Tucked in, and resting....finally.

I called my dentist's office first thing this morning and told them I needed some help.

The nerve pain from the dental work I had done two weeks ago wasn't getting better. They sent me straight to a root canal specialist for a consultation this afternoon.

To my surprise, the doctor offered to perform the procedure right then and there. I emerged 45 minutes later (and $350 poorer) with a prescription for Percocet, a note excusing me from work for the day, and a tooth that I hope is done hurting!

So now I'm in bed, relaxing. I took a Percocet and it's pleasant to just lie here listening to the rain and enjoying the feeling of not hurting anywhere for the first time in two weeks!

  2. Such a relief when it's all over! I had a tooth abscess a couple of years ago and eventually had to have a couple of root canals so I know what you've had to go through. Not nice at all.

    1. It's been a rough experience. This morning I had a headache and was nauseous from pain medicine. I'm ready for this nastiness to be over. :(

    1. I hope so too. I actually had two deep fillings and they did a root canal on the one that was obviously causing the most trouble. I'm praying that the other tooth won't need a root canal, too. :(

  5. Hopefully, you can now go on holiday as planned, and will be painfree for good!
    It's good that the dentist did what he had to do immediately, so you did not even have time to think it over... ;-)
