Hi all. This is my first post but would like some advice if anyone can give me it that is.
I have fibro, got diagnosed around 3 plus years ago (not sure of exact time frame as have so many other health issues going on and all diagnosed within the last 10 years). I also have B12 and vit D deficiency, folate deficiency on and off, holmes adues syndrome with left tonic pupil and no deep tendon reflexes at all, allergic rhinitis, arthritis in both knees and left foot, asthma, polymyalgia, dermoid cyst (size of a golf ball) on my right ovary.
The reason im posting is that at some point i have to have the dermoid cyst removed (via keyhole surgery). The last time i see the gynaecologist he said that as long as i could deal with the pain they would like to leave it a bit longer as they have to get it all as if they dont it will grow back and the bigger it is the better chance they have at getting it all. I have not seen my gynaecologist for over 3 years and had not been diagnosed with fibro at that point. I keep putting it off as when i have spoke to several different gps at my surgery and spoken to them about having this operation i have stressed my worry of fibro and anaesthetic and none of them have said "oh its ok you have nothing to worry about anaesthetic is ok with fibro" but instead i get "i know where your coming from and we have no answer for your worries". I have decided that instead of just having the detmoid cyst removed i want them to remove that ovary so that it has no chance of growing back again and i then do not have to go u der the knife again. But i have to talk to the gynaecologist about that.
Has anyone had surgery where they have had general anaesthetic (knocked out totally lol) and how did it go?
Or if anyone can advise on how anaesthetic is with fibro?
