If you are going to go local, I would take a xanax or some benzo for anxiety before just make sure it doesn't interact with the anethesia. Good luck!!

I'll let everyone know how it went afterwards.

.it triggered panic attacks in him that he still gets when he feels confined in a small space, like with his seat belt on in an airplane etc...the doctor stated (if im not mistaken) that the type of anesthetic used is actually an LSD derivative..im guessin it's more like Ketamine or somethin
.I do not think that it is wise to take this, youd probably go into hell, at least for the duration of the "trip"...cant tell you how youd feel after though...regular anesthetic will be fine though, ive been under once and nothing happened, so have others here

I read an article in Time magazine yesterday (the Feb 13 issue), that said a study found a correlation between young children (age 2 and younger) who had had multiple surgeries developing ADHD later in life more than children who had not had multiple operations. Now, it said they believed this has to do with the brain of a 2 year old not yet being wired completely, and that the anesthesia interfered with that growth, but still. I am still scared to get anesthesia, because who says my brain is not growing in a similar manner, where instead of initial growth, mine is rewiring and reparing? I have no clue if this is actually happening (though I do think it is) but still, it's scary.
But, like David said, if you must have general anesthesia, there isn't really hard evidence yet either way that it will affect your HPPD or not.

Money. Remember: the doctor works for you, not the other way around. You tell him how it's going to be when it comes to the choices that are up to you. Don't let them bully you.
