Worried about general anesthesia during tummy tuck
- San Antonio, Texas
- 4 years ago
I'm having a full tummy tuck on May 3rd. My surgery is going to be 6 hours long for a combines tummy tuck and lipo.I'm freaking out to say the least. My biggest concern is what if I don't wake up...I'm a 25 year old female no health issues and only on birth control. I've lost 63lbs and currently weigh 178, I'm 5'6" and I walk/jog 5-10 miles a day. Am I a good candidate for general anesthesia?
