What are some of the problems patients experience coming out of general anesthesia?
After general anesthesia, the most common complication is nausea and vomiting. This occurs more frequently in children, those who have experienced nausea with previous anesthetics, and those who are susceptible to motion sickness. This problem can be prevented or treated if it occurs. Minor complications such as sore throat, headache, hoarseness, drowsiness, muscle aches, and fatigue are common for the first several days following surgery. At the end of the operation you may feel pain in the operated area. Anesthesiologists have developed their treatment so that it is possible to avoid severe pain in most circumstances, particularly after surgery.
