Anesthesia

Allergy to Anesthesia

06/23/2008

Question:

I had surgery last fall. I was told afterward by the nurses that I had an allergic response to the anesthesia that caused my heart rate to drop to 30 and my blood pressure to drop to something that they wouldn`t tell me. It took about 5-6 hours for them to get my blood pressure up to my normal level (which is on the low side). Is there the possibility of any long-lasting side effects? I haven`t felt quite right since the surgery, as I am often tired and have trouble remembering things. Thank you for your help.
