  • ablation/Anaesthetic

    Hi
    I am going for my alcohol ablation on April 5 but prior to it I have to go to an appointment with the anaestheologist? Has anyone had an ablation where they put you to sleep?

    I don't think they put you to sleep for the alc ablation - they want you do certain things like holding your breath (or something like that) when they drop the alcohol. Atleast that is how it used to be. They do adminsiter morphine for the pain so that should reduce it quite a bit.

      That's my question! You are suppose to be awake but I'm going to be put to sleep. I'm worried that something will go wrong. I'm going to ask my doctor about this I was just wondering if anyone else has had an ablation done this way.

        well ---why are they putting you to sleep and do they have to and if you don't want them to, are they insisting and why don't you just make them do it the other way?

          Tammy, Did they tell you they would put you to sleep? Meeting with the anesthesiologist doesn't necessarily mean you will be put to sleep. That is the person who will manage the meds to be sure you are comfortable - pain meds, sedation, etc. Besides that, this is the person who is responsible to make sure your breathing is adequate should there be a problem. You don't plan on having problems, but you must always be prepared just in case. Linda
