Morning Losers!

Well it's frosty this morning and lovely sunny blue skies. Hopefully this will help lower the river levels during the day. The Irwell was almost higher than Bury Bridge, which don't believe has ever happened. If it gets cut off, it cuts off one side of the town from the other, and the next crossing point in both directions (about 5 miles away) have already flooded!

Anywho, today is a pretty standard day. I get to earn some cash for a small carol service tonight, and then meeting some old school friends for beer and possibly curry!

Laters!

    That might be a bit tricky for their three kids aged 3, 6 and 8. They're not from Newcastle you see.

    Afternoon chumps,

    Typically censored weather out rainy and just dull, missus has decided to hide in bed for the day nothings going on so ive spent the day model making an getting high off the paints an solvents and supping coffee.
  • Greetings all,

    Last Sunday of the year sucks too. Emergency Dental appointment to get a tooth removed and dentist stopped and is referring me for sedation as the injections weren't having the desired affect,ie, I still felt everything and not "pressure".

    Anyone had sedation before?

    Weather is shoot too so no bike time.
  • sedation as in complete knock out or just local anaesthetic? I've had both. They're awesome!

    Not too sure he just said sedation, I was in too much pain to ask more.

    Since he tried pulling it yesterday cheek has swollen up and hard. But got my amoxicillin this morning and some co codalmol. Think they have just all started to kick in as in moderate pain now compared to the agony I was in this morning and an abscess has appeared next to the tooth so guessing the antibiotics are doing the job.

    After speaking with my dentist he said they shouldn't have tried extraction whilst it is infected as you can't numb the tooth properly. Hence I hit the roof.

    Been knocked out in hospital before a few times with general anaesthetic then woken up again, find that stuff crazy creepy.

    Can they knock you out at the dentist? Thought that could only be done at the hospital? But hospitals don't do dental work?
  • Yeah dentists can, it was the only way I had teeth removed as a kid as I wouldn't let them near my mouth with a needle. I've been known to punch nurses for injecting me (I was a child at the time)

    Self defense is what I call it. I never had a problem until I had a wisdom tooth forcefully removed and I had to grab the hand of pain and convince him it was not numb.

    If it is numb, do anything I say. But when you say it is not numb and they carry on its wrong.

    Are we talking bout the same thing I want, like being knocked out for an op?
  • Yeah, general anaesthetic is where you're completely knocked out cold. Local anaesthetic is just numbing an area. Some dentists usually have the facilities to knock you out, but not all.

  • Will be the general I need then as he said not all dentists offer it. Pain has gone down so much but trying to get it sorted quick before it comes back.
