So I have made it through one hurdle. Monday’s dental work. The dentist filled one cavity and then took out six old silver/mercury filings and replaced them. I was in the chair for an hour and forty-five minutes! The dentist and assistant could not believe how well I did. I was like Please, I have chronic pain, this is a walk in the park.
And really it wasn’t too bad. The novacaine shots hurt the most and then at around 9 p.m. that night when everything completely wore off the pain was pretty bad but I just took 3 expired (not recommended, kids!) ibuprofin and that relieved it. Yesterday I laid low, I was tired from the dental work and my Costo was bothering me.
Today I had my acupuncture and I think I feel some relief. It’s hard to tell. One thing that is a bit upsetting is my doctor is dead set against narcotics, when three years ago she was prescribing them to me! I wonder what has happened to cause her opinion to change. I don’t care what she says, my legs do feel better with percocet, they just do!
And today I am prepping for my colonoscopy tomorrow. As of tonight I am weak, queasy, shaking and trying not to soil my underwear. I just wish it was all over.
I was really disappointed not to be a part of the Silicon Valley Moms Blog’s topic day on Healthcare Reform, but I just haven’t been on my game this week to write something powerful for that. I was also really sorry that I missed my regular Tuesday theme of Tuesdays With Tyler. I hadn’t missed one yet. This is just a really bad week between the dentist, the colonoscopy and the usual pain in my calves along with my Costo flare.
On that note I will close. I just wanted to check in with ya’ll. Good health to you.
