I am going to have laproscopic surgery (in upper abdomen) very soon. I am worried about anaesthesia. I would like to get general anaesthesia. Can I choose this? I mean are they going to ask me what I want.

I think that for upper abdominal laprascopic surgery the choice of anaesthesia is limited to general anaesthesia, with muscle paralysis, tracheal intubations and intermittent positive pressure ventilation. Epidural has been used (as I know) for outpatient gynecological laparoscopic procedures and local or regional anaesthetic techniques have not been reported for laparoscopic cholecystectomy or other upper abdominal surgical procedures except in patients with cystic fibrosis.
