ME/CFS and anaesthesia (myalgic encephalomyelitis or encephalopathy/chronic fatigue syndrome)

Published by Simon Lawrence on

This resource aims to provide people with ME/CFS who need to have an anaesthetic or sedation with information about what they might expect at the different stages of the surgical journey, and what they can do to prepare, in collaboration with their healthcare teams. It has been produced in collaboration with people with ME/CFS who have shared their experiences of having an anaesthetic with us. Their input has helped us identify the most common questions and concerns that people with ME/CFS may have about having surgery.This resource may also be helpful to people who are affected by long COVID, because some of the symptoms associated with these conditions are similar to those experienced by people with ME/CFS.Continues at:
