Ugh, if it isn't one thing, it's another. I have had some bad times with health, but never this numerous in this short amount of time. Anyway, tooth broke 2 months ago. Didn't have money to get it fixed (no dental insurance). Became infected recently and the other tooth right beside it needed to come out too. So had that done this morning. Fun. With so much more expensive dental work in the near future to be done. I had it done 10 hours ago, and still changing gauze out because it's still bleeding. They said it should stop bleeding by tomorrow morning. So am I suppose to sleep with gauze in my mouth? The patient coordinator said yes , but what if I wind up choking on it while I sleep? Anyone know what to do here? Ugh. Miserable. Yucky. In pain but not that much pain thank God. I just want the bleeding to stop so I can take this gauze out finally. The dentist suggest tea bags but I don't know what tea bags to use and they closed for the day. I am about to google it now.
