Default are there long-term side effects about general anesthesia for babies?

Hi,all

my son is now 7 month old and have done his first laser treatment under general anesthesia(GA) when he was 6 month old. In the following months and years, we will continue with the treatment. However, i have concerns that are there long-term side effects on the babies? they are so young and in the process of developing both mentally and physically from 6 month old to 3 years-old. i am not sure whether there are any bad effects if we do so many treatments (every 2 or 3 months)with GA during this important growth stage. such as speech delay or other learning ability delay?

i really appreciate if some moms can share their opinion on this. or how long is appropriate between two laser treatment? 2 or 3 months or 4 months?

thanks so much~~~
