General anethesia is nasty business. When I had my wisdom teeth out I was sick as a dog, and was miserable for about three hours before I managed to throw the heck up and fall asleep. After that I was better.
But everyone reacts differently, so you might be just fine. Some people don't even swell up afterward, the lucky bastards.
Nevertheless I highly - HIGHLY - recommend laying in some mint tea to drink iced and some high-ginger ginger ale as well, so if you react like I did your stomach won't feel quite so masochistic afterward.
Good luck! Prepare to pamper yourself silly, because that's what people post-surgery should do!

I've had no issue getting knocked out before. You mus have eaten something before hand. No eating for me the the evening on until the surgery.

I'm convinced it was genetic because my brother had his teeth out six months later, and we reacted so much the same that he vomited at almost exactly three hours post surgery, too. And then promptly fell asleep. Exactly like me.

The only thing I had to eat before the surgery was a "Valium," which they told me would make me feel goofy but didn't seem to have any effect on me at all--I was kind of disappointed.
