Getting my wisdom teeth removed in 12 days!
Sunday, August 12, 2007

Yeah, I'm getting my wisdom teeth removed in twelve days. I chose a local anesthic, which means, I'll be 100% awake for the whole thing, am I stupid or can I handle what will be dished out?!

HUGS just make sure you lay in supplies ( Ice cream, mashed potatoes, etc) and Hope it goes well for you!!

I hate to say it, but I would not want to be awake for that, so yeah you might be stupid. I actually woke up a couple times while mine were being dug out, and I'm pretty sure I started to cry. It's all a bit of a blur, but I think there were tears for a couple seconds until they got me put under again.
Might I unofficially and soley from my own experience recommend arnica for afterwards? If you have any health stores in your area it should be in the remedies section in a tube a little bigger than your pinky. You're supposed to let a little of it disolve under your tongue, and I have to say that I healed extremely well after taking it (and that's coming from the surgeon, not just me) Am I just a fast healer? Well, not so much, actually.
Anyways, best of luck! It's not a fun time no matter what. I was swollen and unable to talk right for nearly five days, and barely functional for a couple days after that. It didn't hurt all that bad for me, I didn't need any of the painkillers they gave me, but I was swollen and it sucked. And then there were the holes in my gums for awhile that would get food stuck in them. Pain in the ass.
Sorry! Will stop babbling now!
