking for 4 days. I'm due for another surgery way more severe than my gall bladder but terrified now. Its at least a hour surgery to fuse 2 levels in my neck, bone spurs, stenosis repair, spondylosis repair.

Should I order a straight jacket and leash now for my family Seriously tho! I need insight please Thank you for any help! TahoeDoc, I believe I'm allergic to anasthesia, and I"m also allergic to sulfa drugs , when I had surgery from a root canal to my open heart surgery, 3 years ago. I do throw up from it.

This is a great hub. Real useful and informative too. I had angioplasty 3 days ago, after surgery they placed me on a CPAP machine for about 2 hours. Ever since the day after I feel like I have the flu. I ran fever for about 12 hours and then it returned to normal. But my back hurts between shoulder blades, and I just feel punk. Is this a normal reaction? No swelling or pain in groin where entry was made, the only pain is in my back. At about 3pm I started feeling like my head and ears were and still feel pressurized and my body feels sort of heavy.

I was given Hydrocodon Acetaminophen to take for pain at home and have only used 3. What should I do? Thank you for the education, TahoeDoc. In the span of 5 days I had gone through a failed ERCP, followed by a successful one and then an open cholecystectomy 2 months back and still going through sleep deprivation, itching and easily getting tired. I had no pre-op or post-op orientation about possible effects of being under, so these information are very useful for me to understand what I'm going through and what to expect.

I had general anesthesia three years ago and suffered from POCD for five weeks. I could not remember the previous 30 days, could not remember how to do my job, and felt like I was behind a veil that I couldn't pierce to get to my brain! I was fortunate in that my cognitive function returned, but it was one heck of a 5 week wait. I now consider general anesthesia a life or death decision for me.

I woke up hours later feeling sick and nauseous but managed to feel somewhat normal after the first day or two. It wasn't until day three when I experienced horrible feelings of what may be described as delirium or POCD? These symptoms were almost chronic for a year and I still deal with symptoms that float around. It literally felt like I was trapped in my body and needed to escape. I'm just looking for the old me and I miss feeling comfortable in my body. I have been doing much better but not quite there yet. Thanks and take care One of the reasons more educated, professional people do not report confusion lasting more than a day or two I am older but held a professional job that required much organization until retirement.

I could not remember why I put certain things on my desk "to do" for three days following surgery. On the fourth day I remembered and quickly attached notes as reminders. However, I did not forget again. So long as you report that higher socio econ do not report, they will not.

I am reporting that it happened to me as I stated. I am now in day five and curious to see if anything else pops up. Maybe we are just more patient or have more time and opportunity to wait out the inconveniences. What say you? I had surgery a week ago. Well done article! I had anesthesia for a lengthy brain surgery MVD for trigeminal neuralgia last Fall and had a horrible experience with nausea and vomiting more dry heaves for about 24 hours afterwards.

It was the worst part of my recovery. I wish I had read this beforehand although I do think I was given the anti-nausea meds by the anesthesiologist and surgeon after. I woke up absolutely burning up in the immediate recovery area when I came to, so badly that they were putting ice all over me. I still don't know why that would happen as I never did ask about it. It's nice to see doctors on here providing such great advice. Thank you! One anesthesiologist I had gave me some very good advice once. If you still feel sleepy afterward, then keep on sleeping until it wears off.

Don't fight drowsiness! I tried it and it was the best sleep I ever had. I am a twenty year old male in very good health. A week ago I had my tonsils removed and had no problems after waking up from the anesthesia. Unfortunately I began bleeding severely on day five and had to have emergency surgery to stop the bleeding.

After the second procedure I woke up shaking uncontrollably and was very confused what was going on. If I remember correctly I was given Demerol to calm me down. I stayed the night in the hospital and didn't have any complications. The next night, sleeping at home, I woke up shaking and tensing exactly as I did after waking up from the anesthesia.

Can you tell if this is common or not and what could have caused this event? I wish I could do it even more consistently! Thank you!! Just had to thank you again I had surgery in November, still chasing those pesky fibroids, this surgeon got them ALL! It's because of your article and the last great anesthesiologist that I knew I could talk to the anesthesiologist this time.

I made it clear to every prep person I needed to talk to the anesthesiologist and together we made the decision to use propofol. The nurse had big problems getting the IV in, as usual, and the anesthesiologist helped distract me. Working together- everything went smooth. Never felt pain. Went for Jamaican food after surgery :.

