Has anyone on the board had to go under anaesthesia who also has systemic sclerosis with lung disease? I am wondering how risky it is.

Have not been under general anaesthesia, but have been under 'twilight' the only problem I had was them finding a vein. If your anesthesiologist knows ahead of time, he/she can compensate. Have you had any pulmonary tests done? If so, it wouldn't hurt for your doctor to get them the results.


Hope you never have to 'go under' it's not fun. Personally, I like the twilight but that is only used for limited out-patient. They say you talk alot under general- wish I could have a tape recorder with me if I ever need to!


Wish I could give you more help, but I'm sending good vibes your way!
