Journal Entry – VI
Wisdom Tooth Extraction Done
This turned out better than I ever thought it would be. Doctor put me on IV Conscious Sedation. I started feeling like something was blowing on my nose, but from the inside. I was going to tell them I was getting dizzy/lightheaded. I don’t think I managed to. I sort of just blacked out after that.
Next thing I remember was waking up, but was still really sleepy and somewhat lightheaded. The great news was that it was all already done. I didn’t even remember anything about any tooth getting extracted. It was pretty quick too. I expected it to last close to 2 hours. After waking up, they gave me a few minutes and then they were already helping me get up. Next thing I knew I was already in the car with my wife.
My mouth still feels numb and I have gauzes on the four corners of my mouth. I ended up coughing and blood actually came out involuntarily. So I’ll have to be more careful about that.
I am so happy it is over with, but now I’m dreading the recovery. Still this went way better than I expected.
