 Bloody Monday? more like bloody Tuesday

Well, Tuesday is the day when all 4 of my impacted wisdom teeth are removed.
I am 18 and am a person who tends to get very nervous about any medical
procedure. I never get the sicknesses other people get, I have the perfect
immune system it seems. I have never had any kind of surgery before so this
leads to even more apprehension. I was surfing the net, trying to find some
info that would calm my fears. Well I can honestly say I am now more nervous
than before. Look at the posts at one wwwboard:

-hi there..well, i'm 19 yrs old..and i had all 4 of mine out on jan
18..which was monday..and today is friday..i have a slight fever..i still
cant open my jaw..i'm still eating mushy food..i'm really craving for some
pizza..but i know i cant eat that now..
i did have a dry socket 2 days ago..but i went back to the {*filter*}surgeon..and
he put some medicine in it with a sticky tube thing..which Hurt!..and it
tasted really yechhy..but i think it was that medicine that gave me my fever
or something..i havent a clue..
let me just say that this experience categorizes with my least favorite
things!!!!
anyone out there knows when i'll start feeling better?? i hope i hear from
some of yall soon..it's nice to read other ppl going thru the same things
i'm going thru..

-I had all four of my wisdom teeth out on Tuesday and have been in extreme
pain ever since. I had to call the surgeon and ask for more pain meds,
tylenol was not working. This is the worst pain I have ever had. I am
craving PIZZA like you would not believe - pudding and milkshakes and soup
just do not cut it. I have to go back in tomorrow because he feels I have
dry socket - what a joy. I had to take the whole weekend off work because I
couldn't think cause it hurt so bad. I feel like such a wimp. Happy
recovery!

-I AM GOING THROUGH A VERY SIMILAR EXPERIENCE AS YOU I
HAVE A NUMB CHIN THAT IS DRIVING ME CRAZY. I AM REALLY WORRIED THAT IT WILL
STAY LIKE THIS FOREVER. WILL IT? I ALSO HAD MY LOWER LEFT IMPACTED WISDOM
TOOTH REMOVED. THE DENTIST TOLD ME IT HAD A CYST GROWING AROUND IT, AND THAT
IT HAD TO COME OUT. I AM STILL HAVING PAIN IN MY JAW AND EAR. DO YOU HAVE
ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR PAIN AND NUMBNESS? I AM REALLY FREAKING OUT WITH THIS
NUMBNESS. I MEAN TOTALLY, TOTALLY FREAKING OUT. PLEASE WRITE ME BACK AND LET
ME KNOW IF YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE GETTING BETTER. I HAD MY TOOTH PULLED 10 DAYS
AGO. THANKS,

-I had my two bottom wisdom teeth pulled two weeks ago March 3 and was not
doing too bad other than the soreness
About a week after, I started experiencing numbness in the lower right lip
and chin.
The surgeon told me that since my right tooth had very deep roots, the
socket is very deep too.
The {*filter*} clot that has formed is resting on the nerve which is causing the
numbness.
He told me that the numbness could occur as little as a few days to as long
as a month.
The numbness is driving ME crazy too!!! I wanted to know if yours ever went
away. I hope to hear
some good news!! :-)

-after reading your postingb about your tooth i just felt relieved that
someone was going through exactly what i was going through. i read about
tons of peoples impacted wisdom teeth problems but only you are going
through what i am . especially the numb chin. it is totally freaking me out.
i am really scared that my chin is going to be numb forever. please let me
know how you feel and if you are still feeling that cold numbness on your
chin. i really need some answers because i had a really bad experience with
this lousy dentist. he was a real arrogant jerk. i also wanted to tell you i
had the same tooth pulled as you. the bottom left. i hope to hear from very
soon.

-I am 28 years old, and I had my wisdom teeth 4 out on 1/8/99. They put me
to sleep(best choice, although cost more). The first day is the worst, can't
eat (numb). The second day start to swelling, and the third day my face like
a Super Ball. Now 7 days passed. I took all the medicine doctor give to me,
so not feel much pain, but today I start felling pain, uncomfortable. I went
to doctor yestorday, he said I have a small dry socket. He put a package in
it. It small bad, realy bad.
I will see the dentist tomorrow for another package.

The good thing is my swelling is smaller. Maybe because I did put tea
leaves(after brewed) on my face, and drink a lot of fresh Honey Water.(Honey
is good to cool down youself motion temp).

Try to do some interest thing you like, this may take you attention away
from this wisdom thing.

Any way, no matter pull out it, or not pulled, we have to go through once in
this "HELL".
Go luck to everyone.

