What is the procedure for hydrocele operation?

I am having a hydrocele operation next week and am curious about breathing tubes, LMA's. Once under anesthesia, will a tube be inserted down my throat to help me breathe? I am 48 years old, this is the second time I am having this operation. I am in good health, I am 5'10",. approx 175 lbs.

Hello,

The breathing tube commonly not inserted while giving spinal or general anesthesia.

In hydrocele like operation usually there is not need for respiration through tube.

The tube breathing needed only when there is complication in operation or supportive breathing needed.

You can discuss regarding that in detail with your anesthesiologist.

Hope I have answered your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
