I am sorry but this post is important to people going to surgery it is about flexor spasms impacting surgery soon. Please, let's talk mg other places, it is off topic here and making this thread useless for its purpose, but I agree it is ivery mportant material, just not here, now.
Mark I has a spasm right on the OR table when they hit me with that ice cold scrub to clean the operative area....and they tied my legs down so I would not trash the operative field, but I knew, cause I've had surgery before, that the drugs they give you which are muscle relaxants will cut them out once they hit you with that and sure enough that was true. My legs stayed nice and quiet and did not budge during surgery.
You won't be eating anything from midnight the night before so won't take any pills in the morining before surgery, you'll need to talk with the doc about all of this too, it may impact the choice of anesthesia for you ie some may be better muscle relaxants than others.
I know you wouldn't do this but just for the general information, people should not try to self medicate you don't want an interaction between some antispasm med and the anesthesia/twilight sleep they do.
I'm not offering medical advice, I am just a patient too! Talk to your doctor about what is best for you...
