TT and MR without general anaesthesia

Postby grumpyonmonday » Fri May 08, 2009 2:42 pm

Hello,

I hope to have a tummy tuck with MR soon but i am totally petrified of going under general anaesthesia and I am worried that i will freak out and cancel my surgery simply for this reason. I would like really good results and a narrow waist as well as a small umbilical hernia repaired. Is it possible to get this surgery without going "under" GA. If so, what options are open to me. Please help...I am irrationally worried about GA.

thanks
Grumpy

Anesthesia is an extremely safe proposition. If you are healthy there should be no problems whatsoever. Sedational TT is not feasible. Don't let an irrational fear get in the way of a new physique.

thank you for your reply. You are absolutely right..will try to get past my irrational fear and prepare for my surgery. Just curious still...is there any way to determine before-hand whether one is allergic to the anaesthesia?.
