Hi there I am new to the community and my situation is in April I went into anaphylactic shock when I went for a routine laparoscopy.I suffered acute Bronchospasm and cardiovascular collapse. My surgery did not go ahead and I have been for general allergy testing and specific drug testing since. The anaesthetist suspected that Rocuronium was the culprit - a muscle relaxant. After the drug test he confirmed that the rocuronium did cause a reaction. I am due to see my surgeon again. I am a little bit concerned and worried about going for the laparoscopy. Wondering if anyone has been through anything similar?
New here allergy to rocuronium: Hi there I am... - USAnaphylaxis
I was due to have my surgery next week. It now may not happen. The skin prick test I had were positive for allergy to rocuronium however the blood tests for all anaesthetic drugs were negative including rocuronium. This is delaying things further although I do think it's better to be 100% sure it just means another month of pain and waiting.
