Does anyone have information or could let me know where I could find information where I could find out about anesthesia that is better suited for vestibular patients? I have to have surgery soon and need advice soon about anesthesia that is better suited for people with vestibular issues. My doctor told me tetracycline and floxan are not good but need advice for anesthesia. Thank you for your help and insights.

Hi, Although I don’t know the particular name of the drug that was used on a vestibular patient that I know just went through surgery. However I did advocate for her and told her to call or talk to the doctors that are administering the drugs during your surgery. She just reported that her surgery went well and her dizziness was minimized by asked her doctors questions prior to her procedure. So my advise is to call your doctors and let them know your concerns and be very honest about any fears or concerns. Wishing you all the best on your procedures.

Hi Rebekah,

I unfortunately do not remember what anesthesia was used when I had my gallbladder out last year but I can tell you that I did not suffer any side effects from it. I was worried also. I actually put it off for almost a year before I could wait no longer. I talked to the anesthesiologist before hand per my surgeons advice. She was very sympathetic and said she would choose what she thought would be best. I had visions of waking up with severe vertigo but that did not happen.  It went very smoothly. I was afraid to take pain medicine (I’m terrified of talking any meds). Everything went very smoothly. I wish you all the best.
