  • No anti-biotics needed for non-bloody dental treatments

    Well, folks, I went to see Dr. Sherrid today, and he felt that I am doing very well. Totally unobstructed and the heart murmur gone after the ablation last year.

    I described to him the nonsense the dentist has been putting me through, making me take meds for many dental appts. that were totally non-bloody, and he laughed and said that wasn't the intention at all. He wrote a note to my dentist stating that since medical treatments have improved my condition, the risk is less, and I should only be asked to take meds for definite bloody procedures, such as cleanings------

    My dentist has been harassing me, forcing me to take anti-biotics for appts to take an impression of my teeth for a night splint, and gluing in a gold inlay---all non-bloody procedures----

    It truly IS NONSENSE!

    I'm so glad to hear that your obstruction is gone, no murmur, and that the ablation was obviously very successful for you! I just love hearing great news like that.

    Take care,
