As I told you last week, this week's Woofday Wetnose Wednesday thread would either be earlier or later than usual and it looks like early it is.

I've got to finish getting ready before my ride to my NP's office is here, so I'll see you on the flip side.

Greetings, fam. I promised an update post-surgery but didn't make it in time for the end of Caturday, so I will leave it here.

The surgery "technically" went okay. Implant is out. Other things were very much NOT okay and I just returned from my dentist today where I relayed my experience and received much needed and appreciated support.

In brief, I was instructed not to take my anti-anxiety meds pre-op. This is literally one of the "firsts" that happened - usually, doctors actually encourage me to take my medication, and often offer to prescribe a one-time higher dosage for pre-op use. This doctor told me not to take it after the 9pm cutoff time for "nothing more by mouth" the night before.

For anyone who doesn't know, I have Panic Disorder. I have been prescribed Xanax to manage symptoms since literally nothing else we've tried has worked very well. So, much as I would rather there were a viable alternative to using a benzodiazepine on a regular basis, it's what I'm stuck with for now until a better option comes along. This means I have a tolerance to the drug.

My surgeon opted to use a benzodiazepine "cocktail" (for lack of a better term) for my general anesthesia. He apparently failed to make adjustments for my tolerance level, so I spent much of my time awake under the knife.
This was exceedingly unpleasant, as you can guess - and one of the fears I was trying to combat prior to going in for this surgery.

It gets worse. I was, prior to any sedation and without explanation OR my explicit consent, physically restrained.  They used heavy canvas straps with velcro to tie my legs together and to the chair. Then, both wrists were strapped to the chair's arms so that I could not move. With no aid from anti-anxiety medication of any kind at this point, I began to dissociate.

Nothing like this has EVER been done to me for a medical procedure of any kind, so when I went to see my dentist today (I needed my "flipper" - a retainer with a false tooth attached to be worn during the healing period), I brought my husband with me and we explained to the dentist and technician what happened and that I would not be returning to this surgeon for any reason.

Both the dentist and tech said they had never heard of patients being restrained in this manner and apologized for my experience. The technician went further, saying that she would speak with the rest of the staff and to my surgeon's staff about this. She doesn't want their office to refer patients to this surgeon any longer. Though I don't know if anything will change as far as that goes, their kindness and attention meant the world to me. I sincerely hope that, if nothing else, this surgeon will alter his protocols and cease the unnecessary physical restraint of patients.

I couldn't stop crying for hours; all I could think about was "does he do this to little kids, too?"

Today I am doing much better and hope to be able to catch up on some sleep soon. I wish I had a happier tale to share, but this was two of my deepest, strongest fears come to life. But I am an adult and I know I have options for help should I need them, and I will take advantage of that as need arises. Most importantly, I'm still here, the worst is over, and I was heard by the people who can actually effect some change.

Oh dear, I'm so sorry that this surgeon did this to you, especially without warnig or consent from you! This makes me so freaking angry that they would treat a patient like this.

Holy fark. That is utterly unacceptable and he should have his medical license revoked for torturing you like that!!!

*Conspiratorial tone* how at risk is that surgeon's office for wildfires during fire season?

Bathia_Mapes, Fark that Pixel, laulaja, and Otera:

((((HUGS)))) Thank you so much for your kindness and understanding. I can't tell you how much it means to me to have my feelings heard and validated. I was really nervous about telling anyone, especially my dentist. I was afraid  he would drop me as a patient for "making trouble" but instead he made an appointment to check on my progress himself and said it was fine for me to see a different surgeon for any additional treatment that might be needed.

Right now I'm just so worn out from all the emotions. It feels good to truly be able to breathe again from the relief.

Oh, and since this is the Pupper Thread, I want you all to know that Brindy was an absolute angel yesterday. So well-behaved the entire time! I'm a proud mommy right now :-)

Right? I'm still hoping to hear that office is in a high risk area for wildfires. Followed by an update that the universe has Djelibeybi's back on this when wildfire season rolls around.  I'm still shaking with rage. Gonna have to brew up a nice GABAlong blend
