I'm a dental student and this summer I work for a dental surgeon in his private clinic. Today we were supposed to work with a patient, who we screwed in implants into his maxilla bone. I was assisting him but in the end of the procedure, I felt dizzy, pale in my face and I started to feel like I will crash down to the ground soon. I couldn't even manage to be stable on my left hand to cut the suture either and he probaly thought that Im a noob who cannot even cut a simple suture (even though it's not my right hand). The moment I felt like I couldn't stand up anymore, I asked him politely that I didn't feel well and had to go to the bathroom quickly. He accepted and I rushed into the bathroom and crashed down to the bathroom floor cause I almost fainted. After 5 min in the bathroom, I went out and ate a chocolate bar and drank some water. I felt immediately better and now I suspect that I might have diabetes type 1 because I'm a young & slim person and this has happened to me before when the glucose level is dropping too dramaticly. Anyways, back to topic: I came back to the operating room and explained for him that I might have diabetes (even though I never went to a doctor and check before). Do you think that he might thinks that Im lying and made that up or not? Im now a bit paranoid and scared that this situation will make him to change opinion about me since before this incident, he always liked me and now maybe he doesn't like me anymore just because I'm "weak"? The reason why Im worried is because this is his private clinic and it's not a good image for the clinic that the assistant is not doing his job well. I seriously couldn't help that I felt so terrible in the end of the procedure, it was a lot of blood and I was so hungry also. What do you guys think? Should I feel worried or not? Could this be diabetes type 1 or maybe the reason why I felt dizzy is only because of blood ? But I have so much blood during all my 4-5 years in dental school already so I'm not the first year student anyways. I was also assisting 1 year ago a cardiovascular surgery and nothing happened that time at all.
