    So last night i had some real bad pain in my mouth, i coudnt sleep all that good at all. :crazy: It was like a wrenching pressure.

    So i took my happy ass down to the denstist today ,and had x rays done. The dentist says i have the two back wisdowm teeth growing in funky, and there comming out from the jaw bone.They say they have to remove some of my actual jaw tommorow ,way back in there,,and hack out alot of my gums , just to even get to the teeth. :crazy: They also said it requires a special oral surgeon to perform it, and he is being called in for me tommorow, because they are not qualified to do this sort of thing.Its oral surgery.


    It was 87 bucks for the x rays, and 350 per tooth, like 900.00 total.

    So i said,,,, :D common man, cant yiou guys do it for like 500 cash????:D :haha:

    Nope. :haha:

    Wish me luck, as i dont know what the out come may be. :crazy: They better have the hottest little dental helpers in there for that price, dancing and stripping for 900.00 :haha: :D

    Plus , i think these codines they gave me right now rock, i think im going to take another, they make eberything ALLLL better for the time being.:D

    when i went in there, everyone else had medi- cal insurance, hardly spoke any english, and probobly got all there dental stuff for free, because ots ok to be a loser , not work, get a buisness loan, get a free house, if your not from here, but,,,NOPE, i have a job, a life , im an American, so i dont get any of these privleges, i have to pay. I remember looking around scanning the room and thinking, what a bunch of leeching losers.

    I can take amazingly horrific flesh wounds, but anything with my teeth just creeps me out. It's like your skeletal system is more a definition of you that anything else. Ickers....

    I had my wisdom teeth taken out by an oral surgeon - all 4 at once. I counted backwards from 100 to about 96 on thursday and woke up on sat night at home. The pain meds did their job and I was out drinking by the following weekend. hen the pain meds really did their job. Good luck.

    That wisdom teeth removal is nothing compared to what I've had.

    The surgery that found the Hodgkins was a gland removal that required them to open up my chest exactly the same way they'd open me up for open heart surgery (break my breastbone and spread my ribs), because the gland they were taking out was right behind my breastbone. They did it, and then found that the tissue they took out was cancerous.

    EDIT - Anyway, you've got my prayers. Surgery is surgery, no matter how minor it is.

    I hope they are putting you all the way under and not just giving you the N20. My brother-in-law just had the same exact thing as you in Nov. and he couldn't afford to pay to be put out all the way. He said if he had to do it all over, he'd find the money.

    dental pain...been there...still there...

    I was told about 20 years ago all my wisdom teeth were "impacted",and growing sideways or something..of course,they were ready to wheel me into the operating room if I said the word.. I didn't!..

    Since those teeth were not the ones hurting at the moment,I had them fill the cavity in the tooth that WAS painful,and said "I'll get back to you about the "wisdom" teeth..that was,like I said..20 years or more ago..

    I have been to a dentist twice since then,last time over 12 years ago..(both were different dentists in different towns)..I had the usual X-rays,cleaning,and of course the 3 cavities they "found" while cleaning with the pickaxe and pry bars filled..and both told me "do you realize your wisdom teeth are impacted"...I said "uh-huh" thru the mouthfull of cotton and gauze..

    I now have a few bad teeth,the roots have cavities,and I doubt they can do much more than yank them..I can't believe they dont hurt ,I should be in agony..but only if I poke them in the right spot,or something hot or cold gets in that space,do they hurt at all..cold air outside makes them hurt sometimes though..I guess you get more immune to dental pain as you age,but you can still get toothaches and absessed teeth..pretty soon I'll have to get dentures,and then I can brush them while they are OUT of my mouth!.:eek1:

    I tend to distrust doctors and dentists now..after having NO trouble with my wisdom teeth ,when I was told I'd be very sorry if I didn't get them yanked,--and having testicular cancer surgurey,that was supposedly only going to "cause a slight discomfort for a few days"..:surepal: yeah,RIGHT!..:angry1: --try several YEARS of sometimes UNBEARABLE pain!..:1zhelp: :yikes: ...not to mention the brain damage that goes along with losing half your manhood!..(feels like the "surgeuon" used a hatchet on my crotch..):mad:

    Sometimes I wonder if they dont just SAY you need this or that done..because they need another boat payment,or the note is due on that Mercdes-Benz....one "infomercial" guy selling a "natural cures" book says he overheard doctors gambling at a casino say "looks like everyone who comes in next week is getting surgurey" ,as he loses another hand at the poker table!:eek1: .. It wouldn't suprise me!..

    Now I tend to just endure the pain or illness...I'd rather die with the rest of my "original parts" intact..unless they are rotting off and gonna kill me ..then maybe I'll think about doing something about it..If booze and /or pain pills like advil,etc,don't work..THEN its time to see a specialist!..(or someone who sells stronger pills)..:rolleyes:

    Anyway Hi-Pinion...hope it all goes well,and you wake up from the anasthesia!....GOOD LUCK!...:crazy:
