Anesthesia

Loss of sensation in the body induced by an anesthetic

Question: anesthesia? ? I am going to have my wisdom teeth pulled out this friday and I heard that some people die from a reaction to the anesthesia. My grandma and grandpa had anesthesia before and nothing happened. But when it comes to nervous occasions like this, I usually breath faster and freak out and do you think I will have a reaction to the anesthesia?

Answer: Dont freak out, its okay. They have stuff to bring you back if you have a reaction. They will monitor your blood pressure and heart rate while your under too to make sure your okay. Its not as scary as you think just sounds scary. Its like a really deep nap. Good luck, I had my wisdom teeth dug out and pulled too, I got put under and so gald I was. Take care~
