Hi, I am new here and I hope to find some confident in here. Basically, I have 2 impacted wisdom tooth that requires surgery and when I heard of the word 'SURGERY', my mind went blank. I wanted to go for GA for this surgery but I read online that it has it's risk and I would pretty much like to avoid it as much as possible as I can't imagine how I am not going to wake up and having lots of imagination.I also am not a candidate of GA as I have contant flu problems and I know you can't proceed if you have cold or flu.I read many success story of wisdom tooth extraction here and I felt more at ease. People have been telling me to just go for LA but I am super tensed up by just the thought of it. People asked me to listen to music but I know I might just can't do it at all. It's been one week that I've been vomiting acid and went to toilet multiple times and having a great panic attack and had no appetite to eat or take part in any activity like I used to do. I want to be myself back again. I read about twilight sedation, I wonder how it is like. Most people said that it is considered as a conscious sedation and if your'e lucky enough you might even fall asleep. But how is it possible to fall asleep when you open your mouth, I tried opening my mouth on the bed but I can't go to sleep at all because my muscle is working and it sends a signal to my brain. I am also understandable that conscious sedation also meant you can feel all the work done in your mouth and I am afraid of that as well, I don;t know what else I can do? What type of sedation best suits me based on your experience, please help me..
