Preparing for Surgery – Anesthesia Warning

General anesthesia can have debilitating effects on some people with chronic fatigue syndrome. In general patients are recommended to avoid general anesthesia when possible.  Several doctors have produced documents outlining their recommendations for anesthesia and the New Jersey CFS Association has produced a card you can download and print out. (Laminating the card appears to give the recommendations more heft with hospital personnel.)
