Jan 20, 2017 · Anesthesia types and effect on cognitive function in elderly persons in Brain & Nervous System

Thank you for your response. Everything you say is true. I am one month after surgery now and walking on my own inside and using a cane when walking my dog long distances which I do twice daily. I did have a setback a week ago and could not walk without severe pain. The doctor said I overdid it and I took another 4 days and tested more.
Your advice is very intelligent No I couldnt agree more.

It was a total knee replacement. Operation 9 am Wednesday, up to washroom 11pm Wednesday. Discharged at 5 PM Friday. Staples came out today (13 days after surgery). No pain killers at all after discharge.

Hi,
I just had my knee replaced on December 21. I had an epidural (needle in spine). Also they gave me a relaxant medication -don’t know what it was. I am 77 years old.
I came out of operating room 2 hrs, later wide awake and bright as a daisy. Much better recovery as well. There were people who had the general anaesthetic who were still ‘out’. I am in Canada, so if they do an epidural on your country. I would highly recommend it. Less than 2 weeks and I walked the length of a Mall yesterday.
