I took today off of work for some appointments. One of them was a dentist appointment. My fear of what they would tell me came true. I will be getting out my wisdom teeth because they have started to bother me and are impacted. When I talked to my dentist about this she asked, “Now, would you like to be put to sleep while this is done?” I looked at her like she was CRAZY and replied, “Uhhh ya…I do…definitely.” She just laughed and put in a referral for me to an oral surgeon. There is NO way I want to be awake for that.
I am planning on scheduling this operation for Christmas break so that I have time to heal….and I am a Grinch this year anyways, so why not be in pain for the holidays? Then I have an excuse to lay in bed all day!
I already have some anxiety about this because I have never been sedated before. This will be the first “surgery” I have. But, I guess I would rather have this done than have to wear braces again, or deal with this pain anymore.
