So, I had the first root canal yesterday after the consult. He had a cancellation so I took it. It was really easy except keeping my mouth open for 2 hours. I have a jaw that can lock up so I get really anxious about it. But its sore some but overall fine. Now, I need a crown on that tooth. ( read here more money out the window). Then the other tooth is a problem, I’ll have this done in 2 appts. First to clean out the root canals and put in stuff to kill bacteria. Then next week do what ever you do with the root canal. The problem he said ,is there’s fractures in there and the root canal may not work. Meaning an extraction would be needed. Not right away but 6 months we’d know. So problem is I’ve been on biophsaphates for 10 years for myeloma. Not good . Osteonecrosis of the jaw is a likely scenario …. Can anyone say freaked out.
But I will persevere , I will as I’ve always done just get thru one day at a time. Do what is necessary.
Other than that and all the money this is going to cost, that we don’t have, life
In the new year is good. It’s warming up to 60 and sunny. I’m making a new bread today and tomorrow will bake it. I’ve got a load to go to the thrift store and feel pretty good. Of course I’m off DEX and rev till I see him next week so not too many drugs going in my body.
Off to the library today.
