"Wisdom teeth removal 30th"

About: Guy's Hospital

I had my teeth out a day ago. I was very anxious about being put to sleep and having my wisdom teeth out. They had to cut the tops of the bottom ones and take out 2 extra baby ones and take one out of the top. When I arrived at 8 we was seen by the anaesthetist and the surgeon very quickly and weight and blood pressure done all quick and efficiant and very clean everywhere, and I was in the theatre by 10.20! I think one of the members of staff was the anaesthetist, who was very friendly and spoke me through what they were doing and what they were going to do, the anaesthetist made me feel relaxed as I think they could see I was very scared and shaking. They had ub40 playing in the theater before I went to sleep and this made me feel more relaxed as it made a nice atmosphere. They said what to expect when I wake up and when they put me to sleep and they even told me to have a good sleep which made me relax. When I woke up the member of staff was very friendly and told me everything went well and showed me my teeth. All of the people there where very kind and calm and friendly and made me feel calmer and they are deffinatly a credit to the department. If they wasn't as nice as they were, I think I would of been so much more scared. The only thing is once I woke up I had about 20 minutes and they wanted you up out of the bed and walking soon your ready, but I suppose they have lots of people to see so they do need the beds and you cant just sleep for hours, but they do make sure you feel okay before they let you walk and they talk you through your meds and what to expect pain wise and that. Overall I would recomend anyone who needs anything dental done to go to guys.
