In all my rage, I forgot to say YAY! for an extra $600 from the government in an automatic stuffed deposit.

I also have a question for any of you who have had i.v. sedation for an oral surgery. On May 10th, I'll be partaking in one of those for a deep gum cleaning and a filling. (I also get to on the 15th, for my wisdom teeth removal - eek.) My question to YOUS, is... how do you feel the very next day? On May 11th, I am possibly being requested to work a 10 hour shift - open to close - for one of thee very first times I'll be 100% on my own at work as a supervisor - the ONLY supervisor/manager working all day. Will this be feasible, or will I still be a bit too woozy or whatever?

You should probably be okay. You may get pretty damn tired, but should still be able to think normally at least.

I was surprised that I remembered as much as I did from it - I keep meaning to make a post about the whole thing before I forget more details, but so much effort is involved! BRAIN POWER that I lack ;)

I had oral surgery for a root canal last year. I seem to recall the antibiotics they had me on afterwords played with my stomach a wee bit. I was a little tired but I did go into work the next day. Now granted I'm a desk jockey so your mileage may vary on a more labor intensive work day.

I totally felt hungover the next day and almost as if I were sick - out of it, sleepy, FREEZING... Only the day after that was when I felt truly normal again.

I'd just like to say...that the government/news reporters lied. Not everyone got $600 or $1200 depending on their filing status. And that suddenly the words "up to" appeared on the IRS site. eff them.

I was of the opinion that I would believe it when I got it, and would live my life as if I weren't getting it.... though I got a bit threadbare towards the end!

I never believe anything the government tells me unless I can see it with my own eyes or hold it in my own hand.

don't worry, next year they'll bill you for the "loan" with interest.

You're having sedation for deep cleaning/filling?

Do you go to a sedation dentist?

Ben (bf) just had a deep cleaning done and he was fine - said it was a little annoying but no real big pain. I'll be doing that soon, too, and plan to go back to work the next day.

Haven't had sedation for dentistry ever, but I'll tell you that post-root canal, I was out with my trivia group, having good times. :)

I don't go to a dentist that specifically does that, but I guess it's something that they offer. I'm apparently extremely hard to numb - it took six shots the last time I went to numb me enough to where I wasn't screaming in pain for the drilling they were doing for the fillings on my left side. I hated feeling a bit sick and hungover the next day (presumably because of the dehydration that occurs since you can't drink for so long before it, and are too out of it to drink when you're done) but am so down for that for any major procedure from now on.

For what it's worth - I was awake for my wisdom teeth removal, and just got loopy-drugs (a pill), and I was VERY skeptical about it. (I have a fear of being unconsious, so opted for being awake but sedated). So, I was worried that I would feel too-much of the operation and be uncomfortable. Let me tell you that they worked perfectly. I had to have two of my teeth broken before they could be dug out of my jaw (shudder), and during the procedure, I just didn't care. It felt no worse than if the dentist was just sticking his fingers in my mouth. A little pressure, but zero pain or uncomfortable-ness. And no loopy-ness the next day. I highly recommend this option.
May. 3rd, 2008 03:20 pm (UTC)
I second this - I was awake, too, and remember quite clearly begging my parents to reconsider and take me to an oral surgeon (dentist didn't do sedation). I'm so glad I went this route - not only did I not feel/care, but my recovery was faster than anyone else in the family, who all were sedated.
May. 13th, 2008 02:22 pm (UTC)
I know that one of my teeth never pushed through, so that's going to be the major one to give me heartache during that surgery. I was terrified of ever being intibated (howeveryouspell it - where they put a tube down your throat to help you breathe because you're out too much to breathe on your own) but had to have it done back when I had my sinus surgery - I woke up with one helluva sore throat, VERY sore teeth, and a cut lip. This is more of an.. altered state, really, to where you are awake and aware during it, but you really don't care and don't have an opinion of what's going on in your mouth or around you.
May. 3rd, 2008 03:01 pm (UTC)
When I get my teeth cleaned, I can't feel the side of my mouth they were working on. This usually only lasts a few hours though, I don't see why it would cause you any ill effect the next day.

I've never had any teeth pulled so I am of no help to you on that part of it all. I've heard that it can be rather tender for a while and they put you on simple antibiotics.
May. 13th, 2008 02:23 pm (UTC)
Because of the iv sedation thingie they did with me, I was out of it for the remainder of that day and felt hungover the entire next day. It sucks that I'm terribly difficult to numb, so this will probably be the route I have to go any time I get anything done other than a routine cleaning.
May. 3rd, 2008 03:18 pm (UTC)
I always vomit, a lot, after full sedation for oral surgeries. It's why, when I have a legitimate option to NOT be put out entirely, I choose it (even though I'm a dental weenie).

Your mileage may vary extensively. My sister was very pleased to be out like a light for her wisdom teeth; I was better served by not.
May. 13th, 2008 02:25 pm (UTC)
I've never been a thrower upper, thank doodness. I'm thankful that the drugs didn't make me SICK - I think I felt awful just from the slight lasting effects of the magical bag of yum, plus dehydration, as I mainly felt hungover more than anything else. I was BEYOND thankful that work had decided to let me off the second day, though - I could have made it, but I would SO prefer to not have to.
May. 3rd, 2008 03:53 pm (UTC)
Aside from the pain of the actual surgery, I felt no worse than a hangover. So, if you can work with a hangover, go for it. Otherwise, some schedule juggling may be in order.

When I had my wisdom teeth out, I took a week off. a) because I had the paid time off available b) I worked in a call center & really didn't think I would be able to talk all day immediately afterward.

May. 13th, 2008 02:27 pm (UTC)
I have some slight bruising feeling at the iv site, and felt hungover like a BITCH the next day, but that was about it.

I'm just thankful that work let me off for that day, so I wouldn't HAVE to work through how I felt!

My wisdom teeth, however... those are coming out on Thursday, and I am SO dreading it. My brother said that he had zero pain afterwards, but... I get three days off for it (vacation) and my normal days off fall after that three days, so maaaaaybe a nice five day weekend? One can only hope. I'm a new supervisor, though, so I wouldn't be surprised if I get a couple of crap shifts for awhile.
May. 3rd, 2008 04:06 pm (UTC)
I had a wisdom tooth out and "deep planing" last year, each time the doped me up on novocaine. Other then the numbness afterwards, I would typically just come home and sleep it off for a few hours and that was it.

I did go straight back to work once and was able to work just fine, but the only thing I normally have to lift is my spirits after banging away on the keyboard most of the day.
May. 3rd, 2008 04:11 pm (UTC)
this is going to sound offensive, but ,.. knowing you and your bad experiences with every sickness, injury, and new meds.. maybe you should plan to NOT come to work the day after you have dental work...
I'm sure they must understand? I mean, you're pretty honest with people, They probably would understand.

but, you can offer to come in to help out (but not be the only supervisor?) if you're feeling up to it, you just dont want to leave the store scrambling if you have to call in due to feeling crappy with no notice..

iv sedative will make you feel like dying when you wake up.
the next day is okay.
I used iv sedative when the chipped away my jawbone to extract impacted wisdom teeth.

seems excessive and expensive for a filling and gum scraping
May. 3rd, 2008 04:38 pm (UTC)
The only time I was woozy the day after was when I popped my pain pills (because Vicadin turns me into a loopy nutball). The IV sedation itself didn't have any side effects for me. (I had it for my wisdom teeth, just for the record.)
May. 3rd, 2008 08:50 pm (UTC)
I was really groggy the next day, like when you wake up still drunk. I could manage as long as it didn't require concentration.
May. 4th, 2008 03:17 am (UTC)
A friend's of mine mother(what is the english for that line), anyway, she has to be sedated to have that scope that looks into your stomach. She usually comes out of it within an hour but is all tired and kinda confused after for a few hours. So depending on how deep you are put under, plan on having someone to drive you home and then you will sleep. So if you have to work the next day, your mouth may be sore and you will probably be tired some. But she always seemed to be OK in 24 hours ... so ... Anyway(superstitious here) good hunting!!! lol :]

I had two wisdom teeth removed and came home to do yard work.

Namely, removing this mofo.</a>

Seriously, my jaw hurt, but only until I spit out the F-ing gauze the told me to clench between my teeth. After that was gone, I was fine.
May. 5th, 2008 04:20 am (UTC)
Oh, and no, I wasn't sedated. Just the local please, thank you.
May. 5th, 2008 07:01 am (UTC)
I would try to arrange to have a day off work the day after the surgery. If you can't get the 11th off, then reschedule the surgery for a day where you will have off work the next day.
May. 8th, 2008 01:28 pm (UTC)
When I had my wisdom teeth out one afternoon, I was still pretty out of it the rest of the night. The next day after 8 hour sleep I was pretty well fine again, aside from my mouth feeling weird.

Why IV sedation for the gum cleaning? I thought that was just a local anesthetic thing. Now you got me worried in case I need that.
May. 13th, 2008 02:11 pm (UTC)
They tried to do the local shot thing for the deep gum cleaning when I went in the time before for that + three fillings. I'm apparently extremely hard to numb (lucky me) and kept jumping and wincing as they were trying to do what they could, so they recommended that to me.

Totally the way to go, if you don't mind being out of it for a couple of days.
