Letters to Dr. Rod:
Hi, Dr. Rod --
I have a brother-in-law. Let's call him "Skip." He had surgery last
Thursday under general anesthesia. The surgery's gone well, he's
recovering nicely. But he's had the hiccups since he woke up. Doctors
think it's a result of his anesthesia.
My questions are:
(1) Is this common?
(2) If it is, what's the average amount of time before they finally
(3) What's the base number he can sue?
Your biggest fan, 1,834,610,580 and counting.
Dear biggest fan,
Although surgeons love to blame any complication hiccups have been
described following general anesthesia. Although I have never seen any
personally in my practice the incidence reported to be as high as 15%.
It is more commonly found following placement of a laryngeal mask airway
(LMA) especially in people with a history of gastric reflux. Although
annoying, it usually self-limited. Metoclopromide (Reglan) is reported
to be effective. I'm not sure of the average time but any longer than 48
hours and the hiccups would be classified as chronic.
As far as litigation, I don't know if there is a base number. So sue me.
*Disclaimer: Dr. Rod didn't get to sleep till 4AM last night then had to
get up at 6, so he may be talking out of his ass.*
Dear Dr. Gas-Man,
Thanks much for the information. I passed it on to the b-i-l. Expect a
subpoena on Monday.
Y. B. F.
