I've had surgery a couple of times & my wisdom teeth & the sedation you get from ER was NOTHING compared to that. I mean I woke up fully straight away with little grogginess. I had a valium for my ET and was probably a little more out of it from that.
After the ER my husband drove me home & I worked on the couch, sending emails & all that for the rest of the day. So everyone's experience is different but I hope sharing mine will make you feel a little more at ease.
Advice on starying calm, practice breathing excercises where you just sit quietly and listen to your deep slow breathing. Or meditation. I listened to opera solidly for about 5 hours one day wen I was after getting bad news and it made me feel better.
keg:Are they using conscious sedation? If so, that's one of my favorite things. For me, you're basically asleep with none of the nasty side effects of general. When I wake up, everyone is beautiful and life is good. :-) I actually was looking forward to my ER because I knew I would be getting a nice nap. The unknown is always scary, but ERs aren't bad at all. Hang in there!
This exactly! It was the easiest part for me and you get lots of attention too!
