I was never a great speech maker, but it seems since my last ablation under general anesthesia I have a lot more frequent incidents of garbled speech, or just plain inability to think of a word while right in the middle of a sentence. It is getting better as time elapses (two months now). Has anybody else experienced this? I didn't have it after the first ablation, but I suspect they used a different anesthesia this time, as there was no recovery headache as with the first. Maybe you have to "choose your poison" and the consequence with it.
