Ha!

Yeah, sometimes I get on a bit of a roll.

Life's too short, eh?

Well, spent the rest of the day after the last post happily doing yard work with my boy. Never thought edging and blowing and such was so liberating. I can even chomp my teeth together and make noise with them without lightning bolts going off in my vision.

Long live clove farmers...

Just my 2 cents

Thanks, you just taught me something. I've probably known maybe 13/14 people who have gone through dry socket with all the same results, agonizing pain. That's why I said what I said. Thanks for the info.

Hey, who says my pain wasn't agonizing...

I'm pretty tolerant of pain, especially when I am fairly sure that the hurting isn't causing any sort of additional damage. After knee surgery, the doctor had to tell the nurses to give me pain meds whether I wanted them or not cause my blood pressure was spiking up from the pain. I just don't see any big reason to be a whiner.

I spent Friday without pain meds cause I had to drive to the office and talk to an employee who had quit (after seventeen years of working for me) and was now crawling back wanting to beg for his old job back - or any job back, and I had to tell him in a coherent manner why I wasn't going to hire him back. I felt it was the least I could do for him before watching him drive off into the sunset to try to get a high paying craftsmanship oriented manufacturing job in this day and time. After the meeting, it was tempting to pop a couple of Mepergans but I really didn't want to be staring glassy-eyed with a stupid grin on my face as I drove my SL into the grille of a trash truck or something... When I got home, I feel fairly confident in saying that on a normal scale of pain, terms like agonizing and crippling and inescapable were applicable to the situation at hand.

I just hate to be one of the guys who raises their hand when the school marm asks who needs a little pain medicine.

Anyhow, I'm taking the 875 Augmentins 3x daily, 800 Ibuprofens 3x daily, and now that I have the magic clove oil I'll just be dipping little cotton tooth tampex into it every so often..



aaaahhhhhhhh.

I always like to read mcollinstn's post because of his insightful wisdom. After stumbling across that picture I was involuntarily forced to give up the pounder I just ate. Now I may have to put him on my ignore list for a while.

I'm still a good ways away from being able to eat a quarter pounder, so why should you be able to. That would be unfair.

If I ate one, it would pack all sorts of burger parts into my tooth sockets. Then I'd have to dig them out. BUT, then they'd be all compressed burger part pellets.

Sort of like little Burger McNuggets! Parts is parts...

Fries with your Burger McNuggets, sir?
Would you like to Supersize that?

Instead of a Happy Meal toy they could come with some Maalox and a little ziploc puke sack.

Am I onto something here, or what?

I learn something every day. Every time I learn something new, I realize how little I really knew in the first place!

I have learned way more on this board than I have had the opportunity to share (With any resemblance of authority). Finally a subject I know!!

That's vivid, I see you're taking full advantage of your perscription pain medication.

Damn,

I was hoping that it wouldn't happen to you, Mcollinstn.

Glad you have gotten some relief. The good news is, that you won't be in pain like you were a couple days ago any more.

The doc that helped me out was great, too.

I'm in my fourth week now. No more pain or soreness. Teeth stopped moving around. Now I just have to keep cleaning out the socket.

I really was hoping that you wouldn't get it.
As soon as I saw your post I said to myself.... no, no....

Aw hell. No biggie.

At least now I know that the pain is just an inconvenience and is not a sign of something counterproductive (secondary infection, growing pus pocket, teeth falling out, throat cancer, incremental damage from the wife slowly poisoning me over time, West Nile virus, sickle cell anemia, etc...).

As I mentioned before, I'm a trooper with pain as long as I know it is "just pain". Now I know that. The throat pain and ear pain and all that stuff was weirding me out for sure, until the doc told me that the brain just processes "extreme" pain over a wider area cause either the pain "signal" from the nerve regions is intense enough to "bleed over" to the other nerve "wires" to the brain OR the brain doesn't make sense of an intense level of pain from one area over time and spreads it out to make you do something about it (neuro guys still haven't nailed the mechanics of that phenom out yet).

So, now I just got to keep taking the meds for inflammation (and the antibiotics I plan to keep taking) and carry my little "kit" around with all my gear for doing a clove tampon "pitstop".

The giant holes in my jaws are a significant hassle.

I have a friend who deals in "synthetic skin" that is used for burn victims and stuff like that. They've sold this stuff to doctors for all sorts of weird applications like pecker enhancements, cosmetic surgery, trauma room stuff where horribly damaged internal organs are wrapped with this stuff to hold them together so they can heal...).

I'm gonna tell him to look into the possibility of applying this stuff in a dental application to fill the tooth holes so people can "get on with it" and not have to play excavator after every meal for a damn month of Sundays.

Might not lend itself to being a valid application - but I'm gonna turn him on to it anyway. Might be something they can "tweak" an existing product and make it suitable.

Insurance probably wouldn't spring for it, but I guarantee you I'd have paid an extra couple hundred out of my wallet for it.

hmm.
