I saw my dental surgeon today to discuss the extraction of my remaining two (top) wisdom teeth. I blogged all about dental sedation and how it will not present significant complications with my ME/CFS.
Today he confirmed that my amitriptyline doesn’t contra-indicate with the sedation so we are all set to go! I’m booked in to have the teeth extracted in a few weeks. Gulp!
The dental surgeon also assured me that this time things be a lot easier than when I had my bottom wisdom teeth out last year (one of which proved to be complicated – gory details available to anyone who wants them). These remaining teeth are already pointing in the direction that they need to come out (yeah to teeth growing outwards!).
So hopefully the impact on my health CFS/ME wise will be minimised. It’s an early start (for me) as the surgery is around 45 minutes away but the whole day should be a blur thanks to the sedative ;o)
So feeling re-assured and ready to get these damn teeth out! But maybe just a teeny bit nervous – but you have to expect that from someone who needs an IV sedative I suppose.
