My daughter had a test done this Wednesday and is currently scheduled for surgery next Wednesday! The doctor has spoke with the anesthesiologist and he/she said to just give her her normal adrenal supplement dose in the morning before undergoing the procedure. She should only be under general anesthesia for 10 to 15 minutes but I am concerned that her normal daily dose is not enough for the trauma of undergoing a surgery since she is only 6 years old and has had prior central sleep apnea issues! I do not know how familiar the hospital staff is with insufficient adrenal functions especially in children! It is hard as a parent to determine when the children are under stress and if and when they would need an adjustment to their daily dosage. I am unsure if I should trust the hospital or if I should give her a larger dose before surgery. If anyone has any recommendations please let me know!
