How are you? Minor side effects from general anesthesia and surgery are common. These include nausea, sore throat, headache, or muscle aches.These are most often not serious and resolve on their own in hours or a few days after the anesthesia wears off. You can take pain medications prescribed by your doctor for relief. If it persists, you should inform your doctor about this. It is important that you go to your follow-up appointment with your surgeon which is usually within two weeks after your surgery.
