Weird question. But has had anyone had any type of surgery where they have been put under anesthesia, and if so did it effect their seizures. I had knee surgery and it was noticed by some people that for a while when the anesthesia was in my system ( for the first week or two as anesthetics last in the body for a while) my seizures were absolutely non existant and i noticed i didnt experience any of my normal symptoms with my epilepsy. Has anyone else experienced this?
I was sedated for 10 days a couple years ago. When they were returning me to consciousness, I had a grand mal. I haven't had one for 5 years prior to that nor since. I still have the petits most days and multiple times but I can handle that.
When I had surgery last year ,I did notice my seizures were gone for a few weeks but that was short lived surgery messes with your body and it does take a while for it to start functioning normally .
Although I was also given Diazepam after surgery and during it apparently i did have a seizure under anesthesia and i was also concerned that I would have one during my hospital stay recovery was painful enough the last thing I wanted was to experience a seizure on top of that that would of been terrifying .
I’ve had alot of different surgeries. I had no problems. I actually just had surgery done in October with my 2nd VNS and I was fine but good thing for pain pills.
But like I tell everybody, we’re all different in our own way no matter what it is.
