Manhattan, NYC. EVERYBODY knows about these cases, not only AA at this point. I'm white, I know the BS police is trying to get away with. I had enough too. So go figure if you are AA, hence more informed about the hundreds the police has been killing across the country in daylight, in the middle of the street. Really feel that AA have been putting up with a lot, we should be joining forces to stop these abuses and drop the BS. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My son had his tonsils out three weeks ago, and we fear he's been damaged in some way from the anesthesia. He has forgotten his numbers beyond twenty; his stories no longer make sense; his fine motor skills have seriously regressed, etc. We are beside ourselves, as you might imagine. His pediatrician, ENT, and anesthesiologist insist that this is all normal and that we don't need to worry, but we feel that they are brushing us off. But maybe not? Has this happened to anyone else? Any advice? For the record, my kid is 5 and he was under for about 40 minutes. He cried inconsolably for an hour after he woke from surgery and had nightmares and hitting for the first week after, although those symptoms have stopped. Any encouraging thoughts or helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated! 28 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

OP here--of course we've been googling like mad, and there's plenty of evidence of behavioral issues being standard (over %50 incidence) in the weeks following surgery, but I haven't found anything about cognitive deficits. The anesthesiologist deflected my questions to a discussion of behavior, but again, it's the cognitive stuff that's concerning. I will try to contact a neurologist. And perhaps speak to another pediatric anesthesiologist? Jesus fucking christ. [ Reply | More ]

OP again -- I don't think they gave him anything before the surgery: we were with him him the operating room until he went under. And the induction was awful awful awful -- he was thrashing about and panicking and even had involuntary movements like he had cerebral palsy. Again, they said that was normal -- "just the excitatory phase." [ Reply | More ]
