    What an experience. I've never had a surgery before so I was unsure of what to expect going in.
    My wife came with me and kept me company during the process. They inserted an IV into my arm, which was no big deal since I've donated blood before. However, it got really trippy because after I felt a little warm, I woke up back at home. I have ABSOLUTELY no idea what happened in between. My Wife says I kept on asking the same questions repeatedly, and they brought me out in a wheelchair to her car.
    I never knew anesthetic could mess you up that much. wild.
    Now I'm just chilling in bed with a puffy and sore mouth. It feels like I have a bunch of cotton balls stuck in the back of my mouth. I'll be on quarters for the next three days, and then my normal three day weekend starts up.
    Pudding and Ice Cream here I come!

    Yeah, depending on the conditions they give you some hella drugs for the surgery. Think of it as your chance for a relatively safe, doctor-monitored high.

    Sleep a lot, change the gauze often, and keep those holes where the teeth used to be as clean as possible for the next couple of days and you'll be fine.

    i was put out. One of my wisdon teeth was growing horizontally and not vertically so the top of the tooth was the wrong way so they had to cut into the gums and go it and take it out and remove 2 more. I only had 3 wisdom teeth.

    but samething, i remember an IV or it was a mask that they used, and i asked how long will it take it take effect? then next i know i am in the car on the way home.

    i threw up once or twice from swallowing too much blood and spit. but after that i had some good pills to keep the pain down, after a few days almost a week things were about back to normal.

    but after coming out of it was a pain. you feel like you were seriously wrecked.

    Be sure and take it easy on the liquor while you're on those pills.

    Hope you have a fast recovery. Better than when I had 4 wisdom teeth pulled out while I was awake and onboard an aircraft carrier 10 years ago when I was in the Navy, :) .

    They asked me if I wanted to be awake for the procedure,and I said "No thanks,I'll pay the extra to knock me out."I never felt any pain at all,well worth the extra charge.

    I remember getting mine out. Not nearly as bad as I was expecting it to be. Though the vicodin probably helped with a lot of that, lol. Didn't have any problems coming to afterwords, though I do remember going to get the prescription filled at Buehler's and not realizing that I had blood dripping from my mouth...It's a good thing I wasn't alone, lol.

    I think I might have gotten to ninety-six. Though I could easily have gone out before that, and I just imagined counting longer, lol.

    For me it was 7 in the morning the day after finishing like 6 exams in a row, I told them to forget the counting and get on with it, and promptly went back to sleep.

    Is it a bit silly that a 24 year old dude is still somewhat afraid of dentists? I think it is, but honestly they still scare me.. :p

    I really need mine taken out as soon as I can, it's really irritating. I had my other tooth taken out a few years back, and what an improvement!
