On no, it was just another CT scan. Also did the eeeeeeeeee and had few other acts of torture performed on me. But at 8 months all is still clear.
I did have something come up a few weeks ago though that I hadn't heard of before. There was a very rough spot along the inside of my gumline that was irritating my tongue, in fact cutting it at times. I asked my ENT when I went in yesterday to look at it. He called it tarsa (?? - didn't write it down, so probably got the name wrong). It is where the skin is so thin over the jaw bone below the teeth and with the lack of saliva, the skin just tears away. Anyway, not too fun. He used some device to grind down (no painkillers) the bone so it's smooth and gave some antibacterial mouthwash to heal up the opening. Feels great now though, inside of my mouth is smooth as a baby's but. Hadn't heard of that one before so thought I'd give a warning. He said if you let this go it could affect the exposed bone.
Thanks for everyone's support over the last 8 months!
Positive thoughts to all!
