How will I feel while I am waking up? PDF Print E-mail

Each person will vary as to how they feel when they awaken. Some patients will experience nausea, mild pain or discomfort, blurred vision, dry mouth and possible feeling cold. In the operating room, your anesthesia team will initiate the postoperative care by giving you medicine to try to prevent nausea and pain. They will have actively warmed your body while you were in the operating room. Your recovery room nurse will be there to continue with the warming and adding additional medications to assist with certain symptoms such as pain and nausea. Sometimes the medicine that the anesthesia providers give to reverse certain anesthesia medicines will give you that dry mouth sensation or blurred vision. Those sensations should not last very long.
