I'm in the UK.
Saturday before last I woke up with severe toothache in the bottom
molar next to the back one. I had my wisdom teeth removed 25 years ago.
I went to the emergency dentist who gave me amoxicillin and recommended
removal later in the week.
My own dentist after examining me added metronidazole and x rays and booked
me for removal last Saturday.
On Saturday he tells me he can't do it in the general setting and has referred me
to an oral/max fax surgeon. The roots are bent and the abscess is large in the bone.
He gave me more metronidazole and some morphine. I have quite bad heart disease.
What does this sort of removal entail? Will I just be left in this abject agony to fend for myself?
I just think it's unethical to simply leave me while the hospital take their sweet time
calling me in. What, if anything, can I do?