It is interesting that you wrote this right now because I just had a major "go round" with my pain management doctor because his anesthesia people have been using Fentanyl with me, despite the fact that I have asked them directly not to do so due to the fact that this stuff really has a bad after affect on me. WHAT can they be thinking? Fortunately, I did not experience any of the side effects you have researched and listed.

I understand confusion and memory loss are very common with ECT thankfully, I did not experience that either. After the third treatment I had, upon waking from the anesthesia I could not breathe! It was one of the most frightening moments of my life. Prior to the following treatment the doctors administered some other type of anesthesia so I wouldn't wake up gasping for air. The doctors said that not being able to breathe after anesthesia is not common. Interesting hub! I had surgery last month and over-all had very few side effects from the anesthesia.

However, it did seem to take my body a while to get back into a normal rythm again - I just didn't feel like myself for several weeks. I don't know how much of that is because of the anesthesia and how much was a normal part of the healing process. Thanks for sharing your insight and expertise - voted up! I had a Sleeve Gatrectomy 8 days ago. The past couple of days I have had these spells of getting very sleepy, and feeling very drugged. Arms feel very heavy and like I can't control them, slurred speech, unbalanced, just feel like I'm drugged.

Would this be an after effect of anesthesia? How long does anesthesia stay in your body?

So I had shots in my lower back for pain, and they used an IV and called it 'Conscious sedation'. I woke up in the night with terrible heartburn, and it's still here this morning.

The Naked Truth (38

Could it be from this procedure? Heartburn is kind of a rarity for me. Is this the right place to ask a question? I had a total hip replacement five years ago. I have severe sleep apnea and asthma. I woke up 2 days after the surgery. Also I was afraid I could not breathe.

Free Thought Lives

I asked for something for anxiety and then was hallucinating and delusional for days. Could you shed any light on this? I went in to get four wisdom teeth removed and when I woke up they only had done two, and left a huge whole on the bottom where they attempted to remove a third one when I became combative. I'm an 18 year old female with no history of "gang related violence".

Needless to say they were very rude to me when I woke up and apologized and they told me to find somewhere else to go because I was a danger to be worked on in their office. I was given 15mg of anesthetics during the procedure. I dealt with the itching and confusion. When I was being wheeled to recovery the doctor looked at me and said, "Don't worry. I still remember. Great article. Thank You Daughter or Maat for bringing it to my attention. I am rummaging through synapses and neurotransmitters seeking discovery.

I had a thoracotomy of the right lung back in ' I do not know what occurred or inquired regarding the operating room.

Common Anesthesia Side Effects: What to Expect | HealthProAdvice

I remember in the waiting area before surgery with many other patients they gave me a shot and said I will fade and I did. They did the prep work. I remember the conversation of the nurses like a hazy dream. That did affect me. I remember awakening and I had one sock one foot and the other was gone. My sister and her husband were standing at the foot of the gurney. I asked them to give me my sock back. Then I think I faded again. My next memory was in the ICU I believe and hooked up to stuff. The odd part is I have a blank spot of either no memory or as termed a cheesecloth effect for near two or more months.

I just have simply an inability to recall for about a few days before the surgery back for a month to two months. I did have an early amnesia experience back in '78 two and the retrograde experience was years. Not sure if those two correlate or not. I don't remember any sickness.

I seem to remember I had a mask or nostril tube in ICU until a point. I was quezzy when they made me walk around the ICU center and balanced myself against the wall for a few days. After transferred to a hospital and later discharged I was more hyperactive, but I attributed that to a diagnosis of bipolar disorder and hypomania, so not sure if a side effect of not. Great article TahoeDoc! And, thank you for the experience of sharing. I think it did help with stuff I am going through today. I love your hubs!

The Thanksgiving Day / Black Friday At Home Workout

The last time I had general anesthesia, I ended up with a migraine that lasted four days. Lortab didn't touch it, and they wouldn't give me anything else. My neck muscles were also achy which I think is what triggered the migraine most of my migraines come from my neck. Great hub, voted up and shared! Hello there! I just was looking around on the Internet at about am due to not being able to sleep. I just had my wisdom teeth pulled this morning and it was the first time I've ever been "put under" for anything so I am definitely blessed thus far!

