If I have a sulfur allergy can a product that contains sulfur hexafluoride be used on me?

I am scheduled for macular hole surgery in June and I am allergic to sulfur drugs. I just read that the gas used in my surgery is usually sulfur hexafluoride.
Is it dangerous for me to have that gas during my surgery?

Are you allergic to sulfa, or sulfur?

There is a difference, and someone allergic to one might not be allergic to the other.

For example, I am allergic to sulfa drugs, such as Bactrim, an antibiotic which contains sulfamethoxazole, but I am not allergic to sulfur overall, I can eat egg yolks, and etc. without a problem.

Maggie, the best suggestion I can make for you is to tell them all of your allergies, so they know what they shouldn't use during your surgery.
