Just wondering what kind of anesthesia was used on anyone out there that had either one of the these surgeries??? My hubby will probably need surgery for both of these , but has airway trouble and it is very dangerous to sedate or try to give him general anesthesia. Was hoping maybe a regional or nerve block could be used and be able to keep him comfy.
I had general because they told me if they did a nerve block or local they would have to stick a needle in the nerve to see if it was deadened enough! YIKES! Put me out! And I have asthma but it was no big deal.
