My 13 mo. old ds has a skin tag on his ear, which we think we would like to have removed. I consulted the doctor (ENT) today about it and she said it would require general anesthesia. She told me it is very safe and he would be recovered by the next day (it is an outpatient procedure). She said we could have this done anytime, now or years from now. She made it sound like general anesthesia was perfectly safe and nothing to worry about. However on these boards I have heard people try to avoid it. I don't know what the down side is. Can anyone point me in a good direction to read up on this? What are the risks of general anesthesia for a toddler? Thanks!
