My dad is 74 yrs young, had back surgery on March 30 and since then has not been himself. His has become violent. Threatened to kill the nurses, hospital staff and even my mother. Recently his sucker punched 3 nurses and was transmitted to a pysch hospital. THis is so unlike him and i am scared he will never fully recover. They have ruled out any signs of a stroke or any damage to the brain.

Could the effects of anesthesia to completeyl go away take this long? I


  • kawaltersjax you haven't given us enough information. What type of back surgery did he have? How was his demeanor before the surgery? Was he ever violent before this? Did his meds change? Did he get an evaluation by a professional after he turned violent?
