Early night as tomorrow is the day of my dental surgery. Apparently it will take about 5 hours and will be quite unpleasant.

On the flip side, the Donny Osmond tribute act is on schedule.

best of with the dental work

"Donny Osmond tribute act"  Tribute acts for everyone  today

Anaesthetic?

Six and a half hours in the chair with bone chiselling and drilling plus gums peeled back like a banana and then tugged back into place to be stitched? Needed something much stronger to be honest.

Didn't get it though, just that diasipan (Idon't know how to spelll it) and ibuprofen.

Glad it went alright for you smokester. The only dental surgery I've had was getting all my wisdom teeth pulled which I was knocked out for (none were compacted...impacted? whatever) and a root canal which went extremely well (despite all the horror stories I had heard).

Diazepan is a mild tranquilizer.  It's also known as valium.  I'd want to be unconscious for that kind of procedure.  Gak.  Hopefully, you won't be too uncomfortable going forward.

I'm glad it's in the past.

I've never been "opened up" like that. Did you try telling them to get you some bless'ed Laudanum?

Mayhap that’ll learn you to brush and floss in future. Damn kids.

40 years ago someone did that for me. Only, they stowed the floss and used the thick end of a couple of pool cues instead. That was the beginning of years of pain from bridgework and its inevitable decay etc, pain that from now on should be short lived (smokester makes sign of the cross).

The surgery was unpleasant to be sure. They roll the skin of your upper palate back like a duvet at the end of your bed on a hot night. Macabrely, I couldn't help touching the exposed bone with my tongue while they weren't looking.

Ok, this morning the pain is down from a 7/8 to a 4/5. No real bleeding any longer and the bruising pain around my mouth isn't so restraining so I'm getting back to being the #1 chatterbox in the house - if not the borough.

All in all it really wasn't that bad. In 3-4 months I get the final porcelain bridges and I post pics.

I remember the days of backing out of pubs holding pool cues. I somehow managed to avoid eating them, though.

That may not have been the case if you'd been force fed them by 3 Scottish Marines.

Those were exactly the sort of people that I tried to avoid conflicting with.

The Scottish?

Those particular marines.

They moved in the shadows so they were hard to spot.

Sneaky beggars.

True, but quite handy in a war.

I really spoke too soon there. The following day I was quite swollen and the trauma to the upper gum was really painful and hasn't got much better. A little worried now about the healing progress but I have my first review tomorrow so I'll know what exactly "normal" should be.

Not quite as chipper to be honest.

Suck it up, buttercup.

Been told to avoid straws.

Try rinsing with warm salt water.  It will help the gums heal.  Sorry for the pain.
