Question Gallbladder surgery

Anybody with muscular dystrophy had their gallbladder removed?
How did you tolerate general anaesthetic? Are there any other options?

Re: Gallbladder surgery

Yes i had a full open removal due to complications unrelated to my FSHD. Make sure when you meet the anesthesiologist you are very very clear about what you have. Tell them exactly what type. There are certain ones that work ok for people like us and other can be desasterous. But your anesthesiologist will know as long as they are clearly aware of your exact illness. During the time leading up to complications of my gallbladder i was at several different hospitals having ERCP's to try to get out compacted stones so i was put out 4 times just trying to get the stones before the actual surgery. You will be weak waking up and quite disorientated but it will be ok. I will be praying for you

I was born with OPMD until it manifested in my 40's. I have had my GB out before the symptoms appeared. However, I am sure it can be done by spinal block, and give you some sleepy drugs the way they do back injections. But, check with the Doctor and the Anethesiologist first.
