In brief: General health

If you do not have other medical issues or family history of problems with anesthesia, general anesthesia considered very safe if done by anesthesiologist or supervised by one.
Your other option is regional anesthesia. You should discuss your all medical issues with your anesthesia provider , who will review your anesthetic plan with you.
