Root Canals and Laughing Gas

Today I had my root canal...or to be more accurate, part one of my root canal. I need to go back next week to finish it. As I type this, my mouth is still numb from the novacaine, though the laughing gas has probably left my system by now. Since i was given laughing gas however during the whole procedure I think my behavior was a little bit....off. I felt like I do when I'm hyper and giddy. Which basically meant I babbled a LOT. And when I couldn't (since they had my mouth held open) I started "singing" along with the music from the ipod I borrowed from CJ. Disney songs. The nurse started laughing at that. I also made weird faces when the novacaine started to kick in (I was already on the laughing gas for a few minutes before that). Overall wasn't so bad....though I really dislike being numb. And it's over. Till next Monday at least.
Add: Ok, once the novacaine wore off, not so fun. I felt like I'd cut my own my head off if I thought it would stop the pain. Instead I took advil and went to bed.

It's good you were able to sing through the whole thing. :)

Had oral surgery with laughing gas, too. I was insane...laughing my head off, in this weird deep voice that was *so* not me, and the funniest part about it was that in my head I kept thinking, "Gosh, CP...why you laughing? Those jokes are so not even funny..." but I just couldn't stop laughing. It was quite a comedy show for all those present (My mum, the surgeon, and 2 or 3 nurses.)

Laughing gas is way cool. I remember looking down at the Dr.'s gloves covered in blood and I remember thinking "COOOL! THA'S MY BLOOD!"

But afterwards....yeah...wanted to go strangle the Doc with my bare hands...or just decapitate myself... I feel for you, gal... Feel good...

Had laughing gas only once, don't remember it having much effect.

They gave you 600? If not, you can take 3 200s for same effect. Or drink half a cup of whisky.
