Dear friends of the OC, I have a question...I'm considering surgery to have my wisdom teeth removed (at the ripe old age of mid-30-something!) and I'm curious. Have you had it done, and how did it go? For those on MDI, what did you do to deal with your BG levels? Did you take painkillers/steroids? How did they affect you?
I'm leaning toward a plan involving local anesthesia, doing one side of my mouth at a time. (I haven't had surgery since having my tonsils out at age 4, so the thought of going under is a little nerve-wracking.) I have two 'supernumerary' teeth in my upper jaw that will need a little more pushing & pulling than anticipated. Also, one of the lower teeth is hitting on the big nerve down there that apparently provides feeling to one's entire jaw (yikes!). Anyone go through a simliar experience, and if so how did it work out? Has anyone gone under or had partial gas?
Any & all comments are most welcome, thanks!
