Just had the next step in my dental reconstruction done today. Definitely worse this time. I had over 15 shots in a two hour period. For some reason I was still feeling the pain. I was feeling ill before I went in (fever+ nausea). So we used very little nitrous- side effect from it is nausea. So I pretty much had to deal with it. Today was a gingivectomy, two crowns, and new temporary on my implant. So I have three teeth kind of glued together right now. I'm swollen and in pain. I have one more big procedure next month and then hopefully will be finished with the dentist for quite awhile.
I'm hoping to look/act somewhat normal when I travel to the Orphan Summit Conference in Dallas next week. Right now I look kind of like a combination of Octomom and someone who has had tons of botox injections in the lower half of their face. Oh yeah I have to use this crazy mouthwash stuff that stains your teeth. Not to mention the drugs they have me on. Wow!
He did agree to donate toothbrushes for my trip to Africa(that I will make sometime).
