Re: Vaso-Vagal episode

From: David Cooley


Well, went back in yesterday to have the surgery that was postponed by the VV episode... after telling the pre-op nurse why it happened last week (same nurse, btw), she laid me back, kept me talking and I never even knew that she had inserted the IV... they rolled me into surgery at 11:50am, and next thing I knew it was 3pm and I was in recovery... no problems at all this time.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
