Could someone remove Thursday from the week???

I don`t blog often,but I need moral support please.

Thursday at 5.30pm I`m at the hospital having 5 teeth out.Thanks to Sjogrens syndrome.

Part of me wishes I hadn`t turned down an anasthetic,but it meant I would get it done quicker.And a month later I can have a new plate.

Then in September my first holiday since 1987.At least I will be able to smile for the camera!!!!!!.

My whole body feels like it`s shaking,and it`s only Monday,and what little sleep I get is going out the window.

How have others managed when having an exstraction,I`m really worried about my neck.

One good thing,they are all in the front so may help diet if I can`t eat much for a while.

They say every cloud has a silver lining don`t they.

Hope your all as well as can be.

Love and hugs a very quivery Butterfly54 xxxxx;-(

Hugs Butterfly . It probably won't be as bad as you think, at least I'm hoping it won't be for you .

I had to have a wisdom tooth extraction last year , and before I went I was terrified . It was much easier than I thought it would be , a bit sore afterwards but didn't hurt at all having the tooth out .

If you have neck problems , tell your dentist and ask if you can take ( or they can provide ) some kind of support .

Good luck and gentle hugs



Thanks Helen,I know you are a fellow sufferer,I`m so glad it`s only been a wisdom tooth for you.

What makes me sad is I had such nice teeth,these are where I had caps and crowns,and apparently they don`t do so well with Sjogrens.

Luckily the rest are o.k.Yes I am going to have to make sure they get me comfy,I can`t put my head back over the hairdressers sink without I don`t black out.So that is a no no now.

Hope you are doing o.k hun or as well as can be.

Hi Butterfly,

I know, it's a bit disheartening isn't it ? I always looked after my teeth too, but I've now had 2 wisdom teeth out and a crown on one molar plus quite a few fillings :(

I now see the hygienist every 3 months, which is private as not offered on the NHS at my dentist's and costs £40 a time, but hopefully it's worth it to avoid having more teeth out as she can catch any problems early .

Do you use a mouth spray or pastilles to try and keep your saliva flowing ?

I must admit, I find the dentist chair uncomfortable but always take a cushion as I have problems with my neck too . The hygienist has one of these all singing all dancing chairs that's really comfy though !

As Penny says, just keep reminding yourself that this time next week it will all be over and you'll be well on the way to recovery.

Hugs xx


Well how about just thinking this time next week it will over :-)

And book yourself a treat for Thu to.

Soft hugs



Hi penny,your right I will have to think of something nice,maybe a walk in the park with my friend and little yorkie.

Thats always a treat for botth of us now days.

Love and hugs Butterfly54 xxxx
