Today at 3:30 I had a dentist appointment scheduled. One root canal and 2 and a half hours later I was walking out of the dentist. Two and half hours in the chair, mouth stretched to limits I thought could never be achieved, and the root canal was complete.
First problem he had was numbing the area. I got two shots of novacaine and then he started drilling and scraping away when I realized the numbing was either wearing off or he just didn't get enough of the right area because the pain was just ubelievable, so he stopped and gave me another shot of novacaine and let me sit there for about 10 minutes. So round two starts and the area just wasn't numb enough because again the pain was crazy. So, he stopped once again gave me two more shots and let me sit for another 10 minutes. Round three starts and it was much better but still not totally pain free. At this point I was not about to tell him to stop and just wanted it over.
I've had a root canal before but that was just plain old rough. I'm just so exausted I decided to make tonight a day of rest and make up my workout later in the week. This is one time I don't feel guilty for missing a workout. Have a great Thursday morning. - Jason (Sore Mouth) The Running Man
