okay, i'll give you details on my extraction which took place on the 4th(saturday).
I was very nervous about the whole thing, and I opted for the sedation with the IV. I wasnt nervous though, ebcause i've had surgery before on my chest and I knew what the expect with the IV.
Anyways, I arrived at the oral surgery center at like 8am, they took me immediately, anyways I was sat down in the operating chair. A nurse came in, and put on some moniters for my heart and pulse I guess. Then she placed a tube-like device over my nose. I guess it was nitrous oxide? The surgeon came in, and prompty gave me the IV(he numbed the area first with another shot) in my arm. No pain whatsoever! Then I remmeber asking him questions like "so how long will this be?".
I woke up! I didnt even realize what had happened. I just woke up, and no one was in the room. Then the nurse came in, and unplugged all the moniter devices from me. And I went home. Its day 3 now, and honestly its great. Im in no pain whatsoever, so I dont need to take pain medication. The only problem is the swelling is keeping me from completely closing my jaw. You have nothing to worry about! Its not bad at all!
