So yesterday we got the appointment for our 15 1/2 month old ds to have his MRI scan under general anaesthetic on the 22nd of May. I understand they need to try to find out whats causing his seizures. We had been hoping they may do it under sedation but they said as the test lasts for over 1 hour they need to do a general anaesthetic.
I'm feeling pretty worried of letting him have the test as feel it's quite risky for him to have a general anaesthetic sad
He needs to fast from 7am and we need to get to the hospital by 11.30am.
Can anyone share their experiences of their child having a general anaesthetic and how they coped? What did your child wear at the hospital?
Also how long did your child need to stay? Ds is down as a day patient
Any advice would be great smile
