Tooths (oppsss words) of Wisdom ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜œ

Got my tooth extracted yesterday.. ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

Though I am a Doc, Going to a dentist scares me..๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฐ

Now you may wonder what the……. in the world M I cribbing about a tooth for??!! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

My first wisdom tooth..๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ
I know It’s not a biguhhhh deal but I had it erupting now… sooooo late..๐Ÿ˜’

image

OK, so the history goes such that… ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡
It started erupting at the beginning of this year, having on and off pain, I ignored it thinking it’s just the growth spurt, but with the chewing becoming more and more problematic and painful more so since there wasn’t anyย  supporting tooth beneath, the friction between the tooth and the cheek resulted in traumatic ulcers on andย  off.. โšก

I Was totally fed up with popping in antibiotics and pain killers, So decided to get it done with ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Now siting at home nursing a swollen jaw, surviving on bland liquids I feel like a patient.. All pasty faced Popoye like.๐Ÿ˜ช๐Ÿ˜ช

image

Immediate Post Op I had transient diplopia ( double vision) ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ™ˆand dizziness ๐ŸŒ€ due to the anaesthesia.๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ˜จ

image

Now I realised how my patients who complainย  of diplopia actually feel. ๐Ÿ˜’

So everything is like a learning process, a lesson in disguise or in plain simple words, I am trying to find positivity in the negative things, atleast I like to think of it that way ๐Ÿ“ย  ( Neethu and her Gyaans you might think ๐Ÿ˜ฐ)

Now I am sure, when a patient comes to me and I am busy examining his/her diplopia, I would know exactlyย how they feel.

So I guess I will be more patient doing their Hess and Diplopiaย  chartings. ๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ“‰

image

Its like a lesson to self,
Rather aย  lesson well learnt.. ๐Ÿ‘ง
In short Wisdom gained ๐Ÿ’ with the loss of a Wisdom tooth..;)

Pssst: Thoughts toย  continue over in the next post… ๐Ÿ˜›
Until then I keep smiling minus my Wisdom Tooth.. ๐Ÿ˜„
Thank God it’s not my Incisors..ย  (Just imagine ๐Ÿ˜จ Noooooooooooo that’s like a total disaster๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ)
