Is it safe to have surgery?

From: Krissy


My question is fairly simple..Is it safe to have surgery when you have vaso-vagal?I faint almost every time I either cut myself a tiny bit,when they take blood and about 10 years ago after simple hand surgery I woke up and had a haert monitor on..I had a local and must of passed out..I have passed out several times in the doctors office and each time they say that my blood pressure was incredibly low.Anybody ever have this fear or anything happen when you had surgery?And yes I have been diagnosed with vaso-vagal. Get back to me..Thanks!
