hi i have adhd, aspergers syndrome and i also suffer from anxiety i am due to go to the dentist tomorrow morning for treatment under sedation /general anaesthesia and i am very anxious i wonder you could talk me through this sedation and general anaesthesia and how long it would last any advice would really apreciated thanks
Hello Ive just got your question , so may be too late .
Im not sure what typr of sedation you are having . It sounds like you will first of all have an injection into your hand or arm veins . Usually men have good easy veins so that should just involve you feeling a small scratch
Then you will gradually feel a bit lightheaded and calm , and slip into a state of deep sedation . You probably wont remember any of the procedure .
However with your condition its important for you to ask the team to tell you whats going to happen and tell them anything that will upset you before you start the procedure .
Good lucjk and hope this helps
