toothache – part 3 – the loss of pain

Well I phoned the dentist this morning as the pain had not subsided and the he said by the end of the third full day of taking the anti biotic’s the pain should start to subside, well that is about midnight tonight. But since about mid afternoon the pain has been subsiding and has continued to become less as midnight approaches so it looks like he was right, would of been better if he had told me that though.

Assuming there is no nasty return of the pain, I will probably go for a ride tomorrow, not sure where yet, not given it any thought all week so will decide when I get up tomorrow. Got to do something to help with the weight loss as I have been eating all the wrong stuff (hole bar of fruit & nut again) for the past week.

Music, I consider myself having a wide and varied taste, I am currently listening to Pendulum, I have three of there albums, there you go showing my age I meant CD’s. I am happy listening to TRex and others from the era of Glam rock along with rock groups like Led Zeppelin and Santana, through to the modern bands like Klaxons and everything in between with the exception of those X factor type manufactured crap. Does anybody else have an eclectic taste in music?

toothache – part 2

The official line is I have an abbesses under a rear upper back tooth, I have been on Anti Biotic’s for a couple of days now and to be honest, there not a lot of difference in the pain, especially if I don’t take my pain killers. I am not enjoying this at all

Yesterday morning after I came back from the dentist I was falling a sleep at my PC so I have had to change the pain killers I am taking, back to normal paracetamol. If I feel there no change by midday tomorrow I am calling the dentist as I don’t want to be like this all weekend.

The prognosis for the tooth is either root canal work or have it out, which is to be expected, except for one small thing, I don’t like needles in fact I have never had an injection prior to the dentist giving me a filling, I had two teeth out when I was a kid and they did that by gas, so god knows what I am going to do about those two options.

What started as a dull ache on Sunday afternoon has turned into a full blown gum bulging toothache today. I will be glad when I climb into the dentist chair tomorrow so he can have a look to see what is causing the problem. I am not expecting a lot, probably a course of anti biotic’s to kill the now throbbing infection I have in the gum\under the tooth. Then a return visit to resolve the issue.

Thankfully I have never had a toothache before and after this one I don’t want another one. When it started on Sunday I was prepared to ignore it hoping it would go away, but then I had this vision of it returning on Christmas eve, by Monday morning, with the growing pain I was convinced to arrange for the dentist check it out. It would not be so bad had it not been for the fact that I had a check up last Thursday.

Well last night weigh in was a non event as I never went, a throbbing tooth has a lot to answer to. I had planned to go for a ride tonight but again the dreaded tooth has stopped me. I am currently sat here falling a sleep from the combination of tablets I am taking, if you could shake me I would probably rattle.

Had a bad daddy moment earlier today, I was working from home today, here is what happened

3:45pm the phone rings

me: hello

caller: hello is that Mr Henley

me: yes

caller: It’s Kingsley Primary School here, your son is waiting to be collected…………

me: OH SH*T!

I was supposed to collect him from school at 3:15 and I had completely forgotten. Ten minutes later I am collecting a rather grumpy son from school, apparently I owe him now……..
