Root Canal Tomorrow

Ive been in pain for two weeks. Tomorrow it's gonna be a scene right out of Castaway. Except with a Dentist, so it'll likely be even more traumatic.

The really sucky part? I have to go into work afterwards. And I'd rather have a second root canal.

So, y'know... Go away and leave me alone.

Work afterwards? My God, you are brave....why can't you just take the day? after all, won't you be drugged, miserable, in pain, and not cranked up to Soooper Maximum Joanie?

Work after a root canal? Ugh. I'd be doing my best Scarlett O'Hara on the sofa...

Hope it went well!!

My wife, who has a very high threshhold for pain, worked after her last root canal. I, well, I took vicodin and made the world go away until I couldn't stand the nasty drug-induced dreams any more and decided to bear my pain like the pansy-baby I am, lying on the couch and whining a lot.

Hope it goes okay and you recover quickly.

Never again! I went through a bunch of them back when I was young..but the teeth just started crumbling four or five years ago and now I have had to have dental surgery...twice..to cut them out and that time of surgery leaves one hell of a messed up jaw bone. I still have nine more to get taken out..two of which will have to be cut out because of the damn root canals..if I had it all to do over again I'd do it with a dentist who had a office over a bar and was drunk enough I could talk him into pulling instead of drilling..

I had a couple of beers last night to help ease your pain.

Thanks, all.

I did survive it and went to work later. I only took two Ibuprofens and kept busy. Later, at home, I had some stronger stuff, as suggested above.

:o)
