WIS to the DOM

I am certain the title of this post is hilarious, but I am totally drugged up on Percocet, so maybe not. Today I finally got my wisdom teeth out, I went all the way under and it was one of the weirdest things I've ever experienced in my life. Needless to say, tears were shed and when they were waking me up I was positive they were still trying to put me under and the meds weren't working. Good thing I never drank or did drugs, I hate feeling loopy. Awesome day.

I can't wait to read this tomorrow and see if it makes any sense.

Welcome to the club. Now you too can share horrifying stories of getting them out. Actually, the stories fall into two categories, "I was eating Doritos afterwards" and "It was so horrible that...oh, the doc sewed my gums to my cheek" genre.

I got all four of mine out for my mission over Christmas break.

I woke up during the procedure b/c my teeth were in there so tight (impacted) he had to crush them THEN remove them. I went home loopy and then immediately got the flu and threw up for the next 7 days!

I lost 12lbs in less than a week throwing up and feeling awful OVER CHRISTMAS! My Doc blamed me for his flu-ridden Christmas too.

So, whatever you do, make it a good story. :D You only lose this kind of wisdom once!

I'm SO sorry about getting the teeth out, it SUCKS big time! I'm with you, it's a good thing I've never even tried drugs, when I got my teeth out I totally wigged! Hope you heal soon!

Okay, love the pics! I don't like feeling loopy either, that's why I opted for "keep me awake and just shoot me full of a bunch of novacaine" when I got mine removed a few years back. Hang in there!
