How can post operative effects be treated ?

I am 57, male, 6 1 , 210 lbs, diabetic 2. I had a foot infection leading to the amputation of toes and debridement of my left foot. Prior to a below the knee amputation, I had a full leg by-pass which was successful, and did not need the second amputation, which was BRILLIANT :). However, during the bypass procedure, I woke up and, although I have no memory of this mid-operation awakening, I was subsequently visited by my anaesthetist explaining to me what had happened and asking me if I was experiencing any problems. At the time, I was so uncomfortable from the procedure, I felt nothing unusual. I have now been home for almost a month and have an almost overwhelming and unpleasant smell of antiseptic in my nose 24/7, and I am inclined to weep embarrassingly at any movie on TV. On the one hand this is funny and weird, on the other it is embarrassing and unpleasant. Can you offer any advice?

Hi,thanks for query.What you are having has got no medical base.This is not possible.This can happen due to some disliking about certain things.Try to forget the incident and start thinking some thing different.Most of the leg surgeries are done in spinal anaesthesia and only sedation is given to make you feel comfortable.
wishing you good health.
