How long does the anesthesia stay in your system?

I'm 10 days post-op and sometimes still feel like the anesthesia is still flitting anbout in my brain. I've seen mention that the anesthesia does lingerf in the body. I'm noy having tons of pain. When it all wears off will I get whopped with pain? Is this what is making me feel so tired..or is that just the energy my body is expending to heal itself? Any info would be appreciated.

Hi again, Kim.

I've heard that the anesthesia can linger in your system for several weeks. (I've even heard up to 6 months, but I don't know how accurate that is.)

Brain is just one of the side effects, your body can also be rather numb, which is why it's so easy to overdo it the first couple of weeks.

But from your posts, it sounds like the Pillow are on patrol, so I guess you don't have to worry about that!

Brain fade is right! Find myself drifting off intothe ozone mid sentence! Tip of my tongue still feels sort of numb..like I burned it or something. Time will tell I guess. Yep..the pillow police are in force here Especially on the weekend when I have 24 hour guard!

I'm with Sashi- It doesn't make sense pathphysiologically that it would linger for 6 months. however the fluffier one is....because it can sort of linger in the fat cells. I would expect 2-3 weeks tops. And of course, you know what you have to do.....

your water.......That helps flush flush fush the whole system with water......
