Yes, and it constantly annoys me that people refer to twilights as full GA, however it's often the case that they say one, meaning the other. I guess it's so they don't scare/confuse people.
What made me laugh was when the anaesthetist for my wisdom teeth removal looked at me in mock shock and pointed out that if he gave me a full GA he'd have to use a breathing tube as well... and that would be annoying for the dental surgeon lol. I am sure they could manage but it was the way he said it =) He was a nice bloke, let me knock myself out on gas so I didn't have to get stuck with a needle =D
Anyway... all of this blurble was also basically to say that I'm sure it'll all be fine =D, just make sure you tell your anaesthetist that you're BF!!
As I mentioned previously, I fed DS in recovery after my D&C with my Ob right there, I am sure they wouldn't have let me do that (or in fact recommended it) if it wasn't safe =D If you're still at all worried, ask your surgeon and/or paed etc xox

it is completely untrue in regards to the same drugs being used for a GA regardless of what surgery they are doing. All anaesthetists have their own preference when it comes to GA's - there are gases, long acting IV drugs, short acting plus sometimes muscles relaxants and more. It is completely up to the anaesthetist and it also depends on the types of surgery- what is used for a Caesar can be totally different to what they use for a bowel operation or a hip replacement... Or dental surgery.
OP the best thing to do is just talk to the anaesthetist and ask them what you should do! They will tell you based on what drugs they use and I wouldn't worry about the pain relief afterwards, people take lots of different meds for Caesars post op and still breastfeed so don't stress there.

I can't help you on the GA side of stuff, but I recently had twilight sedation. I just fed him and also pumped beforehand, DS had the pumped bottle in between, and then I continued feeding him (next bf was about 7 hours later). No-one batted an eyelid.
As for pain relief, a couple of weeks ago I was unfortunate enough to get a kidney stone. I had a load of serious painkillers in emergency (3 different types - but a fair bit of each) - again no one was the least bit concerned and I went home and bf DS afterwards as I had no bottles for him. He was fine. I didn't pump and dump either, as he needed the feed and no-one thought it was necessary.
I had a day of panadeine forte after my wisdom teeth removal, then just panadol and/or nurofen for 2 or so days. Not sure on the panadeine forte, but panadol and nurofen are ok.
I personally wouldn't worry, but to make you feel better talk to your dr beforehand who will reassure you. The amount and types of drugs I have had to take while pregnant and bf would make anybody gasp. So far DS has had no issues (thankfully!).
