So you guys have all freaked me out a bit. I have a BMB scheduled for the end of the month. On my other BMB, I didn't have any sedation (other than lidocane), and I don't remember it being much of an ordeal. It was uncomfortable, but I tolerated it. I was a long-distance runner with a very high pain-tolerance for most of my life, and maybe that helped.
BUT. . .lately it seems like I've heard lots of folks talk about how awful theirs were (and not just Tedsey. .. and that one sounds like it was quite exceptional). So some questions. . .
1) If the first one was o.k. is that what I should expect from the next one?
2) If I have sedation, can I drive myself home or do I need a driver?
3) Am I just being a baby?
4) Am I being stupid to even think about doing a second one with no sedation?
I'm planning on getting a crown put on two days afterward. . .is that a bad idea?
Hmmm. . .I guess that's it.
Thanks a lot, for all of your horror stories. They have not been very helpful here!
And, Trey. . .just for clarification. . .the crown is going on my tooth, not my head.
