Hi Marie L,
I am also a female 57yrs, and have been trying to manage my Bipolar since my very early years. I like you, had surgery and because it was emergency surgery, no one had my medical records. At that time I was taking Lithium, the outcome was sever infection which took over 8mos to counteract. I appreciate your candor with your disclosure, because up until now (15 years later) I was only told the infection was due to the nature of the surgery (being emergency). Which I concluded, it was my fault for the outcome. I always thought the surgeons simplistic reasoning for the infection was a means by which to not have to fully disclaim the actual Reason = Lithium in my blood stream. I required another surgery for a broken arm (six places), which was postpone for several weeks. Now it makes sence for the postponement, he wanted to make sure the Lithium was out of my blood prior. This other surgery went off without a hitch. When and were possible, I highly recommend people to wear Medic Alert Bracelets, listing the medications you are taking. Thanks for listening.
Marie L on Jun, 20, 2012:
I am a 54-year-old Caucasian woman who recently underwent removal of a benign brain tumor via general anesthetic. Although I advised the anesthesia staff that I had been taking lithium for about 30 years, at the time of my surgery, I didn't know that lithium should be discontinued at least 72 hours to two weeks before surgery to avoid dehydration and resulting diabetes insipidis (abnormal urination)which is known to cause blindness. After my surgery, I was unable to be awakened and went into a "metabolic encephalopathy" for about three weeks. When I woke up, I was blind in my right eye. According to my neurosurgeon, the reason for the coma was due to lithium being in my system. As a result, I have total, irreversible blindness in my right eye. My surgeon's position is that it was not from the surgery and, instead, the medical staff had to wait until the lithium was flushed out of my body. This NEVER should have happened. My sodium levels sky-rocketed along with my blood pressure and blood sugar. If I would have known all of this before surgery, I would not have taken my lithium for the prescribed amount of time and definitely would have advised the doctor and medical staff accordingly. If you are taking lithium and have a general anesthesia scheduled, be sure to advise your surgeon and the anesthesia staff that you want to discontinue lithium until after the surgery when your vital signs are stable. Good luck to you.
