Well, hubby had what we thought would be one of his last dental visits today. We weren't very happy with what we were told. He has to go back to the oral surgeon one more time.
It seems that the last time the oral surgeon cut his jaw open to remove some bone growths, he didn't close it completely or correctly or the stitches didn't hold and let loose prematurely. Not that it matters why, the fact remains that he has to go back! The bone was left exposed and now that part of the bone is dead! So the dead bone now has to be removed! NICE!!!! And the only way to do that is to open up his jaw again and cut, chip, grind the dead bone away, and then sew it back together one more time.
Needless to say hubby is not at all pleased about this situation. I told him that what ever fee they think they are going to charge for this surgery will not be paid for by us. I don't care if the oral surgeon has to eat this bill.....the last one cost $1,498.00, we are not paying again. I'll take him to court before we will pay again! In fact, I think he owes us some money for all the suffering he has put hubby through. And poor hubby has no more time he can take off from work for this. So, like the last time, he will have it done late in the afternoon one day and return to work the following morning. And once again his diet will consist of soup and milkshakes.....oh, yeah.....and pain medication!
