I have fibromyalgia and I had to have a unterine ablation, which they used a general anesthesia. Within 24hrs of surgery, I couldnt move my body. I was in severe pain. this lasted for about 2 days, then slowly went away. Now I have to have a hysterectomy and Im scared this will happen again. Was it an allergic reaction?

My Mother underwent breast surgery in mid November 2010. At that time she was in very good health and taking no prescription drugs of any kind. She took only vitamins and aspirin 81. Keep in mind, she is 80 years old, exercised almost daily, ate very healthy and had the heart of a 50 year old. Initially after the surgery she was fatigued, which is to be expected. But over the weeks her health deteriorated and just recently she began showing signs of dementia. I understand dementia is a risk of anesthesia in the elderly, but isn't it unusual for it to occur as late as 3 months after the surgery? My question is this: Why would this condition develop so late and how long does it generally take for the anesthesia to eliminate from her system?
