I am due to have my lower right wisdom tooth removed next weekend under a general anaesthetic. I am terrified of being put under. I have had some problems with my thyroid recently and it has caused me to be anxious and have a racing heart, at times. I have been taking rescue remedy to help as the Dr agreed that I didn't need anxiety meds - all should sort out when my levels (for thyroid) are more stable. The consultant ran an ecg on Wednesday and that was normal.
I saw the consultant on Wednesday and told him I was taking rescue remedy and he never said a thing but at my pre-op the next day the nurse said that they usually advise people to stop taking herbal remedies two weeks before. She then went on to say I could keep taking rescue remedy but nothing else. Has anyone else had rescue remedy before a general?
I'm terrified that I won't wake up from being put under or that I will have a reaction to the anaesthetic. I have had a general before but I was only 7 at the time. I'm just sensitive to meds which is making me worry.
Any help, advice etc would be welcomed.
