I am brittle asthmatic, steroid dependent, use nebs and oxygen at home, s/c when needed...
I am having an op in October, had a good app with the anaesthetist but feel let down by my asthma consultant... the last few apps with him have not been that productive or reassuring.
Anaesthetist suggested things to do before and what to expect after. Under a general, they can look after my lungs with meds and also he suggested IV magnesium. Also HDU or even ITU bed after as once out of the anaesthetic, the lungs can go splat etc.
Not really been told what to do about Steroid cover either. I have had a chat with a few friends who have had GAs some were OK with the good support, others not so good after etc...
Any sensible advice please? I am assuming everything is going to go OK, and want it to, with the right support.
