CFS and having surgery/giving blood
 
For a random question..

I have CFS and was wondering, if I (or any person) had to end up having surgery (for whatever reason) would I be more prone to infection?Have a longer recovery time? Be at greater risk for complication from anesthesia?
Also, is there any research about people with CFS giving blood/donating organs? (no, I am not planning on doing either! but was wondering anyways).

I recently had a hysterectomy end of June. I did fine with the surgery. No increased risk of infection or anything. I didn't have problems until a month or two after when I started getting sicker because of the Premarin I was on making yeast worse and just the whole trauma of the surgery. I did not rest enough afterwards. I cannot stress how important resting is afterwards and taking things slow even when you start getting your energy back. I still haven't learned to listen to my body after 10 years of this junk.

I wondered the same, recently...decided it would not be wise for me to be a donor of blood, bc of the cellular blood level viruses, along with the symptoms showing adrenal dysfunction, CNS dysfunction, kidney and liver issues, and immune system issues, tho, I did put on my CDL organ donor years ago, I'm thinking at this point in my life, I should change my mind, this would pass on th the person it was donated to. uvm 'good question'
