13:47 - so...

Previous Entry Share Flag Next Entry

Comming up on the 16th of Jan, I will actually pay someone to inflict horrendous ammounts of pain on me that will last for many, many days to follow. I plan on being both psychologically and physically scarred for the rest of my life after this event. Yes, the day has come for me to get my wisdom teeth pulled. They were content to sit nice and calm for most of my life, but it seems that they have recently come of the opinion that they would like to make their presence known.

The thing is, though, I need to know if there is anyone who'd be willing to take a few hours off from work that morning to help me get through this ordeal.

I would if I could. I almost had that day off - I got the 17th off instead (as I'll be working 12 days straight before then, I'm getting a bit of a weekend.)

You taking some time off afterwards to recover?

Question: are you going ot be asleep or awake for the process?

you can't anyway. It has to be someone with a car to drive me home.

I will request they knock my happy ass out cold for the entire process, and most of the following week if it is at all possible or reasonable. I've heard about the pain this procedure can include, and I want to be as far from it as possible.

Understandable. The novacaine wore off in the middle of my operation.

A drill in the gums hurts.

And I could steal a car for ya, man. But no, I can't really drive it ;)

awwwww, it's not that bad. I stayed awake for mine. The guy just took a big pair of dentist pliers and yanked back and forth on my teeth until they came out. Quite primitive.

YIKES! yeah, see, there's *NO WAY* I'm staying awake through something like that. I don't do pain very well.

Well wishes with some hope...

You know, it’s sad that I almost never hear about good experience of having wisdom teeth pulled, or root canals. I have had both done, by really good doctors/dentists, and I must say I was terrified both times. I feel so totally lucky that neither of those experiences end up being as bad as their reputations.

As a matter of fact, both my cousin and I ended up going to the same oral surgeon (Dr. Richard Moorhouse) to have our wisdom teeth pulled, and we both had really good experiences with him. I slept through mine, and got a week’s worth of vicodine. I took the pain kills for about the first half of the week and overall had a very minimal amount of pain.

I hope everything goes well for you, and that your experience is as painless as mine was.
