My guy is set to have a procedure that it usually done under anesthesia, but can be done, with some discomfort of course, with local anesthetic only. I have heard many stories of psp patients - and others - who suffer irreversible loss of intellectual functioning after anesthesia, but am I overreacting if I nudge the doctor to choose the more painful way? (Sometimes I do wish I weren't the one making these decisions.) I'd be glad of any advice. How prevalent is the problem? What has your experience been, good or bad, with anesthesia? Thanks!
