I was really angry when I found out I had breast cancer. I was scared to death when I found out I would have to undergo a year of chemo, and radiation, and hormone therapy for 5+ years. But what really ticked me off was being told that, before it all started, I had to go to the dentist and have my teeth cleaned. Come on! Isn’t cancer fun enough? Like a lot of people, I’m a dental-phobe. But in my case, I can only go if I’m completely sedated. Luckily I found a dentist who prescribed a great cocktail of valium, halcion and something else I’d never heard of. I took it an hour before my appointment and I guess it worked because I don’t remember a thing. My pearly whites are plaque free. Now, if I could only take the same cocktail and wake up in six months – after chemo. That would be a good trick. Instead, its going to be a marathon.
