My Nightmare Continues!!!!!
Ok, so you all know that the past 11 days I have had nothing but my share of oral catastrophe after another. This coming from the woman who before the 8th of October, never had a cavity, never had a toothache, never had the slightest hint that I had teeth, if it were not for their amazing ability to masticate all the freaking food I would put into my mouth over the years.
The saga continues sadly, I left work after a 14 hour day, lord was that NOT fun! I came home to grab some stew and head off to the gym. I was sitting with Alan and I took a bite of stew and whamo, something felt horribly wrong. I jumped up ran to the bathroom and looked in the mirror, my molar that he did the root canal on last Thursday, well let's just say half of the tooth was merely hanging by a thread onto my gum. It had completely split. I am panicked, all I can imagine is the excruciating pain that I had been experiencing for well over a week returning. I called the dental assistant at home, (she had called me one day last week on her cell) LOL so I had her number. I told her what had just happened and she said you will need to come in tomorrow morning at 7:45am and we will see what we can do.
It is not as painful as before, but my jaw is sore. I think from holding my mouth so still, as not to tear the tooth off! I am beginning to think that pulling this tooth would have been so much easier. But I really do not want to lose it!
So I am back to the freaking dentist today, for more numbing and drilling and lord knows what the hell else! I know I am being a big baby about all of this, and people go through this and worse with their teeth all of the time.
But for a dental pain virgin like myself, this has been a nightmare from hell!
I will keep you all posted!
