Now, I can't do any physical exercise, get hot or have any citrus foods or drinks for a week.

 

I guess go get some hot wings and a beer.

 

I feel your pain.  I have had my share of that oral surgery stuff and don't envy you at all.  A week will be over soon and life will be good again.

Hopefully that will clear up your re-occurring abscess. Here is to a fast and pain free recovery!

Funny, I had the same problem with a lower tooth. Had it pulled yesterday. That should fix it!

What I can't remember is what the procedure is called.

Financial Rape.

Absolutely right.  It is legitimate theft.  :D

John, I am so sorry that you lost that tooth.  It was cheaper and less painful to loose a tooth.  But, I didn't want to purchase another bridge.  That would have been just as expensive.  Maybe, this tooth will now last me the remainder of my days.  :D

In my case, the cost of pulling the tooth and adding one to the partial plate was less than one third of the cost of a root canal. Unlike wood, money doesn't grow on trees!

Gator! Man, I sincerely hope everything heals up nice. Let's not do this again. Sorry for your pain.

The most intense pain I had was for a couple hours after the numbing medication wore off.  I think he gave me about 6 shots.  My face was swollen and my nose felt like a balloon.  He gave me some Tylenol #4, but it is all still in the bottle.  No pain during the night and I have eaten pretty well today.  They told me no acidic foods, but I like my fruit.  Sorry.  Taking my penicillin 4 times a day.  I have never heard of anything like this.  My fear was on the level that it was as I was headed to Vietnam, but had mentally conditioned myself to not give into the pain.  I touched it a few minutes ago and it is a bit sensitive, but it is going to get well soon.  Time to make lasagna, some Mexican food and feast.  I was hoping someone had experience and could tell me what the procedure is.  Anyway, it is very different and anytime someone hears about what happened, you just see cringe.  I guess I've lived long enough to be a tough old bird.  Thanks for the chat and sharing.  You are all very supportive.
