It is ok to be feeling this way and in my experience if you just tell them how you are feeling sometimes they can give you some drugs to help you with this situation that will ease up on your feelings. Having had shots of novacaine and cortisone put in mine I would say that it does hurt, but less and for a shorter period of time then having my wisdom teeth out.
P.S. it really helped with pain!!!!!!!!!! yeah and was totally worth the short term pain....

Hi Shelter

As Navy said you can get something to help beforehand... I would contact your doctor and let them know how you are feeling,they might want to do something for you the night before.


Please let us know how you are.

Hi Shelter,
This is what I do when I am dreading a procedure as I get anxious and even tried to leave the hospital one time.

I just keep telling my self by  bedtime this will all be behind me, it will be history.  I will be OK. Self talk can do wonders.  During the procedure try to take your mind to some pleasant place and keep picturing yourself in that spot.

Good lUck and I will be right here thinking of you.

Hi Shelter,

Also deep breathing helps with this anxiety. Try that, as others have said, maybe they can give you something beforehand. I would ask your doctor about that.

Hi Shelter,

Administration wants us to keep our signatures down to 10 lines or less, though I love your verse, I have been asked to alert you on this rule, #18 in the forum rules.

I am sure that you can understand my position, though I hate to have to ask you, could you please edit your signatuer to 10 lines or less when you have a chance. I know that you are facing some major and scarey things coming up. So I really feel bad having to ask this of you. AT your convenience could you take care of this for me.

Thanks in advance,

Luv and hugs, Karen
