What are the complications of anaesthesia?
The less serious complications have already been discussed.

More serious complications are not necessarily due to the anaesthesia, but a combination of various factors. These include: serious allergic reactions, heart attacks, massive blood loss, thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, stroke, serious asthma attacks and other cardio-pulmonary problems.

These complications are very rare and your anaesthesiologist is well qualified to deal with any such complication.
