Well, yesterday was my dental apointment. Due to being on heavy duty meds for so long my teeth were trashed. Very very brittle. I had 29 teeth pulled within an hours time. That's an experience that will sort the men from the boys folks! Just with a local anistetic. I was awake through it all and the dentist had one heck of a time getting them all out. Within minutes of being done they put my new dentures in and I was headed home. I've been on Plavix for a long time and stopped taking it a week ago to reduce bleeding. Still, 5 hours later found me in the ER as the bleeding just wouldn't stop. Even the ER doc couldn't get it to stop. Finaly, at 5:30am after exhausting all trys it stopped. Now I just gotta deal with the pain till my gums heal. At least I've got Morphine to help with that. As soon as the dentist signs a release I see the heart surgeon to set the date for the valve replacement. Life sure can get interesting at times. Will be glad when I'm able to eat something. My stomach thinks my throat's been cut. lol Wanna make sure the bleeding is for sure stopped before I even try.
