Anesthesia

Joint pain 2 weeks after surgery

02/19/2008

Question:

I had gastric bypass surgery 2 weeks ago. It was done laparoscopically. I have been suffering from joint pain ever since. This was my first surgery and don`t know if it would be related to the anesthetic or something else. I tried to get ahold of my surgeon but haven`t heard anything back. Do you have any insight to my pain?
