I got sent home today WTF?!

Gosh, LJ, it has been a while and I see you've had a make over.
Just wanted to put these last few days into writing.

You see, I had my wisdom teeth removed about a month ago. Everything was healing brilliantly, when all of a sudden on Saturday evening I rammed my toothbrush into the back of my gum, because I had miscalculated the size of my newly wisdomtoothless mouth (yes I do feel that my mouth has somehow become smaller o_Ox).
I hurt so much ARGH.
Saturday: I wake up and realise my cheek was slightly swollen, no big deal, I'll just cool it a bit with rice that I kept in the freezer.
Monday: Argh... It hasn't got much better, just keep on cooling, I can't expect it to be over that quickly, can I? *goes to uni* *comes back home* £%^@$/^%$\£@~ Why won't the pain stop!?!??!
Today: *wakes up* I have a fucking tennis ball on my face. I couldn't chew, so I rushed to the university doctor who gave me antibiotics for the apparent abcess. I also learned that in the UK, you can't just go to a dentist. NO! You have to call some sort of number and they refer you to the nearest dentistry that is accepting new patients right now. None of which are currently in Huddersfield, so I think I'll pass on that and stick with the antibiotics for now. He only said I needed the dentist if it didn't get better with them, let's hope they work.

Now I'm no longer in any pain and the doctor said it looks worse than it actually is, but my coursemates freaked out so much over my swollen cheek that I was asked to go home.

Seriously? Where's the difference between sitting in a lecture theatre listening to the lecturers and sitting at home doing whatever? It's not going to heal my cheek any faster AND I'VE MISSED LECTURES NOW THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I'm not in any pain and I'm perfectly capable of paying attention.

I'm going back to uni tomorrow, they can't keep me away when I feel like I am perfectly able to come.

OMKami hope you'll get better soooooooon! Take good care!
(And I've heard something like this about dentists in the UK, but more importantly, they seem to be quite expensive as well!)

Thank you~ This is all just so stupid that it all just happened because of my toothbrush (I think).

Well, I just sought the never ending wisdom on the internet, apparently I should go see a dentist... now I have to hunt one down that accepts new patients. I found a directory which seems to list one near me, so I'll have a look there tomorrow morning to hopefully make an appointment for the weekend.

Now, that IS really expensive! Any news on your tooth situation?

Holy crap!! Sorry about that hun!! DX I had that happen to me when I had my wisdom teeth removed ten years ago. It hurts like a bitch . :/

I really don't get why they sent you home, though. It's a bunch of bs. >>
