Brief Answer:
Most likely, she has suffered from brain hypoxia/ischemia.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting your query.

I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and I would try my best to help you.

I have noted your wife's clinical details. Based on this, she has most likely suffered from hypoxia (less oxygen supply) and ischemia (less blood supply) to the brain, due to a complication of anaesthesia. However, you will need to talk to the anaesthetist to confirm the diagnosis.

I would require additional information:

1. Detailed neurological examination by a neurologist- especially pupil size and reaction, eye movements, motor and verbal response, etc

2. EEG report

I hope my answer helps. Please get back with the additional information.

Wishing you good health,
