Re: Cardiomyopathy and anesthesia?
You really need to consult with your cardiologist about any risks for you associated with cardiomyopathy and having a general anaesthetic. Much depends on the nature and extent of your cardiomyopathy, and any complications you have from this heart muscle disorder (atrial fibrillation,heart failure, impaired diastolic function for example). The doctors doing the egg retrieval procedure, especially the anaethetist, would have to be aware of your cardiomyopathy, ideally liaising with your cardiologist. So you will have to have (at least) the advise of your cardiologist.Good Luck and stop worrying - see a cardiologist instead, or speak with the anaethetist asap.
