Question
Posted : May 25, 2011
I am a 29 year old lady who has a shark dive booked in this country for end of June, unfortunately I am booked in for a small op under general anaesthetic two weeks previous. Should I continue with the dive.

Thanks for the query.

The general anaesthetic will have worn off within a few days so you should be fine after 2 weeks. I presume that the "small op" does not involve anything that might endanger your underwater safety?
