well, huge infection, makes you feel like HELL.....
:wtf:
Antibiotics makes me pukes
:puke:.......><     BLEEEEEHHHHHH........ makes my head aches......:puke:
Dentist made me pretty bummed , they  f*d up first rootcanal , so now the ensuing health issues i am having due to failing of said rootcanal and the fact that insurance won't cover it to be fixed , want me to go to a specialist , tho more than likely they wont take  insurance either so instead want to extract it.... :(
*SO MUCH FOR QUALITY DENTAL CARE *
FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF


While I am thankful for all my blessings......
will be extremely grateful when i feel better......

:O_o:  so ... whoa....
Haven't been on much  lately (KC) ,  as after my extraction on the 3rd of this month, was feeling pretty crappy :omfg: so when the rest of the stitches just wouldn't come out for me and its been a few weeks , got in for a post op appointment yesterday.... and  dr. says whoa:-?... those stitches should've dissolved and come out... and the extraction site should be closed over, well lets take a look.:sherlock:...
after taking a look says... yeah we definitely need to take those stitches out cause the stitches alone not falling out can cause problems ... and get You feeling better.... so I get put on  high dose course of antibiotic:pills: ... some pain relief:pills: ...
the Nurse  goes and removes the stitches:cry: and says she is going to just irrigate the extraction site cause it looks a bit strange to her.:o.. So  irrigation begins and the nurse and I both are perplexed as what looks and feels about like gravel comes out of extraction site :-?.... I am like wow.:disbelief:.. that wasn;t coming out when I did my rinses  , and it tastes/feels like either filling  or gravel....
The nurse says " I have never seen that before.:disbelief:.."  and continues to irrigate ....
until all was clear .... BOY did it hurt  but am glad it was done....
SOOOOO hopefully will get better now.... finish healing ...
....and perhaps the holidays will be a little merrier  for Us....
Hope the holidays are great for everyone else , and that the new year is wonderful as well.Take Much care all and have Safe holidays.


Utterly Unexpected....
Journal Entry: Fri Sep 30, 2011, 4:46 PM

Note Me | Gallery


Normally...
When I have to go to a dentist....
IT goes horridly....
The dentist doesn't really care that I actually know what I am talking about when I tell them what I believe to be the problem or what the signs and symptoms have been, then they act as though it is my Fault.... and  so are then when they do work, they are  brutal and forceful , and I end up crying with blood all over my face ( unbeknownst to me)  and yes they've send me out from the dentist like this  much to the amazement of the other people in the dentists office as  well as  shocked  JC and Our children....,

But today...
I got a new Dentist 
Who was  quite understanding and upset that  poor dental procedure had caused Me to have to have so  many infections ,
so much  dental work ,and so many extractions , But He Actually listened when I said My roots where quite long and may be growing through my jaw, and that  prior dentists, as well as oral surgeons had had difficulty with them , So he went slow and  cut the tooth into 3 or 4 pieces and even then it didn't want to let go .... but when it was all said and done
that was the  nicest most compassionate  extraction anyone has done,
and they did not send me out with blood all over my face.
And It was a  very Nice surprise for JC and Our Boys,
That even though I had a difficult and slow extraction, I was not Crying ... Nor did I have blood all over my face.....

It Can be Complex.... Ventilation Musing

    Journals / Personal

Feeling pretty Emotionally and physically drained .... Yesterday was such a Long day....
It wore Us sort of Thin....
and In light of All the blessings and Wonderfully Awesome things that are going on In Our Lives,
That there are also these things That  feel sort of like something Gnawing at Your insides... It  has this sort of an Energy
And it  is sometimes hard  for the Energy to find the  the way out....

So... off  On a bit of a tangent We  meander ...

:omfg:....
So....
Go  to dentist Yesterday morning ,
it is sort of a funny thing.... Go in and explain what has happened with this infection since the extraction of the tooth last friday.... and the fact that Still have this infection
Lots of swelling and pain, It drained part into my lymph glands, was draining from extraction site....
And  had actually  decided to drain out the side of my neck just under my jaw, Much to the horror and disbelief of Me.... JC ... And Our Boys...
I tell this to the dental assistant who is going to do an x-ray so we can try and figure this all out,
but He looks at me:confused: in absolute disbelief :disbelief:that this infection could have drained outside  my face..... though I showed him where it drained from.:facepalm:

So I  just try to stay patient...
and wait for the x-ray and the dentist...
Dentist is the nicest Dentist I have ever had which is sort of an overwhelming feeling in itself, since that is something that is pretty foreign ,
Seems genuinely concerned that this is not getting any better, and has in fact gotten worse,:puke::headache:
Then he  checks the extraction site my gums, all that , and looks puzzled:confused: and says.... "The  extraction site and Your gums show absolutely no sign of infection"....
but then takes a cotton roll and dips it into the site and says "Oh.... My.... Yep that is infection Drainage right there".....:facepalm:
and then I show him where it exited  from my neck....
and he looks worried... Studiers the x-ray and asks...:confused:
" Do You have a  wisdom tooth there? I thought You had said You had had them removed"....
I explain that I only had three and  did not have one in that site,
and he says....
"Well either there is a wisdom tooth hiding there or You May have a Cyst in Your Jaw"....
So says  he is going to send me to a Oral surgeon,
and then says
" But if You start to swell up more or Your airway closes....
Go to the Hospital and get on  I.V antibiotic"....:faint::ambulance:

So... They make me an appointment
it turned out they had an opening later in the  day, so
We go into Oral Surgeon ,
and they take me back after having me fill out tons:work: of paperwork with medical history and all that ... :work:
even though they had just removed one of my teeth in december of last year...
which ironically was the tooth  that had been in front of this tooth  My dentist just had to remove....
and x-ray my whole mouth.....
then I wait for the Surgeon... Who comes in And says " Hey Beautiful Lady ( which at that moment made me want to cry.:cries:...
I sure am not feeling very beautiful  currently....
And   a bit uncomfortable to be greeted by a doctor this way)
Lets see if We can get You feeling better".... 
and proceeds to go over my whole medical history...
Of which I have left out  some  of  I am sure because...
I feel so Crappy and sick  and tired that it is hard to remember it all ...
Then He says... " so Why? are You here?":wtf:
I explain what my Dentist said.... and all I had explained to the dentist.....
Then he looks at the x-ray.....
Then looks in my mouth at the site, pokes... pushes and prods  to see if he can get infection to drain....
Then Says " the Extraction site And Your gums show no sign of Infection at all".....:disbelief::wtf:
And " I don't understand why Your having so much pain Really..." ( yeah... I'm only so swollen in the side of my jaw/ face and neck that its kind of scary)
So I Explain again :ashamed:
the part where My dentist had to actually dip a roll of cotton to see the infection.... (seems to have a hard time draining out, this is part of why it hasn't gone away)..