I found this Hub to see if any questions or topics had been covered due to the issue of having problems sleeping after receiving anesthesia. I have been thoroughly impressed with your knowledge and expertise and feel better knowing that in a few short days time I will be back to normal! Thank you for taking the time to answer questions in a very thorough manner! Any patient would be lucky and blessed to have you as their anesthesiologist!

I had surgery 24 hours ago. They had a hard time waking me up. I'm still very sedated and in a fog. How long will this last? Christine- I'm not sure I have a great explanation for you that the cardiac testing wasn't able to find. I have seen people have severe vasovagal reactions including something called the Jarrish-Bezold reaction both under anesthesia, during surgery and after it. It doesn't have to be at the time of an injection, either. But, it usually is related to some event- needle, nerves, reaction to some other sensation on the body, changing position standing up, especially if dehydrated.

It's possible that the anesthetics and dehydration make you more prone to have these reactions and lower the threshold for some usually innocent stimulus to set it off. Other than that, it would be hard to say what causes this. The fact that it happened twice warrants more investigation or a question to your primary doctor, in my mind, just to be cautious. See if your primary doctor has any suggestions- for example, was the circulation to your brain checked carotid ultrasound with the heart testing.

Would a neurologist be useful for some kind of testing to see if there is a nervous system reaction? Has you thyroid been checked? Blood chemistries? Usually, the sleep apnea causes strange things like arrhythmias to happen during sleep, if and while the oxygen is low. Severe sleep apnea over a long period of time can cause more prevalent and long-lasting changes.

Heart rate and electrical conduction can definitely be affected over time. I would ask your primary doctor for your next move. It sounds like the first event was in the presence of health care practitioners. It's quite possible this will be determined to be a severe vasovagal reaction I had a patient with this not long ago and his heart rate went to I haven't even asked if you are taking any medicines.

Some meds, such as beta-blockers or other blood pressure medicines, can make this more likely to happen. Everything went well and I was ready to get up and go home, when suddenly my heart stopped and I awoke approximately 1 mintue later with about 8 people standing around my bed shouting at me scary! They were ready to start CPR and use the defibrillator, but fortunately I came around without such help.

After several heart tests over the next week or so, it was determined that there was nothing wrong with me. I had received a toradol shot just prior to the heart-stopping incident and they ended up labeling it an extreme vasovagal syncope reaction based on my history of sometimes passing out because I HATE needles. Yesterday I had an endometrial ablation done with the same anesthesia. Because of the prior incident everyone agreed that skipping the toradol injection would be a great idea. Again, I was perfectly fine after the procedure. I got dressed and was wheeled out of the hospital to my husband.

About 5 minutes after we left the hospital, the same exact thing happened. I passed out, eyes rolled back, completely unresponsive and weak or no pulse. This time it lasted around 2 minutes and I woke up with him shouting at me scary again! It was so weird because both times I was fine for a good half-hour after the surgery, then my heart quit and I spent the next few hours groggy, nauseus and miserable. Clearly this was not a vasovagal reaction to an injection because the injection never occurred yesterday.

Could it have anything to do with the possibility that I have sleep apnea? I've not been diagnosed, but I meet all the internet criteria. Do you have any idea about what could have happened? Any advice would be great I had my gall bladder removed last week, and during my post-op, I had a very severe reaction to the anesthesia. I woke up yelling, trying to stand on the bed but what made it worst was that the Anesthesiologist along with two nurses were laughing at my reaction, not trying to calm me down, it continued when i was taken to my room, the nurse let me crawl from the post-op bed to my hospital bed, the whole time I was telling him it wasn't funny and to help, he made a small move to help but it was my assigned room nurse that came in and helped me calm down.

Since then I have had some very severe body aches not just from the surgery but I think from all the jumping and crawling around I did. I have had several surgeries so I am pretty familiar with the "common" side effects, nothing like this. I had angallbladder removed 5 days ago. Right after the surgery my co2 levels dropped to below Could this have been the anesthesia? I've heard so many guesses it has me concerned I have greater issues. Should I just rule this as a post surgery fluke that lasted 5 days? It's really hard to even guess without knowing more about you or the events before, during and after your surgery.

