I went to the dentist yesterday for an extraction of my upper two teeth, so I thought. I waited in the lobby for an hour and a half to be called to the chair, that office is usually pretty busy but I never had to wait that long. I sat another half hour for the doctor(oral surgeon) to finally even speak to me. He looks at me and asks me how I am. He looks at the x-ray and tells his assistant he needs a new one. So I get another x-ray done go back to the chair and wait another 20-30 for anyone to say anything to me. In the mean while, I see the oral surgeon pacing back and forth behind me. After the new x-ray arrives he looks at me again and asks me how old I am? Why's he keep asking me my age? I don't understand this. So right before he gives me the anesthesia, he says "Okay, honey, this isn't supposed to hurt. Let me know if it does. Okay honey?" Of all the years I've been to any doctor's office, I've never once had any of my male doctor's called me "honey", "baby", "sweetheart", etc. I thought that was pretty inappropriate. He sticks the needle in the back of my mouth, usually when they give you the anesthesia they hold the needle in one position. This doctor pulls the needle out just a bit, it still being in the back of my mouth, and repositions it. At that point I'm feeling pain. More than a prick or a bee sting. The damn thing hurt! Enough for me to start tearing up. I was practically crying by the end of the first shot. He gives me another shot on the other side and I can feel him rest the syringe on my teeth. I could feel it leaning on my teeth. This time he's twisting the needle around, probably because he didn't get it at the right spot. So that really hurt! He does this about three times on each side with two different needles. He leaves, waiting for my mouth to get numb. After 10-15 minutes I realize the bottom of my mouth going numb but not the top. I'm waiting there for another 30 mins. for the oral surgeon to come back, when he does I asked him what teeth exactly he's supposed to be pulling out. He says "oh, your wisdom teeth" I was pissed! No one told me about my wisdom teeth getting pulled. I mean, I know they had to be eventually but my ortho specifically told me that my top teeth would be getting pulled. So I ask him "what about my top teeth?" he goes "Oh, you want that taken out too? Here, let me numb you up again". Effff that! I tell him "I don't want to go through with the procedure. I want to leave" I tell him this 3 times before he finally lets me go. He's telling me "no honey, don't be scared. i'll numb you up again and you'll be okay." Still calling me "honey"!!!!! He says "would you want to do this another time?" I says "I'll have another doctor do it". He then asks his assistant to reschedule me and I tell the fricken assistant to disregard what he said cuz I will be going to a different doctor. I walked to the car where my husband was waiting and I just started to cry. The whole thing upset me. The 1 1/2 - 2 hour wait, the fact that no one was telling me what was going on, how the fricken anesthesia really hurt, how the stupid doctor kept calling me honey and wouldn't let me go when I insisted I wanted to leave. I want to know what you all think. Am I overreacting? Was it wrong of me to walk out the way I did? I wanted to speak to the manager but my mouth was numb and could barely speak. To top it all off, after the numbness wore off my jaw was sooo sore. It's actually still sore now. It hurts when I open and close it. *sigh* There've been so much going on with the kids and the DH, I woke up this morning thinking my reaction was completely out of emotion. Would you have waited as long as I did? Was it appropriate for the doctor to call me "honey"? Shouldn't he have immediately let me leave when I told him I didn't want to go thru with the procedure? Should I be this upset?
