Hi there. I'm new to this community. I've just been referred to a Pulmonary-Hypertension consultant by my Cardiologist as my latest Echocardiogram says I have "intermediate probability of pulmonary hypertension", along with "moderate mitral valve regurgitation".
My question relates to General Anaesthetics (GAs). Wanted to hear anyone's experiences/views of having GAs with Pulmonary-Hypertension. I've heard that having PH makes GAs more risky?
I was due to have 2 GA-operations this year (one for a Total Knee Replacement and one for Endoscopic Sinus Surgery), but do you think the hospitals will let me go ahead with both surgeries this year even if I do turn out to have Pulmonary-Hypertension? (And would they need to leave more of a gap between the 2 GAs for PH patients?)
Thank you in advance.
