My name is Lisa. My mother was given Propofol as a general anesthesia for the amputation of a toe and half the accompanying metatarsal bone due to a staph infection we suspect was picked up at a podiatrists office. She is 84 years old and was given a CT scan before admittance to the hospital for treatment of the infection and we were told she had no signs of demetia, Alzheimer's Parkinson's or any other brain affliction. They even jokingly said that she had a beautiful brain LOL. She was sharp as attack, highly intelligent and administered her own bank account and credit cards. I started to notice about 3-4 weeks later that she seemed to be having some sort of short term memory loss. I asked the surgeon about this and she said that it was a side effect of Propofol. Why did they not warn us of this before???? I asked how long this would last and she said anywhere from 2 months to 2 years!!!! Sometimes she can't even remember if she ate breakfast and has written the same checks 3 times for the same bill within a month and can't remember where she puts her bills!!! I am heartbroken that the anesthesiologist did not warn us of this or I would have recommended a nerve block instead of the Propofol. I also had an amputation (of an index finger back in the early 90's) due to a work accident and it was done on an outpatient basis with no side effects whatsoever. I am dismayed that there is no accountability for harming people and the casual indifference to the damage this drug does to ones life. Has anyone ever fully recovered their memory totally and if so how long did it take?? I have called an attorney to see what can be done. If the medical community can not be bothered to advise of side effects of this drug than it should be taken off the market. Inexcusable!!!!
Hello. Im a 53 yr old black woman. I had vascular surgery 6mo ago. I had my 6mo check up a couple of weeks ago. The results were reacurring narrowing. I smoke marijuana because my rheumatologists took me off of pain pills because of the affect they were having on my liver.
