Need advice please. I suffer with COPD and Bronchiectasis and am on Oxygen 24/7. I am shortly due to have my first cataract operation, hopefully with just drops to numb the eye after which I have to be able to lay completely flat for 20 minutes. Other options are to be sedated or have a full general anesthetic both of which I don't believe are suitable options due to my lung condition.
Has anybody else on oxygen managed to lay flat for the 20 minutes without any problem.
