My update

So, it hurts. It hurts like shiz-nit. Ugh. I called the doctor yesterday because over the weekend I thought I had developed a tooth ache or something else. So, I wanted to get it checked. AND because I was out of my pain meds!!! I've had to double up the pills just to I can get by since early Saturday morning.

It turns out I had an infection where they attached the tissue on the left side + a blood clot on the roof of my mouth where they removed the tissue. Ouch.

It was painful! The periodontist had to numb the roof of my mouth (one shot) to push the blood clot out. As well as numb my left side (three shots) to remove some of the infection. However, apparently once there's an infection, you can't totally numb the area to remove all feeling. SO, I felt him scratching away the infection and removing some stitches. Yep. I cried. I balked like a baby! Haha.

It's official I'm one of those who says, "I'd rather give birth to a child than do this again." And I'm glad I went ahead and did both my left and right side at the same time. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have ever done this surgery again! Although, he did say mine was a rare infection that can happen . . . But doesn't happen too often.

Yep. It would be me. So. Today in on the road to recovery. I do feel less 'heartbeat' on my left side. But it still aches.

// On the bright side // Christmas is around the corner and I have completed my shopping!

'Tis the season y'all!

  1. Oh, no girl! That sounds so painful. What kind of surgery did you have to have? Hope you feel better soon!

  2. I had a gum graft last thursday morning . . . my gums were receding on two teeth both left and right side. Thanks! I hope I do too! I'd so much rather have another child than do this again. ha.
