Hi.. Anaesthetic drugs can lead to dangerous complication in the presence of breathing difficulties with low oxygen saturation.... That may be the reason why surgical treatment has been deferred till now.. You may have to consult a specialist at a multi speciality hospital and take his opinion on when the surgical treatment may be feasible..
