I'm getting a key hole surgery (shoulder arthroscopy) this saturday. I'm very scared of anestheisa. Can it hurt me?

Unlikely! For an otherwise healthy person, anesthesia is very low risk due to excellent monitors and safe drugs. Talk to your anesthesiologist about the type of anesthesia that is planned. This could be general anesthesia, or a nerve block. Just be sure not to eat or drink after midnight. Arthroscopy is well tolerated by most people. Best of luck!
