Me & Neverland

Toothache Relapse!

Just 3 months from my wisdom teeth extraction and attempt to save my infected molar, I was back at NDC on 20 Jan.
I felt as if I almost ‘died’ on Sunday night. The pain was so intense that hubby had to send me to A&E when he came home and saw me crying and moaning on the bedroom floor. Seriously! The pain was worse than contraction coz there was no interval.. It was just pain all the way, and the pain triggered a headache too. I could feel half my face from head to chin in pain. I had to isolate myself in the bedroom so that Jamie and James need not see me in suffering. 
Dentist announced to me that my molar could not be saved and I only have two options: 1) extracting it or 2) doing root canal + crowning. She recommended the latter because she felt I was ‘still young’. She said I should not deprive myself from eating normally so early.
She is a very sweet and gentle lady like my dental surgeon. I always feel the female dentists in NDC are motherly, pretty and gentle. I feel at ease and safe with them. I remember my surgeon would tell me ‘poor thing, hope you get well soon k?’ coz I was required to change my dressing everyday after my wisdom teeth surgery, due to some complications.
As the wait list for root canal is 18 months long, Dentist suggested I removed my nerve first. She assured me that I will be able to last till my root canal surgery, after the nerve was removed. So now my right bottom molar is hollow and without a nerve. I no longer feel pain when I drink room temperature water too.
Next review will be in Feb, just before my Taiwan trip. If things go well, I will then get a permanent filling for the next 18 mths. If not? Let’s hope there is no ‘if not’! Because currently I don’t have any backup plan! Hahaha… And of coz I will like to eat heartedly in Taiwan!

Speaking of Taiwan! Yvonne and I are so brave! Less than one month from our trip and we have only confirmed lodging for the first two nights! 😛 Share more in another blog post! Really happy I finally resume my free and easy trips! Though it’s less stressful and more comfortable to travel by tour group, it’s definitely more fun and in control of my itinerary when I travel by free and easy!  Teeth!!! Please get well for the lovely Taiwan food! ^^
Meantime I will just enjoy the yummy food at my office’s pre-CNY celebration today 😛
