Re: Bad Heart And Anesthesia

Coco, If the anesthesiologist is good they will not be willing to put anyone under unless the tests look good. But saying that, I was operated on this past summer for gallbladder. Developed a large hernia from the surgery, went to another doctor and hospital to have hernia fixed, anesthesiologist at that hospital would not put me under. Ran more tests including heartcath. They did triple bypass in Sept. Finally had hernia fixed in late November. Feel very fortunate for that second anesthesiologist!!!

Guess what I would tell you is that you need to make sure all the proper tests are done, not just EKG.
