A drug induced coma
That is what my 4th of July will consist of. Gimme the remote control & pass the Norco please!
About 4-5 months ago I found out, through a routine dental check up, that the jackass of a dentist I went to at Castle Dental 6 years ago LEFT A FILE IN MY TOOTH when he did my root canal!!!
I'm sure right about now you're all thinking, "Excuse me... what the fuck???" Yeah. So was I. And, I Googled it... &, well.... apparently it's more common than one would think.
So, my awesome dentist, who I love & adore, tells me about this & asks if it's bothering me & I said that it's hurt a little from time to time, but always goes away. And he says we'll need to do something about it, but if it's not causing immediate pain I could have my other little cavities filled & wait til after my surgery (I had unrelated surgery in March) to deal with this file issue. So, that's what I did.... I waited... & then, last week, it started hurting, so I made an appt for Monday (yesterday). Only, then it started hurting much worse over the weekend (why do dental emergencies ALWAYS occur after hours?), to the point that I went to the ER just so they would give me something for the pain.
And now I am scheduled for oral surgery on Friday &, in the meantime, I'm taking penicillin, ibuprofen & Norco multiple times a day & can only handle "eating" smoothies, soup, jello & yogurt because chewing or talking too much leads to teeth knocking together, which leads to excruciating pain.
Soooooooooooo........... yeah............ I don't have to go to work or school tomorrow & I intend to take my full dose of pain meds & pass the fuck out all day! Hope the rest of you have a wonderful (safe) holiday!
