It would have been really helpful if you had discussed your concerns with your treating dentist .The common side effects of sedation are blood pressure and respiratory changes. Headache, nausea, amnesia are few other common side effects. Groin pain is unusual and may not be seen in iv sedation unless there is any catheter introduced through the arteries or veins in the groin. If you are still in doubt contact your doctor and discuss your concerns. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
I just underwent wisdom tooth extraction with IV sedation and was told the same thing by my oral surgeon. I did not have this side effect, however the comment appeared to be in all seriousness and I have found a few other sites mentioning it online. Hope this helps ease any concerns!
Oh thank god. I was just worried because I couldn't find any information on it! Thanks a lot!
What you probably experienced was something that happens when Decadron is administered through the IV. This is a steroid that helps with post op swelling.
