TEMPORO MANDIVULAR JAWBONE(TMJ)
===========================


I JUST HAVE AN ORAL SURGERY THIS MORNING AND IT IS SO PAINFUL AND VERY HARD TO UNDERTAKE. THE ORTHO HAS TO COME THRU THE LOWER BACK OF MY RIGHT EAR. AND THEN THRU THE INTERNAL RIGHT JAWBONE. I WAS SEDATED PARTIALLY CUZ I DONT WANT FULL SEDATION CUZ AT MY AGE OF 55 I DON'T WANT TO HAVE FORGETFULLNESS PROBLEM. I HAVE READ THAT ANESTHETIC AT TIMES TENDS TO MAKE PEOPLE FORGET THINGS. WITH ME---I DONT WANT IT. AS LONG AS I CAN STAND THE PAIN--ITS OKEY WITH ME.

THE SURGERY WENT WELL.THE SWELL ON MY LEFT SIDE IS NOT THAT MUCH. I WAS ABLE TO MOVE BUT I WAS NOT ABLE TO TALK. WHICH IS GOOD CUZ I WONT BE ANSWERING THE FON FOR AT LEAST TWO DAYS. AT LEAST TWO GLORIOUS DAYS OF NOT LISTENING TO ALL THE WHINNERS AND COMPLAINERS ON THE FON.

THE ORTHO'S BILL IS SO EXHORBITANT. MY INSURANCE WILL PAY FOR IT AND I HAVE TO SHOULDER THE USD200.00 FOR THE MOUTH GUARD THAT COST USD900.00 STILL NOT BAD. AT LEAST I DON'T HAVE TO PAY THE WHOLE AMOUNT FOR THE ORAL SURGERY. NOW I HAVE TO WEAR THE MOUTH GUARD FOREVER UNTIL I DIE AT NITE ONLY. THE GUARD WILL PROTECT THE JAWBONE FROM MOVING TO A BAD DIRECTIONS THAT IS CAUSING SO MUCH STRESS IN MY JAWBONE AREA AND CAUSING PAIN.

TMJ IS ATHRITIS OF THE JAWBONE.

HOW COME IN PINAS THERE IS NO SUCH ILLNESS LIKE THIS. THE ONLY THING I KNOW IS IF THE TOOTH IS GIVING SOMEBODY ANY PAIN---THE DENTIST WILL EXTRACT IT. NOW I AM UNDER HEAVY MEDICATION TO EASE THE PAIN AND THE SPEEDY HEALING PROCESS OF THE WOUND ON THE GUM AND IN MY CHEEK. ANYWAY--IT IS A VERY SMALL INCISION AND NOBODY COULD NOTICE ANYTHING. IN FACT THE BANDAGE IS JUST A SMALL BAND AID SIZE.

OH WELL---THE SHOW MUST GO ON. I HAVE TO HEAL IMMEIDATELY CUZ IN MY OTHER JOB I HAVE TO DO LOTS OF TALKING AND LOTS OF LECTURES TO GIVE. THE COMPLAINTS DEPT OF THE AIRLINE WHERE I WORK WILL HAVE TO WAIT---BUT NOT THE LAW FIRM ON MY 2ND JOB.