But  surgeon doesn't do that , so doesn't see the infection....
But says the infection wasn't just one type of infection that I had actually had a "trapped Infection that was fungal and  bacterial"  somewhere inside my jaw that had been trying to find its way out, so when i got the bacterial infection by my tooth and they extracted it, it opened a partial outlet for the infection to drain, but that it had probably been trying to find a way out for WE don't know how long ( which made me think back to the previous dec,
when a different oral surgeon  removed a tooth and cut my gums from in front of the tooth she was removing back past the tooth they just removed and then gave me a Million stitches,
i ended up getting an infection then because the stitches just would not dissolve like they were supposed to so finally when they would see me again i saw a different Surgeon , and his nurse who irrigated the site was as confused as me when this debris that looked and sounded like gravel or part of a filling came out of the extractions site Then told me She had " never seen anything like that" and "did not know what that was" but  between the two of us we decided it definitely wasn't pepper or any kind of seasoning... and that IS still healing , and it was done last decemeber before christmas)
  proceeds to tell me  He doesn't see anything , :ashamed:
"well ....except two teeth  that now have cavities due to the infection , ( in front of the teeth I had to have out...).
So Follow up with Your  Dentist cause he may want to do a root canal on those... or  just fillings"
At this point I start to cry.:cries:.. Because  This means.... Our insurance covers these things not, and if I go to the dentist they will say, unless you can pay we can only take them out....
But there is no cyst so He says "he doesn't see anything he would do surgery for , which he Loves to do and is Really good at..., so for him to say he didn't see anything to do surgery on is a good thing  so ....,
but  then   surgeon ends  on saying " However if You start to swell up or You have problems breathing ( cause the infection has drained into my jaw, ear, neck/throat, face) Go to the Hospital":ambulance:
So I go to leave and they pull me into the financial office...... Which  doesn't normally happen...:wtf:
So I get in there and there are 2 Women at different desks and the surgeons assistant begins to take me over to the lady farthest into the room,
who looks up from her desk at me ... and Glares at me As though I am worse than shit:trash:.....
And Says" I'm not taking care of that":trash::wtf:
at this point the other Women in the room , was looking at her Coworker like Why are you being such a bitch,
and proceeds to tell me in a kind voice that she will take care of me....:helpdesk:
At this point I  really kind of confused but the lady begins to explain that Our insurance won't cover My visit which was supposed to be an emergency visit but since the  surgeon didn't do anything ...
that it isn't an emergency....
So I owe 200.00....
So I ask if I can please go and talk with JC for a moment , cause we will have to figure out how we can take care of this.....
And I start to cry.:cries:...
And the Woman helping me looks like she feels really bad...
So I head out to the Office
And JC sees My face and is Concerned, I try and tell him I am fine, but ...
Am glad We haven't paid the bills yet this month cause have to pay Surgeon instead.....
At which JC looks confused as I felt......
so I say I 'll explain when We are out of here  cause I am feeling  pretty upset  and quite worn out and my face hurts quite a lot now after having  people poke push and prod  throughout the day....
I go Back to the financial office , and the  Woman asks Me  if we are going to be able to work it out, I say , it will be fine we just have to wait on paying bills ....
The other Woman kind of scoffs and the Woman helping me Looks really mad at Her, Gets me a receipt and talks a bit  walks me out into the lobby and says You know....
" We are neighbors... Kind of .... I sometimes walk my dog, with My kid, if You ever see Us You should come and say Hi."
Then "says You know... It is just nice to have another adult to talk to sometimes, Can I Keep Your Number  Just to call and talk sometime?"
I am not too sure what this all means
Perhaps she felt bad that her co worker acted like I am a leper or worse  because We are not rich...
OR perhaps she felt bad knowing that we actually live pretty close to each other and May not be all that different,
and yet Her co worker treated me Like I should not have even come into their office....

So then We leave and I begin to explain everything to My Family  on the way home
I  can't seem to stop  crying:cries: ,
  I apologize  cause I don't really know why I am crying I mean didn't have to have a cyst removed and hopefully  this antibiotic should get rid of this crappy infection ....
and  JC keeps Saying"  it isn't anything  for  You to be sorry for "
And I know that it wasn't my fault......
But  by the end of all that yesterday..
It had wore Me past my Limit....:sadangel:
And after having crazy chaotic dreams I cannot remember  and waking with  infection drainage filling my mouth the chaos of the energy yesterday caught up and needed to spill out....
So there it is condensed  a bit....




What was learned Today

    by KarmicCircle, Mar 28, 2012, 4:52:08 PM
    Journals / Personal

Once We got to the dentist's office...
and  they examined my mouth... Xrayed me... poked and tapped
and  then  treated me like i was crazy....

I have a VERY hard time going to the dentist.... Several reasons.....  in 2003  I had three wisdom teeth  removed... when  those were removed they broke the three teeth which had been directly in front of the wisdom teeth...
consequently  ... this then lead to a series of infections in my mouth, which then proceeded to cause a myriad of problems ...
the end result is... a lot of pain... people treating me extremely horribly and making assumptions about me... my intelligence... my lifestyle....
and how it was obviously my fault.... that  these problems  occur ongoing  still currently....

SOOO ... Go in to dentist today, as have been having pain, super sensitivity to hot... cold...  and air..
as well as the appearance  of some canker like sores ...
  it takes  almost a half an hour for the dentist ( whom i had never seen before)
he does not introduce himself ( and i am extremely uncomfortable around men in general..., especially since  i can't have JC accompany me in with the  the examining area)
and  as he meets my eyes, the look of distaste in his eyes was very apparent...
and i then feel extremely nervous.  and the feeling of discomfort increased as his  assistants one male, and one very young female intern  close in around me, staring at me with  similar looks on their faces...
i explain  the sore appeared and drained and had continued to increase in size  over the  last two days.
i then explained  my upper molar however was the reason i had come in , because its increasing sensitivity , and the fact that the filling itself feels as though it is seeping.

