Thread: I need general anaesthetic!

  1. #1

    I need general anaesthetic!

    I have had GA before once to have a hole in my heart repaired. I'm generally healthy...I suffer from hemeplegic migraines and palpitations. I need a GA for an hour long procedure and I'm terrified I won't wake up and see my kids ever again...I know I'm being daft but I need someone to tell me to snap out of it!! So frustrated with myself!

    General anaesthetic is the safest it's ever been and the amount of serious complications or deaths relating to it is vanishingly small. It's not worth worrying about.

    Can understand your worry about not waking up, which is a very common fear, but as Server says, GA is not only now extremely safe but you are monitored very closely too. You will be fine.

    I had this same fear last September when I was put under and honestly it seemed like it was over in a blink of an eye. The chances are so slim like literally almost non-existent for a person in good health! Even not so good of health it is still so rare! You will do great!
