I had sedation with colonoscopy and endoscopy I did them both on the same day under sedation.. I too went and looked up alot of your tube videos etc.. I was very very scared.. and thinking the worst possible wanting to chicken out. It went very very smoothly with no side effects from the sedatino except a little drowsines but not bad. is there a way you can do this without sedation? if you are worried?
Thanks Kelly, I appreciate your thoughts on it. I just showed my husband some of the horror stories I've read and he has completely changed his mind and thinks I should t have it. I want to have it out just with local but I get bad anxiety, shaking and sweating with epinephrine so I always have non epi local. This debpntist persuaded my to have epi fir my extractions nearly 2 weeks ago and I was fine, I felt a bit shaky, but it was over quickly. The next day I went back to gave my teeth prepped for crowns and I was there 3 1/2 hours, I took a lot of numbing and he'd said that it would be much better to use epinephrine again. But guess what? I kept having more shots and started getting shaky and u felt like I was going to have a full blown panic attack. I just about held on but felt very nauseous.
And then the temp bridge didn't fit so they put this awful looking temp in that thry made in the office and recommended me for iv. It's like the dentist didn't have any faith that I could go through treatment with local and no epi, but I have had 3 root canals done with it and no problems. I'm not nervous to go in and have treatment, I just don't want the adverse affects of local with epi. But I've got to go back this week and somehow get this new temp in my mouth without sedation and I'm worried. Thry said they have to freeze me up again to get the cement off my teeth and I wish they didn't. I don't want my teeth which are still quite sensitive after being prepped for crowns, disturbed again. Is it normal to freeze up the gums just for that?Sorry I'm going on a bit, I just want it over now, you know? I want to go back to work, to feel confident with my smile and to get through the appointment.
