Just a question - when you guys get surgery - what do you do with your GSD's?? Like im sure since Ber is still a puppy...he is going to want to go play outside, run etc, not sleep and lay around all day.. or do they know??
Scared my husband half to death because I was in the bathroom with the door locked when it happened, woke up against the wall Blair witch style LOL

Well not sure if it'll work for you but I've been sick for a few weeks(fighting an infection) and Ollie hasn't been getting as much exercise... What really helped was tossing a ball for him and playing tug... Also maybe get him a puzzle toy and some chews like bully sticks, etc to keep him occupied.

haha how terrifying that had to be for him, lol! glad you were ok, minus your nose!

And you know what...I probably should get him a few good chew things...that'll keep him busy. And he loves playing fetch/tug (more so fetch lately) theres just not much room in the house for him to really run, and he usually ends up bringing it by my bed, and rolling it under there. Each and every time. lol. He is so weird..Thanks for the help

I too had jaw surgery only I was about 12 and it was horrible Of course that was more than 30 years ago. The anesthesia made me sick but my jaw was wired shut so I couldn't throw up. I woke up with a breathing tube down my nose which they had to pull out while I was awake. It was just terrible. I still have nightmares...several days in the big scary hospital, then there was the 8 weeks of having my jaw wired shut, starting the school year unable to talk and having to drink all my food through a straw. Even now every time a storm comes through my jaw hurts where the screws are. Things have changed a lot since then but I am still highly sensitive to any anesthesia and will spend hours after any surgery puking my guts out.

You will be ok, I just know it God Bless You!! I told anyone and everyone not to give medication thru my last surgery. I went to Christian hospital the last few times and did not have a hard time waking up and they never gave more med then I needed

I remember so upset when I thought they were going to give morphine. Not that you have to have that but I had hospitials try to give it to me. I just had a bad accident one time I never want that again.

I am terrified of being put under... What If I'm conscious and they don't know?! What if I can feel everything but not talk? I know it's ridiculous haha.. But maybe like some of you said I can get an anti anxiety med for that morning.. The surgery should only be an hour, and ill be home the same day. I just can't wait for it to be done and to go home and snuggle with Berlin. I'm just super anxious until then they already gave me all the RXs for the surgery, I got Motrin and norcos, and on top of sedating me, he said he also will be numbing my mouth so when I awake I won't feel any pain... I just don't do pain well and am worried about like eating after and such. But hopefully the pain after is much less than what I have been going through the past two week from these teeth and the arthritis/TMJ in my jaw. Thanks for the support everyone, it truly does help!

Well I know where you are in this! I had three of my wisdom teeth pulled December 8th. Literally the day after my birthday. I'd had pain on my birthday and ended up as an emergency walk-in the morning of the 8th. I hadn't been to a dentist since I was about 9 or 10 because of a HORRIBLE experience. Seriously, they had me on nitrious and it was cranked. They also had to load me on novacaine. I have extra nerves in my mouth and I burn through the meds faster than most people. It was an experience I'm glad I don't have to repeat because two of the three were pretty difficult to extract and I was on soft foods and in some pretty intense pain the first week. the second week I was more functional but still hurting. The two difficult teeth actually had bone growing between the roots so he had to break that bone. Was kinda cool to see actually once the tooth was out. I know I did much better when the dentist and the assistant were talking to me about what they were doing.

I do still have that 4th wisdom tooth that I need to see an oral surgeon to yank. I'm avoiding it but I know it needs to be done. I do have some cavities I'm getting taken care of before I suck it up make the appointment with the oral surgeon. When its all done though, you'll feel much better. My dentist is really big on pain management and called every other day for the first week to check and see how I was doing. The other dentists in the office are really great as well so my fear of dentists has been eased slightly but I still get nervous and jittery.

Best wishes! You can do this!
