Dental Update

I mentioned that the swelling came back yesterday, and that was normal I was told. Just now I went to use the restroom and as I was washing my hands, I look in the mirror, thought I had dirt/ink on my face and went to rub it off and it's a big black and blue mark. I looked like someone punched me in the jaw. Ok, big is relative. I'd say it's as big as two quarters (two 25 cents pieces).

I don't have pain, there's no heat, but I've never had a bruise like that before so I called the doctor and was told that was totally normal, no worries. It's weird to see. I don't think I've ever had a bruise on my face, which is probably a good thing!

Please accept my sympathies... for this and for the past few days you've gone through. I'm sure these exterior bruises don't come close to how bruised you feel inside after paying the exhorbitant dentist's fee!

consider the bruises a badge of honor reflecting all the pain you've been through!

That sounds bad! Good thing your doctor assured you that it was normal, or else that would have been alarming. Was that some kind of a side effect of a dental procedure or treatment you’ve been through before? I hope all is well now. Take care!
