Back to Basics…. Health first…

Okay, the day has been one of revelations… the dental clinic, I guess according to the surgeons office had not provided them with the necessary diagnostic info… -1 for them… but the VA priority authroization was +1 for the VA, but surgeon can’t get me in anytime soon… -1 for the VA, why aren’t I on a plane to Oahu to get this taken care of???

Seriously, they put the men on the plane for the slightest problem if it can’t be addressed here…

I started complaining of dental pain in May 2018!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And here I sit, with a toot broken off at the gum line… a live nerve in a root that is exposed and symptoms for over the last year of infection…. which, guess what, is real…

The heat flush’s to the brain have stopped, the sinus on the right maxillary side is no longer tender and painful, though thanks to the weather, now sneezing is happening… I can’t win… honest…

I went back to basics and reviewed what I knew from my military training as a dental technian…. and I am lucky… breaking that tooth, when the clinic was closed, got the antibiotic on board… even though to the dentist, he is skeptical, or is that just my imagination… he is trying to take care of me… I am so tired from all the pain and now that I see how my bite is so off, I get all the issues over the last 9 years… just wow, shame on El Paso VA for ignoring my plee…. Shame!!!!

Living here, I am screwed, not enough dentist and I don’t know of any other surgeons on the island that will take veterans… I was told the one in Kona was it…

If we were home, this would be removed already by my old dentist… he will be so shocked to hear of how the VA has done my care…. he’s retiring soon…

At least, by looking at the X-ray, the bone is healthy… but I have no X-rays of my left maxillary area, and that very well could be where the infection is at and I have a bad feeling with the migraine I have on the side of the brain where that area is… I am probably right… at least the antibiotic byes me time… and I know how to maintain, to keep from causing more problems…

I’ll just be going through a lot of pain medication and that is never good for my kidneys or bladder… I am one issue away from cancer, because of all they did to those areas… did you know that surgeries on the bladder can cause cancer… yep… I did and with all the pain I am having in that area… I am so wishing we were home already… and I was under different care…

I just got to play it smart, pay attention and stay as healthy as I can, until someone gets busted for playing god as a federal employee… Trump does it in plain sight…. I have a very good idea of who it is at Hilo… it would be nice if they screwed up and exposed themselves… cause I know I am not the only vet having health care issues here on the island… I am just one of many….
