Recreational Drugs and Anesthesia
Hello, I am scheduled to have four impacted wisdom teeth removed this Friday, February 17, 2017. It is a non-emergency, elective procedure at this time. I am an otherwise healthy 30 year old male. I had a medical checkup and bloodwork with my general practitioner about 6 months ago, and everything appeared to be normal. During my consultation with my oral surgeon, my blood pressure was taken throughout most of the consultation, and no one mentioned to me that anything was out of the ordinary. I regularly exercise 3 days a week with no significant shortness of breath or dizziness. For my procedure on Friday, I am scheduled to undergo "twilight" anesthesia as explained by my oral surgeon. My question and high concern involves my recent recreational drug use and its potential adverse effects with the anesthesia (specifically cocaine). It will be approximately 5 days between a moderate use of the substance and the procedure. I will postpone if necessary.
