I am scheduled to have a relatively minor surgical procedure. It should take around 30 to 45 mins but will involve a general anaesthetic. The question is will I be able to keep my pump running during the procedure? I use an Animas Vibe plus a Dexcom G4 CGM.
I could ask my surgical team but I suspect that they do not have a lot of experience of operating on insulin pumpers and my experience with the medical profession is that it is always better to be fully informed. Anyone here had similar sorts of procedures done? If so what did you do with your pumps?
