Tuesday, I will be in surgery; have a question

Mon Jul 15, 2013 11:04 am

I want to know if anyone else here has been through what I will have to on Tuesday.

I am having extensive oral and dental surgery Tuesday morning, and will be under general anasthesthia for at least 4 hours.

I am scared to death! Nothing like this has ever happened to me before; I have one small filling. A bad medication in 2001 destroyed my teeth, along with premature osteoporosis. So, this is what happened. And now, I must go through this.

Has anyone here had a similar experience? I will be in a dental office! So, it's terrifying to be knocked out there.

I will be posting tomorrow, but that's it. Maybe I'll be able to post after, maybe it'll take a while. Do not know. I won't be able to eat for some time, but perhaps I can type. Don't know.

Has anyone gone through anything like this?

Thank you for any info, and for your understanding. Love you guys.

I've had surgery but not at a Dentist's.

Just know that these guys are professionals and they will do a damn good job.

I'll be thinking of you: post when you're able. Don't worry, we'll all still be here when you get back.

God bless

Thank you, George. I sure hope you're right.

Have a great day, my friend. Or maybe a good week. I just want to wake up. It's not a hospital.

Don't worry, you'll be fine.
I once had a stabbed wound, punctured the stomach and had an emergency surgery!

You'll be A-OK! No doubt about it!!! Back in '96 I had some brain surgery and was under for quite awhile. Most likely they will use an agent like Diprivan (which IS very safe when used by professionals)!!!
One minute you'll be in the chair waiting for it to begin, then next thing you know you'll be asking when they are going to start - only to be told they are done already!!! No sweat, I promise!!!

Hang in there! I've not gone through something as extensive, but I do know that the great thing about anesthesia is it's like you blink your eyes, and "boom," you're done. Mostly after that you'll have to manage your recovery with rest and pain medication.

All the best from all of us -- you will be fine.

Thanks, everyone. What's really scary is that it's not in a hospital.

I appreciate everyone's thoughts and encouragement. Because I just wanna run! (Diprivan! "The Milk." Not in a hospital. I keep seeing Conrad Murray's face hovering in my mind's eye. "I told the troot." This all started with a doctor not telling me the troo, uh, truth. "Don't worry," MY doctor said about the bone loss. "It's reversible." It wasn't.)

Hope to be able to type ASAP, sometime late tomorrow, or the next day . . . this will be the first stop!

I just had my gall bladder out so I know this is stressful (46 stones!) Surgery isn't fun, but you will do just fine with it. Thankfully Conrad isn't going to be there.

We will be waiting and thinking about ya Robin.
I had an herna op.about 3 years ago and came out fine.
The Dr. who put me under came and chatted with me about what was going to take place
and said he was gonna use some Micheal Jackson juice,for real!!
My reply was "Don't Go Anywhere"!
You will be fine!!

Thanks. It's getting later; just had my "last meal." I either have to find a way to go to sleep early, or just stay up. (No, that's not a good idea.)

I really appreciate the encouragement.

Thanks Winston and Ken. I can't sleep. I have been contacting people to contact FECC just in case something goes wrong. Nothing will go wrong! Not worried! Not worried!


All the best, talk to you soon. Good night. :D

I love that stuff. Always puts me in a good mood.

I take a big dose of it every day before I get to work.

Rjm,
By the time you read this it'll probably be over and done. But just in case, don't let yourself stress too much about it. I went under for the first time in my life just last year and was a little freaked the day before. But it's exactly like everyone said, it's better than a deep sleep, you probably won't even know what happened.

Hopefully your recovery goes quick.... and painless.
Best wishes

Yes. Saw Kid Gallahad in bed today. Very soothing film, Elvis getting clobbered in Cream Valley. ;)

Took awhile for my pops to find "an Elwis mowie." "Want to see his face. Uh, records are square, DVDs not square. On coffee table." After several trips, finally "Is THIS is movie?" Gave thumbs up! "An Elwis mowie!"

As for surgery, they only got through half. Have to this again next month. Bummer.

Lots of good talk here. But, tomorrow. Thanks to all!

Best,
Robin
