If it is dementia, unfortunately it is permanent it is unrelated to anesthesia

In brief: Drug interaction
The length of the surgery is not paramount here.
What type of anaesthesia - general v regional v local only. Removing the Carbidopa from your regimen may be affecting the efficacy of your medication. Or just a natural progression.

In brief: Unusual
Transient memory loss does happen, but what you describe seems a bit excessive for such a short anesthetic.
I wouls suggest seeing your neurologist.
