Surgery With PH

Surgery With PH

Has anyone every had to under go a surgery while having PH? I ask because I may need to have a hysterectomy and I am already afraid of any surgery. Do not like being put under at all. And with already existing breathing issues and heart palpitations it does not calm my fears.

I have had general anesthesia twice with PH and I was told I might have a hard time coming of. I did fine! but I will say each person is different. Even when you are healthy there is always a risk. Make sure you are cleared by your Pulmonoligst and Cardiogist and talk to the anesthestist about your fears.

I have had three. The anesthesiologist had to adjust how far he took me under. However, I did have a surgeon refuse to do surgery.

Psmith my doctor told me it would have to be a life threatening situation for me to have general anesthesia.

Better check with the Dr treating you for your disease. My Dr said with everything I have, I am never to be put to sleep. It would kill me. But others have with no problems. Ask your Dr.

Tb fears and questions come with life totally normal. Starting from your primary doc ending to your pulmonary doc you need to write everything down and have a conversation with them. They will be the best to lead you but no better leader than God. I pray that everything goes well for you. 💕🙏🏻
