Hi. I received general anesthesia for a minor surgical procedure eight days ago. I've noticed that my urine has a strong odor to it--it was particularly powerful the same day of my surgery but it is still lingering. Is it likely that I am smelling the anesthesia being voided from my system? I have no other symptoms and feel fine. Thanks in advance for your help!

I have a close friend that was in a serious auto accident ... brain buise is what they have told us. He has been sedated with propofol now on fentanyl . Seems extremely aggitated and much anxiety. when they lighten his meds to try to wake him up a little/ Does this sound correct. He is in ICU but was wondering if someone read to him or played soft music it would have a calming effect.

Just curious....I recently had an endoscopy performed given "conscience sedation". Apparently, I "woke up" during the procedure (though I have no memory of it) and began grabbing the instrument out of my mouth and fighting with the nursing staff. I now have to have another procedure underr general anethesia. Why was the conscience sedation ineffective and why did I wake up during the procedure fighting?
