Re: Teeth

I have had dental problems for a long, long time, ever since some cheapo dentist put some cheap fillings in my mouth. Turned out to be allergic to them and have had health issues since. Breast cancer was only one of them. Teeth are very important to overall health, I assure you! I have a bridge, lots of fillings, that need renewing every couple of years, as the only filling I'm not allergic to isn't very strong.

Off to my dentist now, for a gum infection and nerve pain. Agree!

Oh, and allergic to novocaine too. So I take a pain killer before treatment.


(didn't have chemo, but did have Zoladex and Arimidex)
Diagnosed age 44, January 2004, 0.7 cm IDC & DCIS. Stage 1, grade 3, ER/PR pos. HER2 pos. clear margins, no nodes. SNB. 35 rads. On Zoladex and Armidex since Dec. 2004. Stopped Zoladex/Arimidex sept 2009 Still taking mistletoe shots (CAM therapy) Doing fine.
