Well, long story short...my onc dropped the ball and didn't call my dentist back, or consult with the other doctor, or call me back, or do anything he said he would. I had to verbally give the other doctor permission to make decisions for me. So, my dentist got in touch with the other onc who decided to let me go ahead and do the dental work that I so desperately need done! I get my root canal THIS THURSDAY and I get my extraction (it's less than half a tooth left) on 9/18. Both are on the opposite side of where I had surgery/rads and then I have 4 cavities to get filled. Once I'm done, I hope everyone can leave my poor mouth ALONE for a while :) I'll let y'all know how the procedures go!
Side note: My rad onc has let me down time and time again. How long do I have to keep seeing him? I know I haven't been done that long, but I've had THREE appointments with him since I finished rads on 6/21. Two of those he wasn't even there. I'm supposed to go back in November but honestly, I have NO desire to see that man again. I see my ENT in November as well and he is the one that does my "check ups". Can I not drop this rad onc?
