Had to go to hospital today for a pre op assessment regarding a small op on my big toe.
After running through the usual medical questions, the nurse said that as I was on both of these drugs the anaesthetist might be unhappy putting me to sleep as the thyroid might go nuts and it could be potentially dangerous. Then I might have to have op after my own doc has taken me off the carbimazole (prob Sept).
The consultant thought it should be alright as they can do a different injection into the spine?
Obviously I am a bit concerned and I wont have the op unless its reasonably safe.
I just wanted to know what the average is to stay on block and replace? I have been on carbimazole since dec 2011 and on both since april 2012 when I went underactive.
Any comments appreciated
