So far this week has not gone to plan at all. Yesterday I was ill with a tummy upset which had me up and down during the night and then needing to be close to the bathroom. Fortunately things have calmed down a bit.
Today I had booked off as the Dentist was going to do a longer appointment with a treatment assessment and then an extraction. When I arrived he seemed a bit phased that I had not been to an assessment appointment prior to an extraction. I replied that this was how he had booked it the last time. Then things settled down a bit. However I have not had the extraction today. I had to have a full mouth X-ray and this revealed that I need two extractions. Apparently it is like spaghetti junction in my mouth below tooth level and so I have been referred yet again. (Because of the epilepsy and the fact that I will need anaesthetic they tend to let the Hospital deal with me as they are better equipped if I have a reaction under the anaesthetic - insurance companies do not like patients like me).
I have however had a couple of deep fillings to keep me going. I am waiting for the numbness to wear off from the injections - a bit lop sided as he has worked on both sides of the mouth. Desperate for a cup of tea but safer until I let the numbness wear off otherwise I will be dribbling for England!
I am now waiting for another hospital appointment for two teeth to be extracted. That's along with seeing the Rheumatologist the physiotherapist the orthotics clinic (I have to go and see them this afternoon). I also have the back class to go back to at some point (apparently I am being referred back to it) and because of when it is I will lose 2 1/2 hours every Monday which I will have to make up. So I am working this in advance so that I am in credit. I also booked an evening appointment with my GP which I could not get for a fortnight i.e. 9 May 2016. This appointment is for me feet i.e my bunions for the referral to a specialist as per the Physiotherapist's recommendation. I am just concerned as how all of this is going to fit in. Well at least I am being helped which is the main thing.
Right have to get on.
Catch you later.
