Today, I had my wisdom teeth pulled. I woke up right as the dentist pulled my last tooth. FML
Applejacks18 tells us more :
OP here. I was awake for about 2 minutes before they knocked me out again. My tooth actually broke on the way out so I heard the dentist debate with his staff whether or not he should just leave the root in. The dentist is a cool guy and even offered to buy me lunch sometime.

Same thing happened to me. The feeling of having your tooth ripped out and you can't do anything but lay there paralyzed is absolutely horrible. I had nightmares for days.

This has happened to me during a cholecystectomy. I later found out that red heads have a gene mutation that makes us less affected by anesthetics and pain medicine. I suggest telling any doctor from here on out that you've woken up before, just to avoid it in the future, OP.

I am a redhead and I am having my teeth pulled on Monday. My friend has already told me they sometimes break your jaw while whilst doing the op. I'm scared :/ lol.

Hopefully they will make a good will gesture on the fees, that must have been painful.
I had my wisdom teeth removed with local anesthesia. I prefer local when possible, less dangerous and as efficient.
