I'll be really excited when my now-empty tooth socket stops hurting. It no longer feels like the teeth on either side are starting to come out, but I was almost ready to cry on the bus ride home waiting for the advil to kick in. At least I have a dentist appointment tomorrow morning to get the stitches taken out. I'm guessing she'll tell me I've got a partial dry socket. Joy.

I thought I had something actually interesting to say, but I can't for the life of me remember what it might have been, so I guess not. Whee! Listen to me whine!

Oh, that sucks so much. I hope you feel better quickly. Mouth pain is so awful.

[Wow. I really am afraid of dentistry. Just the phrase "now-empty tooth socket" was enough to make me almost skip this entry..]

Percoset plus ibuprofen is working quite well. I'm amending my "percoset does nothing" observation to "percoset does nothing on its own, but it does seem to enhance normal pain relievers". Which is pretty useful.

...I just have to stay on top of things and take my pills frequently enough that the new dose kicks in BEFORE the old one wears off...

You might find today's spamusement amusing, incidentally...

Sympathies from this side of the dental work chasm. Turned out that (so far, knock wood) I don't need a root canal, so I can't commiserate with any nearer experience than one day of rip-my-face-off pain almost two weeks ago now.

(My own dentist, who does not perform root canals himself, decided that it was worth trying to make sure that my new crown was not bumping any of the other teeth when I chewed. so we did many rounds of taptaptapgrind on the blue paper and he filed that thing down to where it's a wonder there's any porcelain left on it at all. But that seems to have done the trick, giving the stub of a real tooth the chance to relax and not get vibrated constantly. That or the antibiotics. Never had a chance to test whether Vicodin has any effect on me...)
