My partner has been in pain for over a week. Basically he didn't want to go to the dentist because hes petrified, but also because he gags so much.. So he left it a few days in the hopes that clove oil and pain killers would ease it till it went away. It hasn't!
He gave in on Monday and went to a dentist (private), theyve not registered him, but have set out a treatment plan that should come in the post today. Anyway, he said there was no sign of infection, but just incase one was causing the pain he should take some antibiotics. He then had to go to hospital for an xray, which he did yesterday and dropped off the xray at the dentist..
Last night he was in agony, hes taking so many painkillers (every 4 hours without fail) that hes now getting stomach pains, he can't sleep at all, nor can he eat much, hes on the verge of passing out (either from stress or too many painkillers).. I talked him out of going to a&e but he went at 7am to sit outside of the emergency dentist at the hospital..
Hes just called me in tears (which is not like him) and said they won't do it because his course of antibiotics hasn't finished.. He said the dentist had a go at the extraction and was almost going to do it, then changed his mind and said that about the antib's.
I'm just at a loss and don't know how to help him.
Ive got him frozen peas, clove oil, numerous painkillers, a tens machine, but nothing is taking it off and he just says its getting worse and worse.
Is there anything at all we can do, I don't think he can go till next week like this.
