I do have a reactive airway and mild to moderate asthma which acted up during a prior surgery, but luckily it was brought under control. Had a couple of other surgeries without issue. I have been told there is a less chance of infection if the surgery is done in two days ...because if done in 1 day the operating room doors need to open to bring in second surgical table to flip me over.
I have heard differing opinions regarding which is best regarding anesthesia or reactive airway complications. I really want to wake up and have it over with, but if it's safer to have the procedure in two days then thats what I will do. I am a bit worried that if it's a 2 day procedure and I have issues with reactive airway then the fusion will be incomplete and not supported by the posterior hardware.
Maybe I should also get an opinion from an asthma doctor because reactive airway triggers an asthma episode. Thanks.
