Sorry, Siri. I was thinking it was a f/u after having a polyp removed during a colonoscopy.
So, this woman is having a f/u polypectomy?
This is an elective procedure.
So, the question is, is this to potentially save her life? Or, is it strictly elective and not really a risk of Ca?
If the latter, the procedure can wait, if she is pregnant.
If the former, does not matter if she is pregnant or not, the procedure must be performed.
Now, the ULTIMATE decision should be made by the phisician and the woman.
I would say, no, it is not the RN/NM place to refuse the sedation based on the fact the woman MAY
back out of the termination.
