Being as careful as I am, I told him no to the propofol anyways and we used a different anesthetic. Just thought I would pass along the info.

Thanks BC2007 for the list - I am sure I am not the only one who appeciates it. Have a great day

My DD goes tomorrow am to get her wisdom teeth out. Even when I know I've checked everything I can think of, I find myself still wondering. And pacing.

Thanks Susan! :huggy back @ ya
We just got back. Everything went well. She's resting now. I guess the pain will set in when the freezing wears out. Thank goodness she can have the meds, although I always worry a little with anything new. She once reacted to pulmicort (we think that's what it was) @ the hospital although it was supposed to help her asthma it put a real scare into us.-me & the emerg. staff.

It's nice to know someone's thinking good thoughts. I'll pass them on to her. I'm glad it's over.

Michele

p.s. she brought her teeth home - only 3 - apparently she's more evolved although I wonder, since she's thinking of jewelry

Glad she's doing well. What's the going rate for wisdom teeth, anyway?

Hmmm, I never had my wisdom teeth out...I either have a big mouth or no wisdom! :freak

I'm glad all went well, uneventful is the word we usually hope for in our home. Anything other than uneventful usually means 'drama' and that usually means something not good! So on that note, I'm glad the everything went smoothly with no hiccups for your DD.
Hopefully you both can get some well needed sleep now and unwind. :huggy

I just wanted to make a comment on propofol. I had my wisdom teeth out last week and went under general anesthetic. I explained my egg allergy to the anesthesiologist, and he said that the egg in the drug is not the protien

-he's right-its egg lecithin-so just as people with severe soy allergy can tolerate (generally!) soy lecithin so do those even with severe allergies to egg. We use it in ICU to sedate our pts. even those with egg allergy.
Re egg in flu and MMR-flu shot is always contraindicated for those with severe egg allergy-MMR is not-the risk of reaction to MMR is deemed so miniscule that the risk of complications from contracting either measles, mumps or rubella (brain damage, pneumonia,death etc) is considered a much greater risk.

Thanks for sharing this, I didn't knew about this drug. I have just looked it up and we have this in Denmark too and I am very much allergic to eggs (anaphylactic).

Hi,

Today I called the medical company producing this drug in Denmark, and they told me that if I have a severe egg allergy, I shall not take the risk with propofol, eventhough it is not made of the egg-protein.
