Author Topic: I've been feeling awesome...but now I have to have round 2 of my dental work:(  (Read 796 times)

I've been seriously feeling awesome...so awesome. Lots of energy, strength, stamina, clarity. My goodness it feels so good to be basically back to normal.

However, tomorrow I have 2 tooth extractions happening, and some of you will remember how I had a setback from the topical meds (carbocaine/epinephrine).
I found only one oral surgeon who would take me with my med sensitivity, and she will be needing to use fentanyl and versed. I asked for propofol but she said she won't use it with her patients...so I have to go with this bc its my only option. And I def need to get this tooth removed!

So I will be hoping for the best but I'm planning for the worst: I've filled out a MOLST form/advanced care directives and my health care proxy. I've had a long talk with my husband explaining how to handle things if i have a severe reaction. I'm honestly more concerned about the fentanyl. My problem is my channels flood super easy now (hmmm benzo damage in regards to regulating the body..). I mean i know in time this will heal but in the meantime this sucks!

I'm trying to not overthink it, but I feel better if I am prepared. If its like last time, I logically know it will take  30 days for the very worst fo the symptoms to ease and to see some light at the end of the tunnel. It will take another 30 days for me to be better functioning and I'll need to pace myself. Then after that it will be good. so basically I'll feel human somewhere in August lol... ::)

So If in the next week or two I post something desperate and I'm out of my mind please remind me how good I was feeling now and that I do recover!
I'm also going to make a video of myself tonight to remind myself in a setback that I will be ok again.

Hugs Friends!!

Just want to make sure you know versed is a benzo...is it really okay to have a dose? It seems like you researched all options very well so maybe this is the only way. Just want u to have the best chance of a smooth procedure. I hope it goes great for u!

Hi Trina.  Right off the bat Versed is a benzo, which I was given for surgery, and which set me back into acute for months.  I was basically recovered when I had a reverse colostomy in August of 2019, and here I am now at 25 months, and doing very well also.  I just wanted to give you a heads up on that front and also to wish you good luck!!!!

Hugs,

GG

Good luck, Trina. Youíre a couple months ahead of me, so I read your posts crossing my fingers that Iíll be progressing on a similar timescale. So far, weíre healing in different ways, but both still getting there. Iíll send good vibes to the universe for your healing. Also, sometimes in healing we anticipate that so ething will hit our systems hard and then itís actually fine. For what thatís worth.
