Re: Vaso-Vegal and Surgery

Pat I do vagally (no pun intended) remember reading something concerning NCS and anesthesia. I wish I could remember better what I read, but maybe if you search the internet you'll find something. Do be sure that not only the doctor, but the anesthesiologist knows about this. It will probably require her being monitored for a while longer after the surgery. I'll look through my bookmarks and see if I kept the site on my computer. You also might contacts NDRF (national dysautonomia research foundation). There number (in MN) is 651-267-0525. You could probably contact them by email from their website. Maggie
