Why is being dizzy part of recovery process after a surgery? I had it last night, and my eye is still recovering from the surgery, but it is doing fine for now.

the only surgeries I have had were two c-sections and I was not dizzy at all with one, but the second time, instead of epidural, they gave me another type of spinal block, and I got dizzy right in the middle of it, scared, and told them, and the anesthesiologist said, to look at him and focus and I did and it went away. It freaked me out. then a few yrs ago, I had an endoscopy minor procedure where they put that scope down your throat, and you are in a twilight sleep, well, after they gave me the drugs, I got dizzy and told them, and then I was out. so I guess I have a reaction to that stuff, so in the future I wil be sure and tell them, and you might want to also. I hope you aren't having that anymore.

Howdy Nyu.

I have had several surgeries for various reasons and not one of them did I have dizziness post op or even in the hospital recovering. So from my perspective (mine alone) it is not ALWAYS a part of post surgery recovery.

I have done a bit of digging around on the 'net and found this list from Buzzle as to why you may be having dizzzziness / lightheadedness / vertigo:

"Causes of Dizzy Spells
Dizzy spells can be caused due to various reasons ranging from an insufficient supply of blood to the brain, low blood pressure, vertigo, infection in the inner ear, to the use of certain drugs. The following write-up provides information on the contributory factors behind frequent episodes of dizziness."

I pray your dizziness resolves quickly and without further trouble.
