In brief: Yes

Anesthetic drugs clear from your body completely after about three days.
The residual effects of an operation at this time are usually due to the narcotics needed for pain control. The only issue that would be of concern would be if there was a problem with your first anesthetic it should be clearly communicated to your next anesthesiologist.