-I got my wisdom teeth out a little over a week ago. I did not think it was
that bad although I can deal with pain quite well.
I am a 22 year old female. all four were taken out and the two bottom ones
were impackted. well let me tell you that now I regret the whole
thing. my mouth taste {*filter*} and I have pain in my lower mouth where the
holes are now.
I have to scrape the cooking.net">food that I eat out of there. it is sooo gross and also
the pain can be so bad.
I am feeling tired and starving all the time and also a tingling feeling. I
want to know when my mouth is going to heal.
I can't take this anymore. especially when I wake up and my mouth is tasting
even grosser than ususal.
I mean all the cooking.net">food gets stuck and I hate this sooo much.
I wish so much that I never had these teeth pulled. I mean I was not
experiencing any pain before. my teeth feel weak and are getting yellow and
all I do is use mouth wash and
rinse my mouth and brush my teeth and floss nothiing works, not even the
penicillin.
Please can anyone tell me when my mouth will be normal again??

And there's more where that came from. What sane individual would not be
scared to death after reading all of that? My {*filter*}surgeon said the chance
of numbness is 2 percent, it looks like the chance of not having numbness is
0 percent after doing some research!

I am probably most nervous about the general anethesia, although I am kind
of glad my surgeon doesn't like to do it any other way. How long will it
take to wake up afterwards? I don't like the idea of chemicals taking
control of my system.

All I keep thinking about is {*filter*} squirting from my gums, unbearable pain,
and infections. To make it worse I have never had any kind of pain
medication in my life, not even tylenol, and I know the stuff is going to
tear up my sensitive stomach. And just my luck it is going to be 90 degrees
and humid on Tuesday, and all I will have is a fan to blow the gauze out of
my mouth and rip open my gums again.

I have had several friends do this procedure, and overall they say it isn't
that bad, although they are reluctant to give alot of details, which makes
me wonder.

By the way what is having an IV like? Do they stick a tube with a sharp end
in the vain of the wrist?

Joey,

Remember one thing.  People who have a less than pleasant experience tend to
run out and tell at least 15 other people about it.  People who have a good
experience tend to be quiet or only tell only one or two other people.

That is not to say you will have no negative experiences.  You just need to
remember that people love to broadcast any negative experiences.  Think
about what happens if you go to a automotive repair facility and have good
treatment.  Who do you come home and tell.  Now imagine you went there and
were either treated poorly, or had a bad experience (cost much more than
estimate, more things kept breaking on the automobile, normal parts would
not fit, etc.) When you get home from this visit you tend to broadcast your
experience to everyone who will listen to you.

Now we have the internet, and any person with access to a computer can
broadcast to the entire world!!!  Also, remember that anyone can type
whatever they want on this medium, and verification of what is being said is
difficult.

Read, listen and learn.  Understand all the possible sequelae of the
proposed treatment.  Then, find a Doc you can trust and move forward.  You
will glad in the end.  It may not be the easiest thing you ever did, but I
doubt you will have an extraordinary problems.

Dr. Steve

I am probably one of the worst dental patients
around.  Thought I'd tell you that the removal of
my wisdom teeth was probably the easiest dental
experience I've had.  I never swelled, and only
one "hole" was kind of sore for awhile healing.  I
never had to use any of the pain meds provided.  I
also had general anesthesia, which was very nice.
The feeling of an IV is similar to when they take
{*filter*} for a test.  I didn't have much bleeding at
all.... they used stitches which dissolved. My son
had his removed about 3 years ago under local
anesthesia, and went back to work the next day.

As far as waking up, the first thing I remembered
after sitting in the chair and having the IV
started was them telling me to wake up.  Once back
home I napped most of the day.  If you have a
sensitive stomach, don't take pain meds unless
necessary.

I realize some people have problems, but a lot of
us didn't.  Hope yours is a "piece of cake".

I had two wisdom teeth out in my 20's.  I worked the next day... had no
significant swelling.  Ate little or soft foods for a few days, but it was not
THAT traumatic.  This was a long time ago, and under local (not general
anesthesia).

I do remember it seemed the dentist was sweating and working like crazy... when
he finally got the thing out, he insisted on showing me the twisted, u-shaped
roots so I could appreciate how hard he had worked.  (I could have done without
that :) )  Amazing that thing could even be pulled out!

Under a general, it probably would have been easier for both of us, but it was
really a truly not that bad.  

As to an IV, it is a simple thing, a needle inserted into a vein like when they
take a {*filter*} sample.  Then they tape it in place and you don't even feel it.
(you only feel the {*filter*} of the needle as it is going it... and the tape on
your skin when they pull it off... NOTHING to worry about!)

If you are sensitive to these things, just look away as it is being put in and
wiggle your toes.  (I know, it sounds silly... but it works!)  Wiggling your
toes will distract you from what is going on and you won't even feel it.
(works for shots, too)  

Good luck!
