The hidden long-term risks of surgery: ‘It gives people’s brains a hard time’
I ran across a good read on the hidden long-term risks of surgery: ‘It gives people’s brains a hard time’. I had a liver and kidney transplant and was in surgery for 24 hours. I had "drop foot" from being on my side for so long (I have since recovered). I had brain fog for a while, which was expected. And, the meds, of course, contributed. Plus I was so very sick when I finally received the xplant. I am 5 years out now and am doing pretty good, but I knew that being under anesthesia for so long had to have consequences. I feel that remaining engaged in life and being creative is so important to the mental recovery aspect. I would like to hear what others think.
