Not so wise

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

I’m terrified. Tomorrow I get my bottom wisdom teeth removed, and I know it’s going to be awful. I really should’ve had this done 10 years ago when they recommended it then as a preventative measure, but obviously I’ve been putting it off. I know this is a bad move, but having been without medical insurance for a lot of that time, it wasn’t really a viable option for me. Now I’ve got the insurance and I have still be dragging my feet a bit. At least I’ll have the weekend to recover, and if the forecast is right, it won’t be good riding weather, anyway.

This week has not been a good one for riding for me. The weather has mostly been pretty good, but I have been busy with a geeky project that’s cut into my recreational ride time. It’s been fun, though, and hopefully there’ll be more projects in this vein.

    I know how you feel. I was born without buds for my lower wizteef but my uppers are present. One of them is cracked and impacted. It’s only a matter of time. 🙁

    I had one tooth pulled a couple of years ago. I was worried and nervous and almost skipped it. But, I went in and was surprised at how fast it went. There was a lot of prep – shots and things, but the actually pulling was all of 20 seconds. I was so worked up that I forgot to ask to save the tooth. It would have made a great earring!

    Had a wiztoof root canal in November, and it wasn’t as bad as I expected. Certainly, the head and spinal cord injury the following month was a notch worse.

    I hope you make it through procedure and recovery in nifty fashion.

    Here’s hoping you’re back on the bike soon!

    Hope it went well. Let us all know how you’re doing.

    I’ll bet it wasn’t that bad. And most importantly, don’t be wasting all those good meds for pain.

    Hopefully all of the worry was for little consequence. Get well soon!

    A trip to the dentist is one thing. But oral surgery is another. I held off like you did for one reason or another many years ago. I just wanted to ignore the growing problem. But I finally found the balls to follow through and have been grateful ever since. You will probably be grateful also. But that does not make it any easier before the fact. I can relate for sure.

    I had mine out at around 33 years of age and it was one of the most painful events of my adulthood. 🙂 They had to sew me up quite a bit and I couldn’t really eat that whole week.

    I’m sure yours will be blissful.
