mild hallucinations after surgery
I've had operations before, and have been warned about seeing hallucinations the first day or two after surgery, but the procedure I had this month was the first time I experienced them. Don't worry, they weren't bad!
After I came from from three days in the hospital, for the next 24 hours I saw balloons. Not pastel birthday party-type balloons, but rather the thought balloons you see in comic strips. As soon as I focused on one, it dissipated. I saw ghosts out of the corners of my eyes but when I looked in their direction they were gone. The most bizarre was the cotton shower curtain. It was white but had a checked print to it. The curtain was draped; I mean the panels hung like columns. The columns kept spinning but fortunately I wasn't dizzy.
I saw these oddities for only the first day home. It was probably a result of some anesthesia still in my system plus the narcotics painkillers.
I haven't seen anything since then. I am very glad they weren't scary hallucinations like evil ugly zombies coming toward me!
Have any of you experienced mild hallucinations following an illness or surgery?
