There are going to be times when the Addisonian will need to undergo surgical procedures and there are guidelines which should be followed. The link I am enclosing is a set of guidelines in PDF format which may be printed out and taken to your doctor, hospital or dentist before you undergo the procedure. It can be much more reasurring to know that the technicians, etc. will know what is needed to keep an Addisonian stable and out of crisis, both during and after the surgery. Never hesitate to be certain that these guidelines are followed to your satisfaction and to the extent neccessary for your safety. It is your life...be proactive in your care. It is important that you know what is needed and insist it is carried out.
