Don't sing Praises Just yet!

On Monday November 26, 2007 I went to the Dentist. He was going to finally do the root canal that I needed. I say finally because of scheduling conflicts this was my third attempt to have this done. If it was not done this day I was going looking for a different dentist.

The procedure was done painlessly and everything felt great. Tuesday morning no swelling very little pain. I took IB 400 mg. Wednesday once again no swelling very little pain. Thursday morning I thought it was starting to swell. I convinced myself i was being an alarmist and nothing was wrong. As a matter of fact I thought I should sing the praises of a Dentist who could do this procedure with no complications what so ever. Friday, PAIN, SWELLING. What is going on why is this happening now it should have happened Tuesday not Friday. Saturday, I looked like someone punched me in the face. No bruising just lots of Swelling and Great Pain IB 600 mg every 4 hours. I wrote down the times so I would not over medicate myself and on Sunday I call the Dr.

He call in a RX for 500 mg of Amoxicillin. I started the med right away. Today My face is still swollen the pain is more like pressure. So I call the Dr.'s office and got an appointment for tomorrow. They are going to remove the temporary filling and clean it out and then put in a new temporary filling.

The office girl told me not to press on it. DUH! that would hurt. I do not hurt me! If all goes will I will start singing prasies that the pain is gone but if not. Just watch the news!
