Local seems much less of a problem than a general.
Here's some notes I filed a year or so back, that may be useful to take with you.
Good luck http://images.wolfpk.com/parkinsonsr...nformation.pdf
PD & SURGERY:
1. See note above regarding stopping Eldepryl/selegiline two weeks prior to surgery.
2. There should be no reason to skip PD medications prior to surgery even if directions are NPO
(nothing by mouth) for 6-10 hours prior to surgery. Discuss with surgeon or anesthesiologist.
3. Restart PD medications (except eldepryl) as soon as possible after surgery even if NPO;
discuss with surgeon.
4. Be aware that PD patients have a lower threshold response to analgesics (sedation/pain
medications) and could experience hallucinations; however, this is not a contraindication
(reason to avoid) their administration.
Other medications which may worsen Parkinsonian symptoms and should not, in general, be
prescribed for a person with PD include:
NEUROLEPTICS GI / ANTI-NAUSEA RX
Haloperidol (Haldol®) metoclopramide (Reglan®)
Chlorpromazine (Thorazine®) prochlorperazine (Compazine®)
Thioridazine (Mellaril®) trimethobenzamide (Tigan®)
Perpenazine and amitriptyline (Triavil®)
This is an excellent document to have available in case you land in the hospital - in fact take extra copies as most MD/RN know so little about PD.
