Toss up between that and gettin fixed...
Talk about a different ball game! That's, ummm... well... *gulps
;)

I had an inguinal hernia repair many years ago... Laparoscopic repair with mesh. That's the closest I want any doctor coming to them thar parts ever again! My oh my, the bruising that happens! I actually had a moment, couple days after the surgery, when the bruising really started to set in. Thought things were gonna start falling off!!! :eek:o_O:confused: Even called the surgeon: "What is going on! There's a black ring and everything else is orange!"

I'll take my childhood destist shooting me up with Lidocaine, grabbing a pair of Slip-Joint "forceps" and pulling a baby tooth that wouldnt come out any day over another hernia repair!
:p

Ooh that sounds pretty rough. I can’t think of any good hernia stories. Pretty much all sound like nightmarish experiences. I had a couple of really bad bouts of kidney stones back in my 20’s and early 30’s. Felt like someone parked a truck on my nutts. My wife doesn’t believe it, but I’ve heard some women compare it to giving birth. Nasty shitt in any case.
Different ball game tho.....lmao.

Speaking of root canal, I have a cracked molar so just got a root canal done. Set me back $300. Now gotta get a Crown over the cracked molar.

Now I'm at the Lexus dealer for the oil change. While here I was looking in the showroom and wish I was billionaire so I could get this $383K Lexus. :D

I had hernia surgery not too awful long ago and was able to get away without the mesh. Waking up from that and the following couple of days were pretty rough tho. That was some pretty intense pain. I DID get some percs for that one.

So last night I'm feeling the hole left behind with my tongue and something still doesn't seem right. I cleaned my hands real well and rubbed the spot with my finger- ouch! There was another fragment in there! I cleaned up my pocket knife really well with rubbing alcohol and managed to flick it out of there. This is the fragment next to a piece of rice.

The fragment is on the left. What the hell..?! That's not it either, I think there's at least 1 more chunk still in there, if not 2! Right now the spot is officially all healed over but there are still 2 bumps and one of them hurts when I press on it. Like being poked with something sharp... like a BONE FRAGMENT.

What the hell happened when they took that wisdom tooth out? It was 32 years ago! I still remember it vividly tho, because it was so miserable. I had bruising along that side of my jaw from under my ear halfway to my chin. I think they straight up fractured my jaw!

Didn't they used to break up the tooth to take it out in pieces? If they did that, it seems they missed a few. That sucks.

I've heard that too.
IIRC, mine were extracted whole with a sturdy pair of slip-joint pliers forceps.

Since my dad's insurance covered it at the time and I was about to turn 18, I went to a hospital and got anesthesia. They knocked me out so I don't remember a damn thing! I have no clue what they did while I was under...

At least as far as pain goes it's not so bad now. When this problem first made its self aware to me though it was some of the worst pain I've ever experienced. I'm guessing those first couple of fragments, one of them must have been pressing up against a root or something. I had all the classic symptoms of a dying nerve in a tooth. Even temperature sensitivity. I came very, very close to getting a root canal!

Another one!!

Another fragment poked through and the pain returned full force. I picked at it, thinking it'd be like the first 2 and just flick out. Nope. Just got back from seeing an oral surgeon. He got some forceps on it and used more force than I would have been comfortable with and broke it off. Still a small sliver left but god it feels better again. I hope this is the last of it. He wants to see me again in 3 weeks tho...
