Pain, pain go away…

18 01 2007

Root canal work on a lower molar late yesterday afternoon. Had the last of the pumpkin soup and some jelly and yoghurt for dinner last night… After the anaesthetic wore off fully around 10:00pm last night, the pain was horrible. Took a couple of pain killers (not the real knockout ones – I finished them back when the tooth was infected), but they didn’t really help a lot. Must’ve eventually got to sleep as I was woken by the alarm. Tooth and jaw still sore – steak is out of the question as is crusty bread or anything else I have to chomp down on!

One nerve was removed – another one or two to go in a month’s time. I’m looking forward to that – NOT!

Ouch, ouch, ouch, I’ve had that done and it’s despicably horrible. Although I eventually opted for the knockout ones. I’ve a fairly high pain tolerance, except when it comes to dental work.
I’ve even been known to take pain killers before I get to the surgery as a preemptive measure.
I’m all for total sensory deprivation and backup drugs when it comes to dental anything.

Hope you feel better soon! 🙂

My sympathies! I hope you’re doing better now. I go to the dentist today and next Monday to get 3 old fillings fixed – in preparation for my first crown for a tooth apparently cracked on something in a salad. I trust the dentist and all. It’s that jaw ache afterward… shudder! I’m thinking “yoghurt” for dinner tonight. 🙂
