>After 3 failed rounds of antibiotics to treat my Dental Hell, I went back to the Oral surgeon yesterday.
I still have an infection but the dentist decided to try to finish up the root canal anyway so he could seal the canals up and hopefully after my FOURTH round of antibiotics in the past month, it will get better now. The surgery took 3 hours because there were all kinds of complications. I got about a dozen shots becasue my body metabolized the Novocain very quickly so nothing stayed numb for very long while I was being worked on. Last night was rough, the pain was relentless and the right side of my face is very swollen. I am still very sore and feel a lot of pressure up there, but hopefully I will be turning a corner on this thing soon. I have a temporary filling right now because they are still not sure if the tooth can be saved and when I go back we will discuss what to do next from the following options:
- I may need a new bridge since the one I have is very damaged and no longer fits properly now
- I may lose the tooth anyway but the dentist says he may be able to save half the bridge which will mean I only lose 2 teeth instead of four
- I might be able to get away with just a permanent filling over the surgery tooth
A big part of the decision making process will involve how much it costs for parts and labor.
I am still sick, including all over body pain and just being wiped out, which is why I have not been blogging, but hopefully now that the surgery is done this new round of antibiotics will do what it is supposed to do so I can reclaim my life and get back to doing what I love, which is writing for all of you. I just have a hard time concentrating right now.
So that’s what’s going on with me, I am sorry that I have not been writing the way I normally would and hope to get back to normal as soon as possible. Oh, by the way, while I have been ill, this blog broke the quarter of a million page views milestone! Thanks for reading!
