I had my pre-op appointment on Friday to check I'm ok to have my wisdom teeth out on Monday. It was way more thorough than I expected - I had my blood pressure and pulse measured, had swabs taken from my nose, the back of my throat, and my 'perineum' which was basically my groin! And I had some blood taken...my stupid left arm wouldn't give any blood, so I had to have the needle in both arms, and then I had to have an ECG heart tracing. They don't normally do the ECG, but cos I'd written about having mild dizzy spells/faintness on my questionnaire, they had to check I didn't have anything wrong with my heart. Which luckily I don't! Apparently I have 'a very happy heart' according to the nurse! But she did keep checking my pulse and said it was a bit quick! But she said it was nothing to worry about.
Anyway, so apparently I should be getting my teeth taken out on Monday, but I still haven't had a confirmation letter from the hospital, so I don't know where I'm meant go when I get there or what time I've got to be there or anything. I'm a bit nervous cos I've never had any kind of operation before, so I'm a bit worried about going under anaesthetic and everything!
