The length of time it takes after surgery to wake up depends on many factors. These include the type of surgery, length of operation, type of anesthetic drugs used, previous health of the patient, occurrence of complications during surgery.
Hope this helps you.

Hello There..
Welcome to healthcare Magic Forum..
It depends on the type of anesthetic agents used...The most of the anesthetic agents effects subsides immediately after surgery..You could discuss with your doctor about the type of anesthetic agents used and its duration of action..
Hope this helps!!
Take care!!
