My Sunday writing 28.11. 2010

Had a bad toothache for the whole of last week and I thought I was getting old and all my teeth are going to fall off. Lucky me, it was only my wisdom tooth, it was slanting and the pain it was causing around that area was unbearable. I say the Dentist last week and she told me that I should remove the wisdom tooth and she told me it was kinda shaky and besides that the wisdom tooth causes more problems then being beneficial. I tend to agree with her and if you ask me I will recommend that you remove it. She couldn't do the extraction last week because I told her that I was on Claspirin, a blood thinner that I take after my CABG. So I had to stop taking this drug for the last 4 days, she didn't want me to bleed profusely after the extraction.
This morning I was at the Dentist and the whole affair of pulling out the tooth took about less then 10 minutes. First she gave me a jab on my gums, Anestassia so that it would be a painless procedure. It was indeed a painless affair, after that she used a plier to extract the tooth and voila before I  could realize it, I saw the tooth on the table. She gave me a gauze to place in between the gums where the tooth was extracted and she prescribed some pain killers and anti-biotics.
I had chicken soup with soft nice, all mashed up  by my wife along with mix vegetable for lunch which was about an hour after the extraction. Had a good nap in the afternoon and I was expecting the pain to set in after  2 hours of the wearing off, of the Anestassia, but nothing of that sort happened.


The moral of the story here is ....as you get older...you tend to lose some parts of your body....but the good part is that ....hey what the heck...I am still ok....still working with less parts...value for money...

If you had gone through a similar experience, please do share with me...

Hey, join the club. I am a veteran at the dentist's and I have had numerous teeth operations done, including wisdom tooth extraction. So I can really empathise with your experience!
