I'm home

UGH UGH and UGH! You know I heard stories from people Good root canals, bad root canals. Etc. Etc. Etc. For me it was HORRIBLE
I got over the shot fear real quick, since I got 3 and then she didn't think that was enough so I got 3 more. I have a small mouth, so she had trouble reaching all the way in the back.
Holding my mouth open for that long with severe TMJ
Hating not being able to breath or swallow feeling and being so numb up to my dern eye sockets I couldn't feel anything. I freaked out, but they never knew cause I was really quiet and really still. I figured if I was a bad patient it would take longer.
They tried the massage chair, which made my rear feel like it had carbocaine.
Im dizzy from laying there so long, Im panicky as hell still cause i can't feel anything.
Im just scared still. I don't know how long that stuff stays in your system for. It can leave anytime now and I'd be happy.
So since my mouth is so small they got 2 canals 100% drilled. 1 canal 90% drilled. Then they put bleachy crap all in my mouth. It was grody.
After that I go to the desk and they tell me my next appt will be 2 hrs. They have to take all the filling out, redrill the one thats not finished. Resterilze the environment. Put gutta percha up in the holes, then shape the tooth for the crown. Then another appt that will take an hour.
I swear.
I didn't like it, not one bit. Im glad this week is done. I Need a week or more to recover from that crap.
Happy Thursday all
PS on a plus note, i have to endure severe thunderstorms tonight. Oh joy and rapture.
