and so it happened

Yup, since last week I’ve been on medication to reduce my constant toothache, with some overdose of antibiotics. Now, that tooth is out, and I’m in immense pain.

I knew that my tooth was not in the best of shape, and definitely needed to be extracted. But this process itself was way too painful, and today I got to know how badly infected the location was. The tooth was jammed really badly, and required a 2 hour surgical procedure. The tooth itself was quite large inside, leaving a large cavity in my gum, thus needing filling and stitching too.

Now I can’t talk, and my gum is swelling really badly. To minimize the pain and infection, I’ve been asked to have loads of ice cream, and even apply ice packs. This goes on till tomorrow evening, then I have to switch to luke warm gargles at least 20 times a day.

And the root canal process is still pending. That is scheduled for next Friday. I hope this pain goes away quickly 😦
