  • What kind of anesthesia is used for wrist surgery?

    There are local anesthetics plus what we call conscious sedation (mild sedation where you're comfortable, yet you are awake), or general anesthesia if your condition is okay that puts you totally to sleep.

    No, in general terms, not knowing what kind of sleeping pills he is taking. almost in the vast majority of cases one should have no problems.

If there is a problem, it is days after the surgery, and the team again will adjust the dose of sleeping pills to either a higher or lower dose, in most cases, s higher dose because now they have pain and anxiety after the surgical procedure. Good luck. READ MORE
