OW! I mean, REALLY...OW!

I am not one to get too descriptive when it comes to my medical issues, etc, on LJ ormy Blogger Blog (Unlike some people on my lists.) But I thought I might share with some people, in case I have to disappear for a few days. I have been experiencing some moderate tooth pain for the last few weeks. This was usually alleviated with couple of Advil...no big deal. Um, Yeah,,,so Friday night, I started feeling what cannly be described as the most excruciating pain in my entire life.

Now, I have broken bones, had puncture wound, been badly badly burned by the fat f a myriad of animals (duck being the worst), but this is, without a doubt, the worst pain I have ever felt. So I went to the dentist yesterday, and unsuprisingly, I have to have my wisdom teeth out. Now this in of itself is not really the cause of the pain. No the actual cause is the massive cavity, and subsequently, the enitre exposed nerve in my back right wisdom tooth.

Needless to say, I was a bit perplexed. I brush daily, floss when I can. How did I miss it? My dentist simply replied that it is a really hard to reach tooth and not to sweat it.

So, I find myself actually looking forward to oral surgery. Will it hurt? Most certainly. Will it hurt this much? Not a chance in hell. Right now, even the Percocets aren't making a dent. If anything funny or interesting comes from the experience, I will let all know.
