I’m getting my wisdom teeth removed tomorrow and I am TERRIFIED about getting I.V sedation. Utterly terrified. Everytime I think about it I get extremely anxious, then nauseous. I looked up (bad idea I know) about wisdom teeth associated deaths and I saw articles, so many articles about a 17yr girl dying from a wisdom teeth removal. Then other articles about a 26-27yr man dying from having gauze blocking his airway. I am scared.. I WAS terrified about the process of them being removed, which I found out isn’t that bad. Then the recovery process, which isn’t that bad either. But, just being sedated doesn’t sit well with me anymore. I’m not sure what to think besides fear. I’m 16 and my mother can’t go back there with me even when they are putting me to sleep , I can’t bring anything with me not even my phone which makes my anxiety worse. At first I was happy with it, excited to have them out and now I’m scared.
