So I am having my wisdom teeth removed on friday and I am getting more and more nervous. I have all four of my wisdom teeth already so they just need to pull them out in preparation for my double jaw surgery.
I am not so worried about the actual teeth being pulled out or having my gums stitched since i will be very numb and very asleep. the recover doesn't bother me much either because I have already had 4 premolars removed. The thing that really bothers me is the IV. I haven't had one in a really long time and I am already such a chicken when it comes to needles. I am going to call the surgeons office tomorrow and see if I can go to my doctor to get a sedative to take prior to going in. When I had my premolars removed I took a sedative 1 hour before which is probably the reason why I let them put lots of needles in my gums and just enjoyed the whole process. I swear, I remember the whole thing and I enjoyed it, I was laughing the whole time.
I go in at 8am on Friday and I will not be able to eat or drink after midnight the night before. I'm not too concerned with that since I am usually not up at 8am and I usually don't eat that late.
I'm trying to stay calm. I must say I am insane for finding the IV to be the scariest part but that is truly how I feel. My veins are all very visible which probably helps.
UPDATES REGARDING MY TEETH
I can almost stick my whole tongue out when I have my teeth completely closed.
My lovely gap is getting larger (i still don't know why I have a gap)
I still have pain in my lower teeth and I can see them leaning more forward.
I am finding it harder not to drool when I am concentrating as my mouth doesn't really close at all anymore. (yes this is so sad)
Also, I have French again on Wednesday night and I am praying that I don't get embarrassed yet again for not being able to pronounce anything due to my lovely bite.
Thats all for now, I will update after my wisdom teeth are pulled.
