I'm going in at 2 pm for a root canal!  It should be against the law. These are the low days and root canal on top of it!  Should be against the law!

Someone upstairs needs to give you a break. 

Dang! I HATE the dentist with a passion. I hope its as comfortable as possible.

Thinking of you.

I don't think you can have a root canal while on chemo, can you?  I can't even get my teeth cleaned.

i had my teeth cleaned and checked prior to chemo. My onc didn't want any dental work either but because of the pain he decided root canal was best. I do have to take antibiotics for a few weeks.

Sorry you're dealing with this on top of everything else. This is a little bump in the road. Hopefully you have a good dentist and you don't feel anything.
