I have to have GA for oral surgery on June 27th I have read so many horror stories that GA and oral surgery is dangerous I am very scared of this I have had GA 2 years ago did fine except for a little nausea I had gall bladder surgery than I have also been on oxycodone 10/650 for 2 months for the pain I am having in my mouth before I that I have been on hydrocodone 10/325 for other health problems is that going to cause any problems with GA thanks for your quick response really scared
sort by best latest
I do have high blood I am on a medication to control it and a rapid heart beat its called lopresssor my Bp was 151/109 do you think that is because of stress and if I don't get it down will they cancel my surgery sorry to bother you again thanks
That's high and you would risk being canceled. It could be from stress, but would be best to be checked out by your doc. You might even need an EKG just to check the heart rate and rhythm. Lopressor is a good med, but might need to be adjusted.
Yeah I was at the doctor she wants me to start taking 2 50 milligrams a day instead of 1 a day thanks so much for your time
Sounds like you are getting the appropriate pre-op care! That's the best thing you can do so feel reassured that your issues are being addressed. As an anesthesia doc, I can tell you that is exactly what I like to see! Good luck!
