I can't even believe it. I had my root canal 2 days ago. I was definitely improved afterwards, but was having pain in one of my other teeth. I kept thinking it must have just been from them mucking around. I just kept popping the vicodin and was wondering why I was such a wimp when others kept telling me they were completely fine after their root canals.
I was brushing my teeth last night and felt such a shot of pain I literally fell over and started to scream. The same pain, but worse and in a different tooth. I was besides myself. We were leaving on a trip in less than 36 hours and I was in so much pain I could only pop more vicodin, motrin and benadryl to make it tolerable.
Back to the endodontist this morning (who I had to page on his day off. Thanks Dr. Yokota!) to hear I need another root canal.
I would have taken another picture, but really, what was the point? I was wearing the same suffocating latex dental dam.
At least I was wearing underwear this time.
