This isnt an allergic reaction. Some people are resistant to the anesthesia. They give a paralyzing agent when they do surgery so people dont move. They put an airway in and breathe for the person because it paralyzes them all over. They just didnt sedate her into a deep enough sleep. It could have been resistance to the sedating agent or she may have had an incompetent anesthesiologist. If she ever needs surgery again, she needs to mention that this happened so they know to give her more medicine to put her brain to sleep. It is very scary to patients that this happens to but it does happen on occasion.
