anysia: (Shaman/Medicine Woman)
Had a phone call from the anesthesiologist as she wanted a full run down of my medical history (or as near as I can fill her in on) and for what will be happening on Monday.

It seems I will be given an epidural, and then general, as a way to cut back on the amount of general to be used. By keeping me numb from lower back down, the less general anesthesia is needed, and it will clear the system faster for a quicker recovery.

I will also be given an arterial jab as a better way to keep an eye on oxygenation and to keep an eye on my blood pressure.

This is the first time I have had to have major surgery.... and I have no problem admitting I'm scared.
