Gena Posted April 13, 2006 Report Share Posted April 13, 2006 My gynecologist will be doing minor surgery on me in June. I told her that I have dysautonomia/POTS and she said that my legs will be elevated during the surgery (which will take about 15 minutes) and then lowered --will this cause any problems??. She said she can have extra blankets on me to keep me warm if that will help. She will leave everything else up to the anesthesiologist, whom I will meet with prior to the surgery.She said normally they do a light sedation in IV with anesthesia block from the waist down, or I can choose to go under full general anesthesia -- which would be best?Does anyone know if Dr. Grubb or someone else has published anything on surgery prep and post-op suggestions for those with POTS? It would be great to have an official document to bring to the anesthesiologist. If not, then I'll gladly take anyone's tips and suggestions to help alleviate any possible complications?Thanks, Gena Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
