I had a bad reaction to anesthesia with headaches, and loss of memory and in a fog. Now they found brain lesions could the reaction cause the lesions?

In brief: No

The lesions might have been uncovered by the anesthetic, but they could not have been caused by it.
Areas around brain lesions of any type are much more sensitive to anesthesia. This us due to the disruption if blood flow around those sites. Because of this an anesthetic could take longer to wear off from these areas causing confusion and your other symptoms.

In brief: Anesthesia reaction

No probably the opposite.
The lesions caused the symptoms from anesthesia to occur. Diagnosis of the lesions seems prudent. A consultation with your primary care doctor or a neurologist is indicated. Take care. Thank you for the question.

In brief: Unlikely

The episode more likely has exposed the problem. What was the indication for the surgery which could relate as well.
