eep... I just read this story about a young man who went in to have his wisdom teeth removed but later died. gma.yahoo.com
How I am so sad and pray for the family that is grieving over his death. I am even more sad and scared now for myself. Monday at 10:40 I will be having having my wisdom teeth removed. I have been putting it off because I thought it was unnecessary plus when I was still covered under my parents insurance my mom suggested I wait a year until the new plan starts but then I forgot all about it. Now I am 28 soon to be 29 and I read that there are more complications that can arise when you are older. All four of my teeth are impacted, two are peeking through the gums and my mouth is not big enough for them to fully come in. They aren't really bothering me, the gums become tender every now and then but the pain is never unbearable. I do have teeth that aren't touching the wisdom teeth that hurt every now and then but the dentists can't find anything wrong with them. I am hoping that it is my wisdom teeth that is causing the problems with the other teeth. Now I am scared to go in and have them removed because I was going to opt to get general anesthetic because I read that that is the best option when getting all four teeth out.
Please pray for me, pray for that the procedure will go well with no complications on Monday (if I go through with it), so many fears and uncertainties are running through me regarding this procedure on Monday. I just want to cry and I really wish I never had wisdom teeth now.