They all then exchanged looks amongst themselves... and  the sarcasm in the dentist voice  began to deepen as he began a series of tapping, poking the sore, them rubbing it , and feeling around  to the other side of my mouth , 
and then tapping all my upper teeth and  calling out numbers and asking me to say which number he was tapping, which by this time, not only was i feeling quite humiliated  both by the sarcasm , and the looks
but then
My mouth was so irritated  and was hurting so much, i could no longer distinguish which tooth hurt the most, because my whole mouth on that side was throbbing and as i was crying and told them this fact,
the tone turned so coldly sarcastic and cruel  when they told me they couldn't see anything wrong, or at least they did not see an infection, but i probably needed a cavity refilled in the tooth i had stated hurt, Though he said the part of my tooth that i said hurt couldn't possibly hurt because that is where the filling meets the tooth....
so i then inquired whether or not that was something covered by our insurance, and was rudely cut off and snapped at that it did not matter whether the insurance covered it or not, my options are to have it filled or have it taken out...
Then proceeds to ask me if i am taking any drugs prescription or otherwise for the pain...
I then explained that i had been taking regular ibprofen  for the pain  but had not today because when the sore drained i then began throwiing up  and my stomach was too upset to take any ibprofen ... The dentist then said, so You have been taking ibprofen because Your stomach hurts???
at which point i sit up and speak very slowly and loudly extra enunciating my words .... i had been taking regular ibprofen  for the pain  but had not today because when the sore drained i then began throwiing up  and my stomach was too upset to take any ibprofen ....
and then he proceeds to ask me how often i brush my teeth and as i am answering  i   brush 2 to 3 times a day ...  the dentist was too busy already telling me that if i only brush once a day it isn't enough ....  and what kind of tooth paste do you use...
i replied that i had been using sensodyne as recommended and he says yeah but how long... and how often...
i told him i everytime i brush for the last 5 or 6 months
He then asks if i have eaten anything sharp, at which point i laughed  out loud  a wry little laugh
explained that i cannot eat anything on that side , due to how many teeth have been removed there,  it just doesn't work out....

he then  launches back into so these are Your options... it doesn't matter what Your insurance Will Cover...
and what was i going to do, because they want to just fill it , not take it out, because they would sure hate to see me lose any more teeth....
and that not only that but then my partial would not stay in because that tooth is one  it hooks around, ( which feels like agony, with the tooth  hurting)
and then proceeds to say... however that may not work , and if it will have to come out anyway, so tell me What are You going  to do.

I said... well  if it is to be filled  we do not have money to do that right now....
so  will contact Your office when  i decide what to do,
at which time  was interrupted for dentist to launch into his tirade again about the cavity and if we have to we will take it out just to get you out of pain....

i walked out after standing up abruptly  and looking each of the people surrounding me as they backed away so i could leave
that I WAS SO VERY SORRY FOR WASTING EVERYONES TIME....
i made sure to tell them each individually while looking them in the eye and shaking each of their hands...
and then i made it  out to the lobby  to my Husband and Children  who had been wondering what was going on  because in the midst of it all i hadn't been able to fill  JC in via text how it was going , all i could say when he messaged to see if everything was ok, i  had to reply quickly.. not really....
so had to wait  through all that ,  made it out to the lobby, and am pretty sure the look on my face was somewhat startling  because i immediately started weeping openly  JC said  What is wrong, and i said i will tell You in the elevator....
only once i said that , it just started tumbling out of me , and i started shaking  and crying harder, because  they had been so utterly mean in the manner  which they dealt with me, and  treated me as though i was making it up, even though they said  i had  cavity which needs to be replaced or the tooth needs to come out....

and So I said that i will never go back there for treatment because a large portion of the work that place had done goes so horribly awry for me, and i end up with infections, and more problems, to be bounced around between new dentists and interns who come into the office , to have no one know truly the history  of how all these things came to be,
but to be treated as though i have done this to myself, or that it is terribly bothersome dealing with me when i reluctantly come in  only when i  cannot stand  the pain....

When i got home i called the dentists office to get the name of the dentist since he never did say who he was... and also inquired  how i could get my records....
I will not go back there...

because  That really hurt...

To learn Today  that People are really  cruel to You even in a place where people are supposed to help You....
When they think you are not intelligent,
That You must be on Drugs...
Or You are just plain making it up....

The other and possibly more valuable lesson i learned today...
is that IT WAS MY CHOICE  NOT  TO BE A PSYCHOTIC HOMICIDAL WOMAN EVEN IF THEY LEAVE A TRAY FULL OF SHARP DENTAL TOOLS IN FRONT OF ME ...
