    got to have a general anaesthetic to have a crumbling wisdom tooth out. I hate going to the dentist and have had such bad luck with my teeth, despite looking after them carefully.
    The wisdom tooth in question has partially cracked and crumbled, and I just couldn't face being pulled around and aware of it, so I have plumped for a general anaesthetic. Just a day case so I have to be at the hospital at 7am, and should be home for lunchtime. The rest of the day will be sleeping. I am ok to stick with my packs as it is really a minor procedure. Just can't drink or eat after 11.45 tomorrow night which is no problem.

    I would go for the general too - not the sort of thing we girlys like to partake in!
    hope all goes well for you xx

    Oh poor you! I do sympathise!! I had to have a cracked molar taken out a few weeks ago - my dentist didn't give me the option of going to the hozzie cos he's a ratbag and it was foul!

    At least you'll be blissfully unaware of what's happening - bless ya!

    Hope all goes well, hun!

    Don't know rules with LL but on CD you cannot have general anaesthetic if on SS you need to eat before hand for a while.

    As this is imminent you must ensure the anaesthetist is aware you have been on a VLCD as this changes the viscosity of your blood additionally as you have had no solid food for a while it could affect how the anaesthetic works.

    Also on CD if you have a GA you cannot SS for at least a month.

    You need to check this out with LL and also ensure you let the dentist know.

    I always have GA when I go to dentist - even for fillings coz I am a wuss.

    Good luck with the tooth - I had my wissies out under general too.

    I've just had a very minor op under general, whilst on LL. The hosp seemed ok with it, although the nurses wanted me to eat before I was discharged. As I was feeling a little woozy, I agreed to some soup but it never actually arrived.

    My LLC had given me permission (reluctantly) beforehand.

    My OH wasn't convinced so as a compromise, I had my packs made up with fortified milk instead of water to give me extra calories, vitamins, minerals and protein. I also went up to 5 packs a day (happened to have some spares) for a few days before and after.

    Tonight will be my first weigh-in since, and I don't know what the scales will say. To be honest, I don't much care, health is more important.

    But, I did get the tape-measure out and I'm still losing inches. Also stayed in ketosis, weed on sticks religiously :)
