One day, I'll get to bite into a delicious steak or sandwich. But, as I found out yesterday, it won't be for a while. Yesterday I was driving and found that something just didn't feel right in my mouth where all my surgery occurred. I was right. After checking things out, I found that one of my grafts had come off.
So, after calling the Periodontist, we found that there is nothing that can be done and that the doctor isn't in till Tuesday. (which is when my scheduled appointment is anyways) I'm suppose to go in to get my stitches removed, but due to trying to remove them last week, I have swelled up a bit again and that hasn't gone away as of yet, so I don't know what they'll do. They said over the phone yesterday that they'll have to just redo that tooth. Yep, you heard me, MORE SURGERY.
I went to bed last night with a pit in my stomach and this morning woke up with a boulder in my stomach. This has been such a traumatic situation and i'm so ready to be done with it. With this additional surgery will come the same diet i've pretty much been on since my wisdom teeth came out mid December. Very soft foods and liquids. Wahoo! I'm pretty annoyed.
If it wasn't for the fact that my blog has become my journal, I wouldn't spend this much paper space on this annoying subject, but for posterity sake, you all get to endure my rants. :-) Apologies all around.
