I would PM Nancy and ask her, she's had a few hedgehogs who have had surgeries.

Oh and anesthetic and metabolism are related, all drugs are affected by metabolism. Metabolism is how our bodies break down the drug and excrete it from our bodies. Someone which a high metabolism will clear a drug from their system faster than a person with a slow metabolism. There are other factors as well but metabolism is a big one.
