question about anesthetic during hip replacement...
Hi all -
I'm having a total hip replacement in August and went to my JointWorks session the other day. Found out that I can either have general anethesia or spinal with/without sedation. Apparently the spinal is supposedly better in preventing blood clots, nausea, etc. and the numbing effect lasts for about 6 hours. Has anyone had any experience with this or know anyone who has?
