I’m absolutely terrified. I have horrible anxiety and have never been put under anesthesia before. I’m getting all 4 removed with IV sedation. They’re also giving me laughing gas before they put the IV in to relax me. They said I can take Valium beforehand to also relax me. I’m scared that all of these drugs are going to kill me and I won’t wake up. I also have emetophobia and I’m scared that the medicine is going to make me throw up. I’ve never felt so scared in my entire life. Doing it with just local anesthesia is not an option because they are severely impacted and I will probably freak out during the procedure if I’m awake. I’m so scared. I read something about a person that died after the procedure. I don’t want to die. Also will I have control over anything I say afterwards? I’ve seen videos of people acting really weird after the procedure. I’ve never dreaded something more in my entire life. Someone please reassure me... No horror stories please!
