Usual turkey legs and eggs.
We are home today, husband is off and I have a wisdom tooth extraction this am. Eat all first. Later, it's all smoothies and soup for me.
My view from where I'm sitting!!
What's the possibility of me going to work.
Ooh they called me in already at 9.30am. Wish me luck.
5 mins post wisdom tooth op.
Should I go back work now??
Time check 10.20am.
Actually I find her wound looks very clean.
Arrived office at 11.00 am and prophylacticly pop 1 tab of 4mg dexamethasone and 1 tab of120mg arcoxia.
Left for lunch at 12.00pm. Round of introduction with our new MD and acting GM and some short introduction of our roles and our challenges.
Had quite a yummy lunch of cod teriyaki with some sashimi and Alaskan crab meat chawan mushi.
At about 2pm I felt some pain coming.
Quickly pop 4 tablets of seriopeptidase (Danzen) to reduce the inflammation.
Pain came about when I put on my Invisalign after the lunch!!
Had some issue to settle at work after lunch meet up with out new medical director.
Hence I'm only leaving now at 3.30pm!!
Feeling a bit hungry from the combo of pain and maybe the realization I didn't eat that much in lunch?
Going to join hubby to get some food…preferably something soupy.
Rendezvous with husband for some soup n coffee.
Time is 3.45pm.
Got la pain abit already!! I think got some swelling also @choopeechu CC: @xiive
Ahhh never taste so good. Dunno y so hungry.
Went into the operating room at 9.30am.
Asked dentist if I could possible go back to work today, she told me its up to individual pain threshold. Did not push her on it and will see how it goes. Expected the worse.
Had some discussion on the removal process, signed the consent form (it is after all a surgical procedure), expected side effect etcetc. Off I went for an X-ray.
First, they lay sterile cloth on the back of my head, chest and another cloth wrapped over my eyes.
Yup, you read that right! It's like a turban, but over my eyes. Luckily makeup didn't smear ah! Haha.
She then proceeded to inject local anesthetic on the gums. Took less than 5 mins for the full effect of the LA.
She then told me she's now doing an incision on the gums to further "view" the tooth. And then, she proceeds to saw through my teeth to break them apart for easy removal.
My tooth was in a perpendicular position to the other teeth, so there is no way of just plucking it out.
The 😱😱😱 part.
I felt a little tugging (as expected) on the surgical side. She informed me that she will be clipping/cutting the teeth for easy removal.
So she was clipping and sawing intermittently.
I was bracing myself for the last hard yank and pull, but it didn't happen.
Conversation between me n her whilst the above was happening (one-sided la cos my mouth was occupied)
👩🏻(dentist): Wah your teeth is pretty hard huh….*clip clip clip*
💃🏻(me): oh hehe *thinks to myself maybe my all meat diet
Helped in strengthening the teeth*
👩🏻: Wah u got 3 roots, your case pretty complex ah. This may take a while.
💃🏻: *oh shit expecting the worse*
👩🏻: oohhh quite difficult. Today your case is the most difficult in 2 months I've encountered!
👩🏻: your case is my top 20 most difficult in my career!!
💃🏻: nervous laughter….*sure later I will be comatose already la from pain*
Then I was still waiting for the excruciating pain from the final tug to release the tooth…
But it didn't come!!!
In fact she promptly told me
👩🏻: Ok we are done!!!!
Wahhh. Then she made some stitching and told me to come back in 1 week to remove it. Undid the turban covering my eyes and gargled.
Said my thank you and my byes, took a selfie and posted as the above 👆🏼. Paid for my painkillers, collected my MC and out the door I went.
It was OK! Much much better than I anticipated. During the whole process only felt some pressure from the clipping, but that's about it!!
