I have pseudocholinesterase deficiency (BCHE gene), but my wife does not. My wife may need/strongly desire an epidural for our next child. Is this safe for a fetus which may possibly have the same condition as me? If not, then what is a safe alternative?
One specific drug I'm concerned about is bupivacine, which, I read affects me more powerfully than the typical person.
I have read the information from 23 and me about this condition. I have read "Pseudocholinesterase Deficiency: A Comprehensive Review of Genetic, Acquired and Drug Influences". None of the articles I have read with pregnancy being mentioning dealt with this condition except to mention that pregnancy often leads to a acquired deficiency.
