I'm sure by the smile in the title you all can imagine that I'm not in pain anymore :D
First of all sorry for not being posting the update on the tooth problem. I've been literally drowned with work and was barely able to manage 6 hours of sleep in this week. I'm hoping things will look up today onwards and I shall have some time to blog surf as well as post! My reader shows 300+ unread posts! And I wonder how long it will take me to catch up reading those plus commenting!
So after I came back from doc's visit and having taken a painkiller I was feeling better although slightly feverish. But we still managed to for the movie Kismet Konnections sicne we had bought the tickets the previous day. It was a boring movie. I slept through almost entire of the second half of the movie. The pain was almost gione and I was feeling happy thinking this was the end of it. But I was so wrong!!
By 11 PM the pain was so bad that I had tears rolling down my cheeks continuosly. I was trying to put icepack rfom the outside on the jaw and it would help for 20-25 mins. I so wanted to sleep but just couldn't in the pain. The damn painkiller was also not working. And hubby asks me if I had actually eaten the painkillero r thrown it away. I swear I wanted to go after him with a dagger. And what got my goat was he kept watching TV and here I was writhing in pain. At one point the pain got so worse that I felt I would go insane if it doesn't subside in the next 30 mins. And I guess I partly did go insane coz I started abusing hubby saying "main mar jayungi par tumTV dekhte rahna!" (I will die but you shall continue watching TV). Finally managed to sleep at 4:00 AM. Apologised to him in the morning sicne he was mighty upset coz of my statement. He said "Main kya karta. Painkiller to de di ya tha." I told him yes that he couldnt' do anything but then he should also not take it to heart since I was in so much pain. I should be allowed to be illogical at such times. :D
Coming back to the tooth, RCT (Root Canal Treatment) started since Monday i.e. Jul 21. Have had 2 sittings so far. Each one is really painful . Yesterday during my second sitting I was telling my doc that delivering the baby was easier than getting this RCT done. At least its done and over with in few hours unlike RCT where I've to go in for atleast 5-6 sittings each as painful as the previous. He just laughed and said infact some women told him that after the pain of delivery, all these pains are trivial. I just shrugged and said probably I had an easy delivery than them.
I'm lighter by 4.5K for getting this one procedure of RCT. And it DOES NOT include capping!! Can you beleive this?? And I've one more to go for the molar on the other side. By the end of 2 months I would be lighter by atleast 15K for getting work done on these 2 teeth. And that further means each tooth will have a price of 7.5 K. Do you think I could auction them when in dire straits? :D
So take care of these teeth fellas! Its painful not only physically but financially as well!!
