Going in for an operation?


#1

Hi I am going in for a spinal operation on 6th May and was wondering if the injection would be safe to get? I ideally don’t want to tell my doctors that I’m on it as I don’t want my parents to find out @Dr_Paula

Hello @kkkk

Yes the guidelines say that even for ‘major surgery with prolonged immobilisation’ that the benefits of having the infection outweigh the risks.

So this should be fine. Do tell the doctor who prescribes it that you are having surgery.

Many thanks
