I had three wisdom tooth extractions followed by a couple of months of infection, swelling, osteomyelitis, and even a short bout of trigeminal neuralgia. When the dental surgeon put me under IV sedation to debride away the osteomyelitis, I awoke with strap-bruises across my sternum and upper arms from trying to escape the chair whilst unconscious. All this took place over Christmas (inlaws visited for five days and I cooked for seven throughout), and also incidentally over the period that I left one (20-year) career and started another.

Lost filling, eh. That's terrible! Get well soon!
