Child with Gilbert's syndrome scheduled for adenotomy. Is general anesthesia acceptable in this case?

My 6 y.o. son is posted for an operation (adenotomy) the day after tomorrow. The operations of this kind are only held under general anesthesia . It seems that our doctors underestimate the fact that the boy has (genetically confirmed) Gilbert s syndrome . The question is whether or not general anesthesia is acceptable in the case of Gilbert s syndrome? And if so then what medication should be used and what should be avoided?

General Surgeon 's  Response

Hi and welcome to HCM.
it is acceptable and there is no any contraindication for it and it is much easier for heim to have general anashesia. gilberts is usually disorder that is only mildly affecting liver enzymes and this is not problematic for surgery at all unless there is serious liver damage which is rarely seen. so just follow doctors recommendations and dont worry.
Thanks for the query. Regards
