During the middle of the week, I experienced swelling in the area of my right ascending ramus. It's down now. I wonder what would cause that? When I was younger, I broke my left ascending ramus. I wonder if it's related.

Went to the Dermatologist for annual spot freezes however he took a scraping because of a spot's irregular margins.

My legs are sore today...still...from Saturday.

Played in my university's annual alumni soccer game this weekend. The pace, style, well everything is very different than the practices with The Girl's U14 team.

Pass the Advil please...

Decision Time -

Have surgery through the gum to try to save a front tooth
or
Have it extracted and go the implant route.

In today's mail I got the report - benign.
Seems like if you're worried about something being cancerous the doctor's office could give you a call either way. I'm sure they call if there's an issue but why make you sweat it out for a few extra days waiting on the mail?

I recently had an eye exam and the optometrist remarked how I had a couple of 'noticeable' floaters in both eyes. Yeah, they drive me nuts sometimes.

please send all future insurance premiums to MarALago

Floaters - ugh. Had a scary giganto floater that would not leave my right eye. Eye doc sent me to the retina specialist. vitreuous fluid draining pulling retina or something. Laser surgery to fix says Dr Gohel.

MF that shit was uncomfortable, strapped in with eye propped open with laser beams soldering away. $1000 for your high deductible insurance plan.

Repeat 6 months later same eye, same price. But that was a followup appt, i had no floater complaints but Dr Gotohell needed to laser away anyway, more pain and suffering.

Grrr. HUbby goes to glaucoma specialist who lasers his eyes for something and he gets a liquid fricking cocaine in his eye and I had to SUFFER! WHY Dr Gotohell why?

Never again!



RN my left shoulder aches.

I get neck aches occasionally. Usually they involve sharp pain, I can't sleep and I can't turn my head for several days. Then they get better. Last week I got a lower neck ache that will NOT go away. The pain is not as intense as the usual neck aches, but this one freaks me out because the fingers on my left hand are numb/tingly this whole time.

I get back aches at times - muscular, slightly lower than my shoulder blades, generally goes away in a matter of hours (although with packing up a house to move it's happening about every other day now). I try not to complain about it because I know it's not much compared to folks with real back (or neck) problems. What you describe with the not going away and numb fingers (pinched nerve?) would freak me out...

I had to have surgery a couple of years ago for the same issue. A disk was compressing a nerve root in my neck.

My wife has considered a triple vertebrae fuse in her neck, but for now has decided the risk exceeds the potential reward.

Had appointment with an Oral Surgeon -
I need to have a front tooth extracted - done with local - no worse than a root canal
need a bone graft,
have an implant put in,
have a partial for 6 months for bone graft to take,
hopefully then a permanent tooth attached.
& total nearly $3K.
:-c :-o 8-! :not:

Day after surgery -

front tooth extracted under local.
bone lost was enough not to put the implant in - bone graft done - hope & prayer that it is successful enough in 12 weeks to open gum again to do.
temp /partial fitting ok just weird feeling.
pain - managed by ibuprofen - haven't needed prescription.
antibiotic prescription - 4 x a day
antibiotic mouthwash - 2 x a day
