My son will be 2 in May, he's been having boody stool for the past 3 months and the dr's finally decided that he needs surgery to remove polyps. He said he would be under general anesthesia and need to have a feeding tube the night before to "clean him out". Has anyone's child had surgery or anesthesia that can shed some light on what takes place,how they administer the anesthesia, how their kids was when he woke up,ect. Any Information will help!!!!Answer Question

My ds is 19 mo and about 2 months ago he had surgery to correct a bad circ. As the above poster mentioned, they did give my ds some "goofy juice" before any anesthesia. It just really relaxed him so that he would go with the nurse without putting up a fight. We weren't there when the actual anesthesia was there (it was done in the OR). After his surgery we were taken back to his recovery room. He had already been back there for about 20 mins while we talked to the surgeon, so we had about another 30 mins before they released him. The nurse told us to go ahead and give him a dose of Tylenol with codeine about 2 hours after we left to basically have it in his system before the anesthesia completely wore off because of the sensitivity of the area he had surgery. We did that, but that was the only dose he needed. About 4 hours after surgery, he was back to his normal self.
