My mom is going in for knee surgery on thursday (she tore her ACL and miniscus. The former being completely torn off the bone, and the latter being torn down the middle.)
And, she keeps rambling on and on about how she might “die” during the surgery, because of the anaesthesia (Sp?).
So, I was wondering what, if there are any fatalities from anaesthesia, and how high they might be. Does anyone else know of any complications that can arise during the restoration of ligiments (sp?), and the miniscus.
Obviously, if they cut her artery… but any others, because I really do not want to go sit in the waiting room for three hours, for an elective surgery. (I know… I should, but I am missing a lot, I MEAN A LOT at school by going.)
