Very true - when I was in hospital I was determined to get out as quickly as possible but it was stupid and I probably should have waited a couple more days as the doctor recommended. Even though it's boring it's normally the best thing to do what the doctors say....

Well I'm definetly going to find out why I could possibly have to stay overnight in the hospital for 4 days. When my cousin in law had a baby about 12 weeks ago, she spent 2 nights in the hospital and yet I should stay 4 nights because of some work on jaw? That doens't seem right I don't imagine there could be anything that they have to monitor for 4 days so the problem will probably be that I can't eat, but I'm sure I won't be able to eat for at least 2 weeks and I'm not going to stay at the hospital for two weeks lol

It can depend on how you react to the anesthetic. Sometimes you get side effects that they need to keep an eye on.

Well I'll stay for however long they want me to stay but they'll have to tell me why I've never, ever been the type of person who accepted a "just because" type of answer. I need explanations

Unforetunatly I think you're right They better give me some explanations at the hospital though. If they don't talk to me, I'll send my dad He's like me only more assertive and more persistent!

Re: The New, Hopefully Non-Slow Thread!

Yeah they seem to respond better to parents and older people. Travelling by myself as a 17 year old I seem to be largely ignored. I think I should become more stroppy....

I am so, so scared of that I'm a worrier to begin with and then about a week after I found out I had to have an operation I was watching a talk show and this woman was saying that she had had an operation and she was a bit nervous before going into the hospital because she had read that some person had been given anesthetic and they had an allergic reaction and died

You need to ignore stories like that. They're incrediably rare. I just mean you get more tired and can feel a bit sickey... serious reactions hardly ever happen.

Re: The New, Hopefully Non-Slow Thread!

Having a baby is a bit different from surgery because even though it can be a major trauma for the mother, it's a natural event which the body has mechanisms to cope with. Your jaw bones did not evolve with the possibility of being meddled with, and therefore might need more intervention to recover. However, provided your mum or someone is home to take care of you, you might be just as able to rest up at home after the first few days.

I know it's rare but it does happen and I just can't seem to get that thought out of my head I've got an appointment with the anesthesiologist (sp??) on tuesday so hopefully he'll be able to calm my nerves a little

I hope so! My mom can be around for whatever time is necessary because she's self employed so it's no trouble to be around to take care of me. My parents own a computer store and my mom does all the accounting/ordering/paper work but we've got a technician who works 5 days a week so my mom doesn't need to be in the store everyday.
