Dentists dont listen
So 2-3 months ago I had some work done above #5. He had to numb the bone with several shots into the bone. One of those shots I think nicked a nerve. A couple days after the visit I had a bump where my cheek meets my gums. It was sensitive to touch from the outside of the cheek. shaving wasnt comfortable. After about 4-5 weeks, it seemed to have been healing and going away.
Yesterday I woke up and that same spot was bigger than it ever was. I saw no obvious inflamation in my face and the pain was moderate. I called the dr and he was booked solid. I gave the receptionist my details and description and told her to ask the dr what todo. About 4 hrs later, I called back for an update and she told me:
"The dr doesnt wanna perscribe any oerscriptions because he doesnt want you to make a super bug unless you are showing inflamation"
Well, I kinda wanted to laugh at her cuz you cant make a superbug in a week in one person. Mutations are instant.... idiots. ANYWAYS. I told her "thats actually why I'm calling, I;m starting to puff up" so they called in penicillin.
Penicillin?! Well, I hope this works, cuz levequin woulda been much better AND easier. penicillin 4 times a day for 7 days, ugh. levequin 1 time a day for 5 days.
So... the pain.... it started last night. ibuprofran, stopped working around 4am. Vicoden is doing its job. Thank god this same dr perscribed that to me b4!
So the moral of this story is, when you complain about a problem, make sure it gets resolved and dont wait for it to heal, it might not :)
