Depends on details: There is no possible answer on a public forum because the details of the situation matter a lot. One should ask the doctor who did the procedure and also ask the anesthesia doctor (if there was one). "Stopped breathing," "blood pressure raised," "general anesthesia," and "pipes down my throat" each have very different meanings depending on each patient's interpretation and doctor's perspective.
