    Probably sometime in January, I'm having jaw surgery to correct the alignment. They will give me Demerol again, since I "do so well with it!"

    Good luck and let us know how you are doing!!

    I had 2 screws in the 2 bones in my left leg (since removed) (from a bicycle running over me -- yes that's right), and three plates and 12 screws in my neck from a fall while on a 24 mile run. Mkwood also has had a plate and screws in an ankle. Man, we're a wreck.

    DJ,
    I sure wish I had seen this BEFORE you had your surgery. Please follow all of your directions to the letter. A dry socket is very, very painful. Be sure to eat with your pain medicine. If you take it on an empty stomach or with very little food you will vomit. It will make you feel horrible. I've been there and it's not fun. Whenever I remove a tooth I always tell my patients to get their pain meds filled immediately, eat something soft (not on that side) and take a pain pill. For the 1st day, I also tell them to take a pain pill every 4 hours whether they feel like they need it or not. It's easier to stop pain before it starts.

    Good like. I hope you feel better tomorrow. Be sure to give us an update tomorrow and let us know how you are doing.

    DJ . . .

    Been there, done that.

    Like Toothdoc says, you do NOT --- ABSOLUTELY DO NOT --- want a dry socket. I've had one . . .

    Trust me, if you DON'T know Jesus (or whoever your Big Kahuna is) and you wind up with a dry socket, you will run up and introduce yourself to Him (Her) quick, fast and in a hellified hurry. I can't even really describe the pain, except to say that I was in such a bad way I couldn't even cry, groan or breathe deeply, that's how much it hurt.

    The doc is also absolutely right about the pain pills.

    TAKE them.

    Please keep us updated.

    Hope you feel better, soon.

    Eva, was the tubal ligation the rough surgery? I'm considering it but I'm a little nervous.
    Jane, jane, have your husband have a vasectomy, it's a far less complicated procedure, in and out of the doctor's office in half an hour!!!!!!!!!!
