I’ve buddied around 30 newly diagnosed ladies all of whom delightful.
Recently I’ve had a couple of queries re bleeding gums, which actually affect me too. Last time I went to the dentist, ( who I ‘ve known for 28 years now, and he knows that my father was a dentist, and that my dental regime is spot on) my gums were obviously bleeding copiously so he told me off for not flossing. Cheek!
If I floss it looks as though the battle of the Somme has taken place in my basin!
Flossing makes it worse, I can only use a soft brush.
So, question is, does anyone else have this problem? If it is reasonably widespread I believe our dentists should be looking into it as it could have a long term impact on gum and teeth health.
I really don’t fancy becoming a toothless old crone!
I take 1000mgs hydroxicarbamide every day and have had PV for 9 years but otherwise am absolutely tickety boo.
Hope you’re all feeling pucka out there today! I’m staying with elder daughter and husband, who after 5 years of trying and 3 rounds of IVF are expecting twin boys. Incandescent with excitement. The poor darlings have NO idea what they’re in for.
At 28 weeks Claire already looks full term, by Christmas she’ll look as though she’s gobbled a 28lb turkey poor love. Oops pardon the pun.
