I am still paying off $3000(thank God for insurance)from a three night stay in icu because of an absessed tooth. after two weeks of agonizing pain, being high from pain killers and three misdiagosis, i woke up one moring unable to open my mouth and a huge bump from my cheek to my neck. it took four antibiotics, diludid, morphine,intubation, two cts and a surgery to relese the absess.
after i got out of the hospital, i had three teeth removed. ended up getting c. difficile, which is a dangerours bacterial infection of the colon from all the antibiotics.
three weeks of abdomonal pain and another trip to the hospital to resolve that issue. all from an absessed tooth. go now.
