    Hi, sorry for any inconvenience if I'm posting this in the wrong forum. I wasn't sure where to put it.

    I'm due to have major surgery before the end of the year, and I'm not sure what to do. If you've read my other messages you may rememer I have autism (studies say 98% chance of having methylation defects) and am symptomatic of many SNP defects. Therefore, for me nitrous oxide is a no-no (bad pun, I know lol).

    Has anyone here had surgery with an alternative anesthetic? I've heard Propofol can be used, however it is made from soybean oil which is estrogenic and as I have PCOS I have been advised to avoid soy and its derivatives. Sevoflurane is another; has anyone had that?

    Thanks :)
