DD just had her wisdom teeth extracted today. Boy is she CRANKY. Did the anesthesia make your kids cranky?

She's not usually like this, but between dozing off from the meds, she's a real sour little pill.

  • I doubt it's the anesthesia. Her mouth probably hurts! I remember having my wisdom teeth taken out, and it hurt so bad, I couldn't eat anything, and the pain meds only do so much. Let her be cranky and baby her as much as you can til she's feeling better Momma :)

  • I know it makes me bitchy. My kids have yet to go under.

  • my kids haven't and I never got cranky cuz of the meds but think about it you just had teeth taken out it hurts like the dickens you can't eat or drink certain things the way you used to temporarily. and you have gauze in your mouth which to me was just annoying. It might not be just the meds maybe just annoyed with the situation. but it will pass and then everything will go back to normal.

  • Of course she is cranky. That FREAKIN hurts! I remember when I had mine out that was the most amount of pain I had ever been in. Just hug her and treat her like a queen. It is just for a couple of days.

  • She's well medicated and says there's no pain...but she is a little loopy, though she seems to think she isn't. It's kinda cute...but she got really angry when I smiled at her, "What's so FUNNY! Are you laughing at me!!"
    Uh oh...I think she's awake again.

  • No, it doesnt matter if you are medicated, it hurts! I would be cranky if I was going through that and someone was laughing too!

  • It hurts. You try it and see how you feel when someone cracks a joke while you are in pain. I bet you bite someones head off!
