Not usually: Rising creatinine and blood urea level is more indicative of kidney insufficiency; anesthesia by itself should not cause this.

Not exactly: The anesthetic itself does not raise BUN and creatinine. However, if the patient is inadequately hydrated, or has decreased blood flow to the kidneys during the operation these values can increase. Talk to your anesthesiologist if you have concerns about this.
