But did she get her wisdom teeth out?

Jesus.. I wish they would have knocked me out when they took mine out.. at age 31. It took a jack hammer, fourteen drills and five men with very large hands to get mine out. Worst experience ever.

Well that played out like a genuine horror movie, at least in the beginning. Imagine being all loopy from the drugs and waking up to a world where everyone is gone. Twilight Zone-ish.

I've seen worse...a friend of mine was given the wrong anesthetic for her wisdom teeth removal, whatever they gave her left her fully awake, aware, and feeling everything but unable to give any response. Welcome to your own private little piece of hell....of course, it'll be years before she has to work again after that stettlement.

"I will not get anesthesia again," she said. "I don't care what procedure I have to go through, I just have to suffer through the pain."


Riiiiiiiight. Good luck when you have that appendix removed.

Gotta love how the staff couldn't believe they were so negligent...

How is this scary?

they have nitrous and vicodin there.

"People now realize that something this crazy can happen to someone."

Finally we have emerged into the clear realm of absolute knowing.
 
2008-04-22 12:35:29 PM
People who go in to have general anesthesia are usually required to have someone there to help them get home.

Why she would go in to have a wisdom tooth removed alone is what's scary.
 
2008-04-22 12:36:02 PM
Well, I hope she likes owning her own dental practice, because everyone in that office is going to be working for her for the next 20 years.

"Terrified, I was hyper ventilating," Mercado said. "I threw up a couple of times from over exhaustion of crying.

Wow, overreact much?

/Groper, I hardly knew her!
 
2008-04-22 12:37:30 PM
Ok, I get that the place was negligent and all, but the lady was really crying and panicking because she was locked inside a building? Why didn't she just break the window and leave?

2008-04-22 12:39:16 PM
No, that can't be true! It would never happen!

FTFA: CBS 2 HD has learned a lot more about these shocking, real-life allegations.

Oh. Never mind.
 
2008-04-22 12:39:17 PM
Maybe she can hook up with that elevator guy.
 
2008-04-22 12:39:19 PM
Punked! I can't believe she fell for the oldest trick in the book!

That is absolutely terrifying, that is just a whole new level of awful. When I went in to have my wisdom teeth removed, I opted for an alternate anesthetic method. Instead of knocking me unconscious, I was given two very strong painkillers and one very strong sedative. I was awake the entire process, didn't feel a thing, cept for some pressure on my jaw, and didn't give a crap the entire time. I even got to ask for my teeth back when the process was over.

I was thinking the same thing, but then realized that comment was most certainly under direction of a competent attorney.

I had a miserable dental procedure about a month ago - same drill. Take 2 triazaolam the night before, then 2 more an hour before the appointment. I swear I don't even remember the day.

/ same drill - get it?
//rimshot
///and groans

Ah, but then she would have no proof with which to sue.

Coming out of general anesthetia is weird. You're not in your right mind and everything is just a bit off. I'd imagine that coming out of that into this really bizzare scenario would be enough to make most people panic.

Ut dudn;t taje 5 karge nenm but sure took longer than normal. I had two wisdom teeth being pulled, one went out easy and fast, the other....not so much and not so much fun either. And yea, I was 31, just like you, when I had them pulled.

Exactly. It's not like she woke up in the middle of gall bladder surgery and everyone was gone! Disoriented? Upset? Maybe. Hysterical? Vomiting?? Please! Man up, Nancy.

/works in a dental office

Actually, everything went fine with my wisdom teeth and I was still hyperventilating and throwing up afterward....I think sometimes it is just a bad reaction to the anesthesia.

Still, that would suck to wake up with the place locked.

When I came out of anesthesia after having one of my teeth pulled up slightly to fill in the bone, I was sobbing and hysterical. It just happens for no reason. It's like you're freaking out BEFORE you even wake up and it just continues.
 
2008-04-22 12:45:53 PM
If you react with common sense and just let yourself out, you don't get the big payout when you sue.

Doesn't seem that way for me. Maybe I just drink too much.

I kept mine too! Not a bad process at all, if your Dr. knows what he is doing.

You realize while they say it'll be painless to go through they leave out the part where it's painful to heal. Soft foods for close to a week, ice pack on face (for the swelling) and no pain killer really helps

/Vicodin...meh
 
2008-04-22 12:47:07 PM
I was awake for my 4 wisdom teeth. A little gas to take the edge off, a bunch of painful shots and then I was numb and able to tell them if I felt anything. Drove myself home after 2 minutes of oxygen to clear out any left over gas in my system.

The noise of the roots being pulled out was the worst (crunch crunch)

/Done within 30 mins. Drove home drooling on my bib.
 
2008-04-22 12:47:07 PM
while yeah, that sucks, i think her reaction was f'in retarded. Hyperventilating and throwing up?

i'd hate to be trapped in an elevator with this woman.

In that case, it sounds like her crying, vomiting, etc. has nothing to do with being left alone. Guess she would have done it anyways.

When I woke up from general from my wisdom tooth thing, I immediately started biatching about the guy not asking me to count backwards from 100 or something.

Better question, why didn't she use the phone? She forgot the number to 911?

Apparently! She called the referral service and they called 911. She couldn't remember the emergency number.

No, she remembered...because somehow she decided to call the referall service and THEY called 911.

Triazolam is one drug I will NEVER do again.
(and I'm a fan of recreational pharmacology)
I've had 2 experiences with it. Both were dental surgeries.
My complaint is not with the effects during surgery, but with the after-effects.
During the surgeries I was very relaxed and didn't care what was happening.
Immediately after it was over, I was drowsy, but remembered everything.
It was after the drug wore off that my memories of the surgeries started dissolving.
It was like parts of my life were being erased and I found it EXTREMELY unsettling.
 
2008-04-22 12:52:53 PM
Anasthesia is more about creating a state of amnesia and unconsciousness than eliminating the pain. Your body remember the pain even if you don't remember it.

And all dentists are evil.
