As many of my followers know, last December I had major jaw surgery (that ended up having complications, landing me in the ICU for a couple days, and then had to be partially redone five days later). I’ve been having what I thought was tooth pain over the past few days that has been getting progressively worse, and my orthodontist just informed me it’s very likely one of the bone plates they used for the surgery acting up and will need to be taken out (on the xray it shows a plate right above the roots of the tooth I thought was hurting).
Are. You. Fucking. Kidding.
I thought I was done with all this fucking surgery, and now they have to hack into my mouth again and rip out bone plates?! Although I’m in so much fucking pain right now I’d get the procedure done tomorrow if I could; it feels like a 200lb boxer punched me in the face, like my cheek is broken. I can’t even sleep on my right side, and every waking moment it’s throbbing so horribly. The progression of pain is alarming fast too; it’s already twice as bad as it was this morning. I managed to get squeezed in to see my jaw surgeon as an emergency tomorrow, but with all the New Years hoopla around the corner the earliest I’ll probably be able to get the plate out is mid to late next week… I better at least leave his office with a prescription for Vicodin. No amount of Advil or Tylenol is gonna make this pain tolerable for that long. I’ve officially come to associate the month of December with agonizing oral pain.
Reblog this if you know someone, or have been affected by someone, who needs a punch in the fucking face. People who need a punch in the fucking face affect the lives of many. There is still no known cure for people who need a punch in the fucking face, except a punch in the fucking face. 93% of people won't reblog this.. Why? Because.. they probably need a punch in the fucking face.
