I have to undergo anesthesia for treatment on "frozen shoulder", and I've heard that undergoing anesthesia can lead to brain fog in patients who are recovering from brain injuries.
I'm 1.5 years out from my rupture/craniotomy, and in all honesty, I'm JUST starting to get a little bit of my groove back. I know I will never be the same, but I'm making strides in terms of attention span, lessening fatigue, etc. THEN this shoulder situation comes about, and it's pure agony. The formal name is adhesive capsulitis, and it can take up to a year to resolve with or without intervention. It's chronic and debilitating.
This procedure is not necessary; but it may speed up healing. "may" being the keyword; it also may not.
What would you do? If you've had good or bad experiences with anesthesia after your initial brain issue, can you share it with me?
Thanks in advance, I value your point of view!
