Spent most of last week in The oral surgeon's office at our Military Hospital here in San Antonio. Because lack of spit has caused the remaining 4 teeth I have on both sides of my lower jaw to become totally rotten they will have to remove them before thay can make my new dentures. But they are only going to give me 10 HBO dives after extraction. I talked to the head of the oral surgery clinic about my concerns that MD Anderson and most cancer centers recommend 20 prior and 10 after. He said that investigations have shown that the 20 dives prior to extraction showed little if any difference. He said look at all the facial hair you have on your jaw line all the way back. He said if my blood supply to the jaw was really bad I would not have this thick of a beard. I hope the colonel is right?????? They should know what they are doing. They are the ones putting the faces of our wounded warriors back together. I have seen ther work. It is amazing. Just crosssing my fingers.
