How long do the fatigue and "brain fog" last after general anesthesia for surgery? It depends - on your age, the specific drugs used, how long the surgery took and how healthy you were to start with. These days, most general anesthesia is short-acting, which means you wake up quickly and the drugs are mostly out of your system within a few hours, said Dr. Carl Rosow, an anesthesiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital. But tiny amounts can linger for up to seven days - enough so that you may not feel completely normal, especially if you also have a drink or two. Moreover, if you are one of the unlucky 20 percent to 40 percent of patients who have nausea and vomiting after general anesthesia, that can add considerably to your recovery time because of dehydration and weakness from not eating, said Dr. John Ulatowski, director and chair of the department of anesthesia and critical care at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions.

As you know, truck driver fatigue has recently garnered wide media attention because of the tragic crash that occurred on the New Jersey Turnpike that killed one man and critically injured others including actor Tracy Morgan ( "Keep truckers alert," June 9). Unfortunately, the Tracy Morgan crash is just one example of the hundreds of thousands of truck crashes that occur on our nation's roadways each year. Every minute and a half of every day, a large truck is involved in a crash resulting in, on average, 4,000 yearly fatalities and 100,000 more injuries.

THERE'S no doubt that when it comes to war, Americans have a right to know what is going on. The only questions are, how much should they know, and what should they do with the information?I directed my query at Professor Arnold Haspel, Redundant Professor of Information. "How much knowledge can we absorb without suffering from cable fatigue?" I asked him."More than one thinks. The public has to know everything that's going on," said Haspel. "Otherwise people will be left in the dark about Riyadh."

"Since Affirmed in 1978" - it has to be the most overused phrase in thoroughbred racing. And yet it's inevitable every spring, when a new crop of 3-year-olds takes a shot at the sport's most cherished prize - the Triple Crown. Affirmed was the last to do it, 36 years ago, and the ensuing drought has coincided with a long downturn in popularity for racing. The sport's stakeholders have hungered for a new superstar, and a Triple Crown seems the surest way to make one. Which is where California Chrome enters the picture.

When senior attackman Chris Boland converted a feed from junior midfielder John Greeley just 43 seconds into the third quarter to give Johns Hopkins a 6-3 lead, the feeling at Homewood Field in Baltimore was that this would be the opening the No. 5 Blue Jays would need to close out a victory over No. 10 Maryland Saturday night. But Johns Hopkins would not score again over the final 29:17 of the second half, and the Terps charged forward to a 9-6 win. To many of the media members in the pressbox, it appeared that the Blue Jays lost steam while Maryland gained confidence and energy with every positive play.

When Mount St. Mary's travels to Homewood Field for Tuesday evening's showdown with No. 5 Johns Hopkins, the Mountaineers will be playing their fourth game in 11 days. But coach Tom Gravante said he is not worried about fatigue being a factor in the team's 1-2 record over this stretch. The players were given Sunday off after Saturday night's 13-5 loss to Towson, and Gravante said they looked refreshed at Monday morning's practice. “They looked recharged this morning,” he said Monday morning.

Coaches don't like to discuss it, but injuries and conditioning can take a toll on the players and help shape a team's success. While pointedly noting that No. 3 Massachusetts overpowered Towson, 14-3, in a key Colonial Athletic Association contest for both sides Saturday, Tigers coach Shawn Nadelen conceded that rallying from a three-goal deficit in the fourth quarter of Wednesday night's 12-11 decision against UMBC did sap some of the energy...

My father has had trouble getting his blood pressure under control. His doctor has him on atenolol, reserpine, Accupril, Norvasc and hydrochlorothiazide. Dad is terribly depressed and can barely drag himself out of bed. As a result, his doctor prescribed Lexapro. Isn't this too much medication? Reserpine is notorious for causing severe depression. Treating it with an anti-depressant like Lexapro is not logical. A recent meta-analysis of atenolol in The Lancet (Nov. 6, 2004) "cast doubts on atenolol as a suitable drug for hypertensive patients."

