The intravenous medications that are used for anesthesia can have many unusual effects. This is because they temporarily disrupt the normal functioning of higher level thought in the brain. As a result, more primitive brain functions can be unmasked, and it is not uncommon for people common out of anesthesia to be anxious, combative, or to otherwise act in ways they would not normally act. This is a unfortunate but fairly common side effect.
You do not need to worry
about this at all. It does not mean that there is something wrong with you or that you need to be worked up for an underlying medical problem. It would, however, be nice for you to keep noted down which medication you were given for anesthesia when this happened. This is because, if you ever have another operation, your anesthesiologist
will probably want to avoid using this medication in the hopes of preventing a similar reaction.
As always if you have any more questions about this issue or any other medical problems, your primary resource should always be your primary care doctor
, as they will be happy to discuss any of your questions with you at greater length whenever you need.
