Hello :) I got a concussion on Thursday, April 27 and I am scheduled to have my wisdom teeth removed this coming Thursday, May 4. (I still have a mild headache but I am willing to lie to the doctor because there is no other time in the next few months that I can have the operation.) If I recently got a concussion, am I still able to go under anesthesia?
First off were you diagnosed with a concussion?
Did you suffer a blow to the head or was your body/neck shaken violently?
Next did you go to a clinic or hospital and get properly diagnosed with a concussion?
If you did get diagnosed with a concussion what were your symptoms? You said you still suffer from a headache. Do you still have any other side effects? For example are you suffering from dizziness & improper balance? Are your eyes dilated and both of equal size?
All of these serious and common symptoms need to be addressed again by your doctor especially before you undergo anesthesia for removal of wisdom teeth.
If it were me I would play it safe and get checked out again before undergoing any surgery.
Four more months is a short time to wait in return for the rest of your life.
Lastly, it's never a good idea to lie or withhold information from your doctor. It could be very detrimental to your health.
Hope you make the rt decision?
