I’m not wise anymore!

Because I removed my wisdom teeth!
It was such a harrowing experience.
I took the GA option, so I had to “check in” to TTSH Day Surgery ward on the day of the op itself.
8.45am: Arrival at TTSH Day Surgery
Changed into their gown and sat on bed no. 10, awaiting my turn.
9.30am: Wheeled into OT 20. This was when I cried. I was so terrified because my mum couldn’t follow anymore! So embarrassing, they had to wait for me to calm down before they could send me in.
10am: Candula done, waiting in the “preparation room” before going into the OT.
At approximately 10.30am, I was knocked out by the GA.
11.30am: Woke up in the post operative ward. Totally groggy and numb.
Mum was waiting for me outside already. But I think I was still feeling the effects of the GA, so I was drifting in and out of sleep.
12.30pm: Still at the post operative ward, took my BP like 1000 times. Gums bleeding like mad.
Still on drip and still groggy.
My teeth, all smashed into pieces. I think there were bits of my gum still stuck on the tooth. Eewwugh.
And now I have an orh cheh on my right cheek plus I have pouffy face.
All these for 8 days of hospitalisation leave. Meh.
Can’t eat, can’t laugh, can’t sneeze, can’t yawn.
I’m permanently hungry because I’ve been on liquid diet for the last 5 days.
But on the bright side, smooth bowel movements! Wahahahaha.
I’m almost turning vegetarian. Wth.
Ok, I’m officially bored.
