This is a timely question for me since I'm considering knee surgery.
I'm 79 with a complicated high-pressure job at a call center. I dont remember everything ... there is a department we call to look up the answers since we dont have time too ... but I guess I hold my own. So I imagine it might be evident if I have mental complications ... I hope. But what does it matter if there are symptoms if I have them. The idea is to not have them in the first place.
Anyway ... I'm tired of the pain and want it gone before I get too old physically and have no choice except to have surgery done then no matter what.
I have asked for it and my doc has referenced me to a surgeon.
My friend who is 70 is having knee surgery next week and a spinal is being used.
It sounds like a general anesthesia has been used on most of the respondents with problems. Am I right about that?
I dont want problems with a spinal either but there doesnt seem like any good answer since it’s all individual anyway. But I wonder about the percentages.
