I know this is a little off topic, but not completely.  I am having surgery today to remove my tonsils (had strep one too many times last year).  I hope I don't have a seizure under anesthesia, the doctor seems very worried about this.  Has anyone else had this before?  Anyway, please think of me this afternoon, I would appreciate it!!

Good luck! hope everything goes well! I did experience having a Tonic Clonic after having my wisdom teeth out but it was probably because of the pain meds, it didn't happen till the day after the seizure. I guess make sure you know what meds they put you on because I didn't realize I couldn't be on Coden until then. Hope that helps! ~Jessica

Just wanted to let you all know the surgery went off without a hitch.  The surgeon took extra precaution and kept me in ICU overnight to make sure that there were no complications afterward.  I am going back to him for a follow up on Monday and he will let me know then if I can go back to work that day.  I am about to go stir crazy sitting at home.  Just wanted to say thanks for your thoughts and concerns last week, I appreciate it very much.

Christie, glad to hear everything went well and you Dr. put you in ICU to be on the safe side. Sounds like a good Dr. I had my tonsils out when I was 17 and boy did it stink... it will all be over soon and you will be much healthier. Best of luck during your recovery. Tracy

Christie-

Glad you are doing so well!  Hope you got to have ice cream as part of your recovery.  ( I've have 4 surgeries in my life and they always gave me Dilantin and valium in my IV to make sure there weren't any surprise seizures).  I always felt like I DESERVED chocolate after each one! 

Good Luck with the rest of your recovery :-)  ,  Lots of Hugs :-) :-) :-) !     Glenda
