Teh P'hain!

Good Goddess!
I had three teeth removed today, and the surgery went fine, but I spent all day in extreme pain.  How extreme?  My body was in shock, yes, real shock - uncontrollable cold shaking with a fever, and it kept me from even sleeping, and talking was right out.

It seems the dentist may have prescribed a lesser dose of painkiller than my last surgery... I think he expected me to use it with tylenol, but I don't know.  Luckily, I am stocked up on Slimfast, and hopefully, this forced liquid diet will help me lose a few pounds.
Erf.

By the way, in case I haven't spoken my views on humans lately; these bodies are stupid!  Sharks don't have permanent teeth; they fall out, and another set grows in its place.  For that matter rodents' teeth just keep growing, but honestly it'd be better if these bodies had the same evolution for sharks' teeth.

EDIT - I guess I should have been clear about this, I actually had two wisdom teeth removed, and the left second molar that I had root canal-ed and reconstructed, because that sadistic dentist liked seeing me in pain and pretended not to notice what the next dentist called a "text book crack"... Goddess, I don't often ask that you kill people, but I wish you would, and if you won't kill him, could you at least permanently disable him so that he can't harm anyone else?

*hugs a bunny and sticks an injection of morphine in his arm*
3 teeth....shit..I had trouble with just 1 when they took it out.  I hope you recover quickly *nuzzles*
Wish they would whip out teeth cloning soon..we definitely need it.

I really hate needles o_o
However, I had to laugh a little because they hooked up the heart monitor before they stuck me, and just like a horror movie, it rapidly went from a calm 80 to a scary to hear 150BPM, when it was time for the IV.  Thankfully, the dentist/surgeon knew how to stick a vein without hurting.  I was so afraid it was going to be like the paramedic who stuck me for my appendectomy; that hurt so much it took me three seconds to manage to scream after all my muscles locked up, and I was still feeling it a week after the surgery.

Off topic, could you please explain your comical icon?

Oh damn...meeep....ahh...sowee to hear that ^///^ Was mostly just going on self experience there. Last time I had morphine it would make me giggle like a school girl at anything, whereas just before I was in agonizing pain. I'm glad that this time wasn't as bad for you though.

About the avatar: Well..I was on this site of random funny gifs and pics. They had a cat section...I got intrigued XD When I saw this cat doing a belly flop off what looked like a second story window.....I couldn't stop laughing for over a minute ^_^ So, I took that sucker into photoshop and made a grey scale avatar from it. Later I found the original video on youtube. With sound it's even funnier ^_^

Yikes... *huggles* Most teeth I've ever had out at a time was two wisdom teeth (they took them out half and half because of some dumb insurance limit per year) and whatever painkillers they prescribed me, it was enough.

*hugs* Get well soon.

It would be more useful if we had teeth like some reptiles - no revolver jaws like sharks (the price for their high replacement rate is that the teeth themselves are comparably loose, and with the next row of teeth poking halfway through, it would also be difficult to clean and not exactly tongue-friendly) but simply damaged teeth falling out and growing back piece by piece.

As for dentists, with today's techology an automated home dentistry kit may actually be feasible. I guess it would be cheaper than going to the dentist in the long run, even more so with increasing life expectancy. You can already print dentures when you make a 3D scan of your teeth, so there is a start.
