Well if you need them then I guess it is a good thing to do. If you are going to be awake I can't imagine it to be a real big deal. I think we all get a little apprehensive when we get any procedure done. I know I was when I got my first wisdom tooth pulled. The second one they had to drill and cut out and that one was freaky. Smoke was coming out of my mouth and it smelled awful. Good luck man. I am sure it will be fine. BTW your black print on dark blue is very hard to read. I thought it was blank at first.

I am gay and happy with that.
I love talking to people very open & willing to listen.
I am also glad to try help with questions or problems.
Hit me up for anything. I promise I don't bite.

The moderators are out to nail me, it was kinda a test.

Every post I make, it's wrong.

We are not out to get you. We don't change post styles unless you write in red. I'm not even using a site skin that would've made that noticeable. So if you want to make it harder for other users to read your post, be my guest. We won't stop you.

If you have an issue, please PM a staff member instead of posting about it.

That said, I'm not familiar with the medical procedure. Could you explain what it is? What kind of anesthetic are they using, if any? (Like, is it a "twilight sleep" like you might have when you have your wisdom teeth removed, or a local anesthetic?)

I get no Anastasia, just a shot in both ears to numb the ear drum, then they put tubes in them for drainage instead of buildup in my ear canel, I guess

That's localized anesthesia. I haven't had this procedure done, but I have had local anesthesia before. The shots are uncomfortable, as you can imagine shots are, but they do their job and do it well. The whole thing is scary, but it's scarier in theory than in application. They can and will keep your discomfort to a minimum. The most recent time I remember having local anesthesia, I didn't feel anything at all after the shot, and I'm terrified of medical procedures.

What @Elysium said I agree with.
1) nobody’s out to get you, mods/admins have a job to do that’s all
2) local is better than bein under. They might give you some lorazepam or somethingbto relax you before the local, so you are more comfortable. It’s more about making you comfortable than uncomfortable.
So let your surgical team know how your feeling ok?
As far as wrestling idk, I kinda doubt they’ll clear you for a physical activity like that so fast, but you never lmao
