General anaesthetic this morning

I had a general anaesthetic this morning for a IUA but was only under for around 20 minutes. Therefore I feel ok now (better than I have in the past) although a bit wobbly.

In anyone's experience, do you think I'll generally be ok over the weekend? Probable won't drive until Sunday morning but hoping to get back to the gym on Monday or Tuesday.

Am I mad or this what you'd expect for a low-dose anaesthetic? I'm no doctor obviously just presuming it's a low dose as the procedure was so short.

No driving for 24 hrs and no alcohol.

If you get a good night's sleep tonight you should be ok tomorrow to drive. But maybe still a little dopey for the gym. But everyone is different.
