    I'm back...all in all not too bad in regards to the procedure.

    I had a ton of numbing stuff and several refills:), he gave me motrin 800 mg. and vicodin for the pain.

    Between the two it keep the pain in check, I have some fillings which need to done next week....and a partial in the future.

    Honestly, I wish they would have pulled them all out, I have had horrible tooth problems since the FM and CFS. gums are still a little swollen but not too bad...better everyday.

    I am being tight fisted with the left over vicodin....for the really bad FM days:)

    Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts, and if you have work to do and can afford it get it done, my mouth hurt everyday in combination with the FM it was too much too bear.

    I feel your pain.

    I had to have all my teeth removed when I was just 33. It took only 3 trips and the third one I walked out with my new dentures in place. That third trip was to remove the remaining 6 on the bottom and the remaing 6 on the top...they put the dentures in right in after those last 12 extractions...geez.

    Talk about gagging! It took a few weeks to get used to the dentures, but it was great after that. No more candy apples at the fair, but no more pain either. Not a bad trade I suppose.

    I will keep you in my thoughts and wish you all the best.