There are some general factors that can cause oxygen I assume you meant o2 and not co2 to drop after gall bladder surgery. Ask your surgeon at your follow up visit what they decided was the main cause. There are just too many variables and potential factors to have any idea without the whole story. Sorry I can't give more insight and I hope that you are feeling better!! I wouldn't say it's typical, but not abnormal either, meaning, I don't think it means anything is wrong or went wrong. There is just a very wide range of ways people react to the meds and procedures.

Hopefully, you are feeling back to normal soon and be glad to have that necessary but not widely-loved : procedure over with. I had an endoscopy done Tuesday On Wednesday and Thursday I slept a lot. Today I woke up at 7 am and at 8 am I went back to sleep and slept till 2 pm.. Thank you very much TahoeDoc - so lovely of you to give your time when you must be so busy! Yes, I think that would be the only way to know for sure. Let me know if you do find out as I'm curious too : Plus, it would be good for you to know in the future!

Thank you for your quick response. I'm assuming that the following statement "If you actually felt giddy, it's likely there was one or more of those drugs used too. I've had versed and nitrous oxide on previous occasions and did not experience anything like the effect I wrote about. Based on what you said about titrated propofol, I could see how it might lessen the chances I'd wake up angry, but I don't see how it would explain the profound feeling of happiness I experienced.

Just to be clear, I never "wake up swinging". That would be my son Jake when he was 4. My son Josh woke up crying at the same age. I'm just angry, grouchy or in a bad mood, but not violent. The feeling of happiness I felt was so intense and unlike anything I have ever felt before that it leads me to believe it was induced by a very specific action taken by the anesthesiologist. I guess the only way to resolve this is to contact him and see if he has an explanation, Thank you again for your help.

I often hear that people have a history of waking that way. Men, often those in the military, law enforcement or jail wake up swinging. When I hear this, I tell the patient a few things. First, I talk to them quite a lot. I tell them to get used to the sound of my friendly : voice. When they hear me at the end of the operation, they will recognize it and 'do what I say' my joke and wake up nice and calm. This is a small factor, but one that probably contributes to a smoother wake up in some way.

The more important thing I do is to let the wake up happen more gradually. I might give some extra medications like the sedative that is often given preoperatively midazolam, Versed. Propofol titrated in very small amounts as the patient is waking up, also helps to smooth and slow the wakeup so that you can gradually regain consciousness and remember where you are and that there is no threat. It is also possible that you woke up on nitrous oxide laughing gas as another agent to ease you back to consciousness.

Usually, the effects of that are pretty short-lived though. I have found that just reassuring the patient and then telling them ahead of time I like to do it when they are going to sleep too- more suggestible that they will wake up happy will lead to a better wake up. If you actually felt giddy, it's likely there was one or more of those drugs used too. Glad it was a better experience for you!! Hello Doc and thank you for providing such a great service. My name is David, I'm 52 and had cervical surgery two weeks ago.

The surgery went well and I'm recovering nicely. I've been told that in the past I'm angry when I wake up from surgery. My wife told the anesthesiologist this prior to this last surgery. He said something like "I'll take care of that". It was something a long the lines like he was going to do something to reduce or avoid it happening. When I woke up I was extremely happy, giddy even. I can't say I've ever felt anything like it. This went on for what seemed like hours but had to be at least about an hour. My wife was there and I kept thanking her for staying with me.

I couldn't stop saying how happy I was.

Do you have any idea what the anesthesiologist gave me to cause this result? Likely, the sedative made you start to feel like you were drifting off. Then as you are breathing oxygen, other medicines are given in your intravenous line that make you go all the way to sleep. So, it's possible you were breathing oxygen like he said, but were getting the anesthesia induction agents I call them 'all the way to sleep medicines' for my patients in the IV. I am so glad to hear this went well knowing how anxious you were. Thank you so much for reporting back and letting me know.


Happy Holidays. Usually, those type of issues are with the swallowing mechanism as controlled by the brain, rather than structural issues in the throat. A stroke or decline in mental functioning are possible after anesthesia and surgery and are the more likely cause, usually, anyway. I have never heard of aspiration food going to lungs rather than esophagus following anesthesia due to damage to structures in the throat. If he had other changes, like weakness or signs of stroke, this is more likely.

It's really hard to say without a full exam to assess his overall function. I'm sorry I can't really say what's going on without more info. I haven't really heard of long-time feeding issues due to damage from the breathing tube or its placement. See of remaining comments.
