Left Ovarian Cyst Surgery?
Hello Doctor for me general anesthesia or local anesthesia, because Ayu has never been hospitalized and has never had major surgery. I am a bit panicked for everything, but insha Allah, I have to prepare myself mentally for this. I want to hear the doctor’s advice. Thank you doctor.
Hello Ayu, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Surgical removal of cysts (cystectomy) by laparotomy can use general anesthesia (general anesthesia) or spinal anesthesia (regional anesthesia). Both have their own advantages and disadvantages. The following are some of the advantages and disadvantages of general anesthesia:
You will not feel anything during the operation You will not remember the events during the operation at all The doctor has better control of your airway, breathing, and circulation Can be used for long operations and can adjust if the operation has to be prolonged due to certain complications. side effects such as nausea, vomiting, headache, chills are smaller than regional anesthesia.
Has a risk of systemic side effects such as heart infarction (death of heart muscle cells), stroke, and malignant hyperthermia (the body becomes so hot that it can be dangerous). This risk can vary depending on the health condition of each patient as well as the presence or absence of certain genetic disorders in the patient.
Some of the advantages and disadvantages of regional anesthesia:
Less risk of systemic side effects such as heart infarction, stroke, and malignant hyperthermia. Surgery time is usually shorter
You will be aware throughout the operation. Some people prefer this condition because they can find out what happened during the operation, but most people feel psychological trauma because they know what to do during the operation. The risk of side effects such as nausea, vomiting, headaches, chills is very high. You will lose control of your bowel movements for a while.
It's a good idea to also more clearly ask the doctor who treats you and the anesthetist who will accompany you during the operation to find out more clearly what anesthetic is best for you.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
