What post operation injections are given after gallbladder and appendix is removed ?

I had my gallbladder and appendix removed. I woke up in typical anesthesia induced fog to a code being called a nurse stradling me, one at my left side trying to shake me, and another on my right thrustng a syringe in my upper right thigh. Why would this have happened?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
During a surgery generally slight sedation is also required for complete muscle relaxation specially in abdominal surgeries. The foggy feeling you had might be due to the effect of sedatives. The shots after surgery are for pain control usually.
