PT & Pulled Tooth

Feb 07, 2016 9:05 PM

I start PT on my OA hips tomorrow. They sure are giving me fits with the cold weather changes. Sitting even 15 minutes causes severe stiffness, but walking and standing causes pain. Lol. I hope the PT helps!

I also get a broken (root) tooth pulled tomorrow afternoon. It didn't dawn on me until last night that there's only a little skinny nub to grasp for pulling, because of the root canal they did 2 years ago (wasted money!). I'm wondering just how they're going to be able to get the tooth's root pulled without heading me or putting me to sleep? Has anyone else has a precarious root canal tooth pulled? If so, did it go well? Once it heals I'm getting a partial to replace it and 2 other teeth. Thanks for any advice or input!

Hugs, love, & prayers to all! πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸ’•πŸŒΌ

Newfibrogirl, thanks! It took over an hour to get the tooth out, piece by piece. He reviewed my xray before we started, and he showed me where the jaw bone around this tooth had started receding. He said it was a warning sign that there might be a problem because I was feeling pain Just as he thought it was going to come out easy the crown popped off, leaving the root embedded. It split into multiple pieces as he tried to get it out. Once he saw under the crown he stated he saw the crack in my tooth root, and the beginning of an infection. Looks like I got lucky getting it out ahead of time. My feeling is returning and I hope it's not going to be too painful overnight. But as he pulled on the left tooth my TM joint on the right was hurting. I'm just so glad it's over! I'd been complaining of pain in that tooth for over a year. πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸ’•πŸŒΌ

Omg... The novacaine has worn off and my whole left side of teeth hurts bad! Real bad! My face is swollen and there is a huge lump on the jaw where the tooth came out. I can feel where the stitches were placed too, like they're just now being stitched. It's been so long since I've had a tooth pulled, I forgot how bad it was. Ice packs aren't numbing any! I seriously doubt I'll sleep tonight. Doc didn't give me pain med because of my allergies and I have Tramadol. If pain gets worse I will be calling for enough stronger med for 2 days! My pain is a 10 right now, and my face is still not fully awake. Wishing everyone else a much better night! πŸ˜­πŸ™πŸ’•πŸŒΌ

Flappsy, it saddens me to hear that you're going through all this. I had several pulled that were level with or broken just below the gum line because my teeth rotted from the inside out from all the problems I have. It's a ducky thing and my mouth was swollen and ice didn't do anything but give me a headache. Please get some rest. As you can see by the hour, I'm still up. Have a bad cold, also RSD flare and my hands are swollen and bright red and hot and feels like someone is burning them with a blowtorch. Same with my feet and legs and part of my spine. I think the stress of multiple appointments I have to take Dad and Mom to this week and it all falls on me. It's ok, I'll get through but it's funny how the same folks who don't want me on vacation with them, expect me to chauffeur them around when I can barely walk. Now I just sound bitchy. Sorry... I just took some Aleve PM and hope I can catch some sleep.
Don't know how much I'll be on this week and how the heck I'll ever catch up when I do get back on... Feel better, Flappsy. Sending you lots of love, gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers for a speedy recovery. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜

I'm so sorry! Feel better and I hope you get relief soon!!!

Thanks everybody! It means a lot to be able to have friends who understand. I'm not supposed to be doing anything for 3 days and my hubby asked me if I walked out to check the mail... Uh, heck no! I was awake all night and all day today. The ice packs helping reduce the swelling but not the pain. It's throbbing and pulsing, but at least it's not going to the rear today. AlwayZ, thanks for the laugh... About being your parents chauffeur! Lol I'm wishing each of you a restful night, with hugs, love, & prayers for a better tomorrow! πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸ’•πŸŒΌ

Started the day with my crown coming off (5th time) while brushing my teeth. Immediately started feeling pulsing throbbing pain in back 3 teeth area (extracted one included). Called the dentist and they couldn't see me until 2:30. Went and had it permanently placed. Getting it out in a few weeks to replace it with a better material crown is going to be a tough one. This one is 17-20 years old and really worth in areas with sharp points in others. Got my money's worth at least. The doc said the pulsing throbbing pain is because the gun is still open at the extraction site. Just glad I don't have to worry about swallowing it in my sleep! Lol

Went to PT for my hips & knees. They really overworked me today because I'm having sciatica tonight. At least I can take it a little easier on the home assigned exercises over the weekend. πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸ’•πŸŒΌ

Wow, Take some pain meds and get off your feet..you had a hell of a day!Love ,Terri

Terri, you're so right. I took a muscle relaxer last night because when I got in bed the pressure on my tailbone made it work and my legs were cramping. I slept fitfully in and out but at least it's calmed down this morning. And thankfully the extracted area is almost closed and that pulsing pain is almost gone too! Have a blessed day everyone! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΌ
