panic attacks before surgery

Anxiety sufferers can have more anxiety before surgery. It is no surprise that many agoraphobia patients typically go into the theatre in a state of panic.

about all that can be done is to tell the anesthetic doc that you are a panic attack sufferer and ask for a big premed before they move you, this should have you semi conscious, also tell him what benzos and other meds you have taken
