My excellent record of feeling really good for so long has been shattered. Today I had to go back to the dentist due to a most uncomfortable night that involved ice packs and pain pills. He took the packing out to make sure the pressure had not built up inside again. It drained a little, but not enough to warrant that much pain. I am trying to give the antibiotic long enough to clear up the infection, but the chance still remains that the tooth right next door will have to have a root canal as well. My pain should be much less by now, but the infection was raging, so it may take a while. Now I'm worried about this getting in the way of my upcoming road trip to Hilton Head. I sure hope not! Where is dental insurance when it's needed??? Not in my name!!
