update on my wisdom teeth... I got them out this morning and I was so scared. The one nurse held my hand because I've never had surgery before and she told me I looked terrified. The nurses talked me through everything while they were doing it. Over all I'm proud of myself for not canceling and I did it anyways. It honestly wasn't as bad as I was worried it would be thank God. I'm happy they won't be bothering me anymore. I'm in a bit of pain, I was lucky the teeth were already out from the gums and came out easily. So yeah now I'm on a liquid diet for 24 hours.

        @Motley same! I have a fear of surgery. I'm not good with medical things. I'm kinda glad that it was just my wisdom teeth because I built it so much worse in my head and it was actually not that bad of an experience oddly. I'm still hoping I don't have to have major surgery that's still a big fear

      Personal story from when I got mine removed. So majority of your face is a sinus cavity and for me when I got mine removed my top wisdom teeth the roots were in my sinus cavity. Ps sorry for making it about me

      I love surgery lol. It's literally the only time it feels like I've slept....even if the surgery is only like half hour