AFTER WEEKS OF picking and eating tomatoes, I am beginning to think I never want to see another one. I am suffering from tomato-fatigue syndrome.I suspect there are other folks out there who are suffering from this syndrome and who are also seeing red. I bet these folks are staring at mounds of home-grown tomatoes and feeling conflicted. They know that eating fresh-from-the-garden tomatoes is one of the great pleasures of life. But by now they feel pleasured-out.In July, a bite of plump tomato still warm from the sun sent their taste buds into ecstasy.

A BALTIMORE County trucking firm, George Transfer Inc., filed for bankruptcy Feb. 16. The Federal Highway Administration, after fining the firm more than $400,000 in the past three years for numerous safety violations, shut it down in January 1996 for failing to take corrective action. Violations included 232 instances of requiring or permitting drivers to falsify logs aimed at keeping tired truckers off the road.The New Jersey Transit Authority has announced that it is ending the nighttime split shift schedule worked by an engineer who ran a red light Feb. 9, ramming his Hoboken-bound train into an oncoming train which had the right of way. The engineers on both trains and a passenger were killed, and 160 people were injured.

Are consumers getting tired of jeans? One retail analyst thinks so. Changing the color and fit used to be enough to prompt shoppers to go out and buy something new, but "the lack of any real innovation in jeans has created consumer fatigue," Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst for The NPD Group, says in a blog post today. Sales of jeans, which performed well through the recession, fell 5 percent for the year ending in March, Cohen says, with declines of 4 percent for men's jeans, 5 percent for women's and 10 percent for kids.

After Johns Hopkins and Mount St. Mary's played Saturday with differing results -- the No. 9 Blue Jays beat No. 5 Maryland and the Mountaineers fell to Bryant -- both teams will share similar concerns as they head into Monday's 4 p.m. game at Waldron Family Stadium in Emmittsburg. Both sides will have to figure out how to rebound from physically taxing games and find enough energy to work for a victory. Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala has already called Monday's matchup “a trap game” that looms as a potential upset for the Blue Jays (7-3)

State regulators are now deep into the details of Baltimore Gas and Electric Co.'s request for higher rates, a case expected to wrap up by the end of the year — 10 months after the last increase went into effect. The Maryland Public Service Commission is hearing testimony from the utility, opponents and others this week and will take comments from the public in a set of meetings next month. Some of the feedback suggests rate-case fatigue. "It is very difficult to face a third rate increase in four years with this case coming less than three months after the last case ended," said John E. Abrahamson, purchasing manager for Columbia-based W.R. Grace & Co., in written testimony on behalf of large energy users.

SEATTLE - Orioles set-up man Pedro Strop , who was supremely effective for most of this season, has struggled with his command for a few weeks, leading to speculation that he's getting worn down by the grind and spotlight of a major league season. It's definitely been rocky recently, the 27-year-old right-hander said, but no way is he admitting he is tired. "I don't like to use that word," Strop said. "Obviously, it's not going to be the same from the beginning of the season until now. But I won't say I'm tired.

The All-Star Game brings more than just a midseason shot of excitement to Major League Baseball. It provides much-needed rest for the players, a four-day respite in a 162-game season that often produces fatigue and injury. The players who most need rest are the starting pitchers, who, paradoxically, get the most rest during the season, playing only every fifth day. Yet, midseason pitching swoons, like the Oriole starters have recently experienced, are not uncommon. Perhaps the best-known case of pitching fatigue to occur around the All-Star break was that of Bob Feller, the Cleveland fireballer who at age 17 struck out 17 batters in his fifth major-league start.

Please, who cares who won the final debate? Who cares anymore to listen about Pell grants and tort reform and fiscal discipline and a "global test" and a "culture of life"? Who cares who's a Catholic or lesbian or a lesbian Catholic!? Who cares who won't be getting a flu shot? We got it now. Messages delivered. Facts stretched and checked. Stow the lecterns and green, yellow and red lights. President Bush and Sen. John Kerry are very different - although they both agree that women are pretty cool and we should listen to our women and trade-up whenever possible.
