ok... so I went to the superthread! (which is AWESOME!!!) but i couldn't find a link for what I need.
My husband is post treatment. He has recieved 20 HBO treatments and will now have a tooth pulled. Then he will receive 10 more HBO treatments. What should I watch for? How will I know if he isn't going to heal?
Thanks for your continued support and dedication.

Well on March 25th the Dr told us it would be 4-8 weeks before the cavity would be completely healed... as of today April 26th it is not completely healed but it continues to get better. We believe the HBO treatments really helped. His eye sight is back to normal.
I will complete this post the day the cavity is completly healed. Will also post if we have any other issues with it (which we truely would be surprised by)
On a side note we have had a CT and ENT check up and NED ... We did have some concern that the HBO treatment would strengthen any cancer cells that were left...just as it does the healthy cells... but all is well so far!
NED and God be with you!

I've never heard that one before. Larry get a mouthwash with no alcohol in it or just make your own with salt or baking soda. Invest in a water-pik to get the stubborn food out from those back teeth.
