For Anesthesia “I was given this drug in 2012/ I’ve been experiencing dementia stages, delirium eight weeks post surgery. Then again dementia stages within a year, then again dementia stages with two days of delirium. Then I had another episode about 3 to 5 Day dementia like symptoms. 2016, I was experiencing dementia symptoms seven days straight, then was found on the seventh day and delirium stage hospitalized, drug culture came back with no drugs in my system. There are told to put me in restraints never Happened my family was holding me down, two security guards on my feet, and then a nurse came in said I was spitting, she came down on me with an elbow knocking out my top teeth bottom tooth on the left side of my jaw! I need help and answers. Many others out there. No help from no one, doctors neurologists etc. do not want to address the issue.”

For Anesthesia “we used regularly in ICU, very few side effects, patients fell asleep quickly & returned to alertness quickly. Dosage needs varied between patients. We also used for what is called ‘conscious sedation’ for out patient procedures. Again dosage needs do vary between people and it is not just height and weight. It takes an experienced practitioner to use in conscious sedation. I worked in the ICU for 7 years. I had for upper endoscopy w/o side effects during or after procedure.”

For Anesthesia “I had foot surgery in 09′ . This was my very first surgery ever. I had never been put to sleep my entire life. I was given Diprivan (propofol) as the anesthetic. I would have to say that if I ever needed another surgery, I would request this anesthesia. It was wonderful. I remember absolutely nothing about the surgery at all and it felt like it took like 2 minutes. However, I remember the anesthetist saying one of the side effects was I was going to feel rushed or in a hurry when I woke up. I had the complete opposite effect. I was nice and comfy in my wheelchair, and wasn’t planning on leaving any time soon apparently. I was in a very happy place. I would recommend this to anyone very apprehensive or nervous about any kind of surgery.”

For Anesthesia “I had my first screening colonoscopy with propofol. I was out within a few seconds of administration of it. I woke up after 30 minutes with no side effects. I was up and around within an hour and I had normal meal after. I did feel usually “high” or happy afterward, I don’t know if it was the propofol or the good results of the colonoscopy.”

For Anesthesia “I have a psuedocholonesterase Def. (allergic to normal anesthesia). I had a laparoscopic procedure done while under Diprivan and had no side effects from this. Psuedocholonesterase Def. can be deadly so check this out as an option.”

For Anesthesia “I had a minor procedure done to remove a piece of food that stuck in my throat. I also am on the fentanyl patch for the last 10 yrs for my constant pain. After about 2-3 minutes the first shot didn’t have any effect on me. I was not sleepy at all. To make a long story short because of my pain management medicines they had to give me 4 shots to put me under.”
