Since our return I returned to my dentist and had my temporary crowns put on....the lower center 4 teeth. These temporary crowns are one piece. When I get my permanent crows in they will be 4 totally separate teeth with space in between each tooth.
Now I can actually smile without being embarrassed. It will take some getting used to since it has been years since I felt comfortable enough to do so.
Then on the 16th...3 days ago...I went for an appointment with my oral surgeon to have a biopsy done to my left cheek on the inside of my mouth. I had a sore that kept returning so I decided of discussing it with my doctor to have a biopsy done on it. I will find out the results in about 2 weeks. The oral surgeon used heavy duty sutures to close the would up. Now I feel like I have a bunch of string hanging from the inside of my left cheek. I was told that the sutures would dissolve in about 2 weeks.
Next on my agenda is a double hernia operation which will be done on December 1st. I had my pre-op meeting with my surgeon this last Thursday. This operation will be completely done via robotics with my doctor running the command center.
And last but not least...approximately 3 weeks after my hernia surgery I will return to my dentist to have the permanent crowns put on.
Hopefully by the start of the new year I will be done with most of my medical issues. The only other issue that I might have taken care of would be my trigger fingers...on my right hand the finger next to my little finger and my middle finger lock up on me. The procedure is fairly minor...a small incision in the palm side of my hand to loosen the tendon which will heal up in about 2 weeks and allow my fingers to open and close smoothly again.
Hopefully that will be everything for quite some time.
