Tuesday I went for a wisdom tooth extraction as a preventative measure. Unfortunately due to the combined stress of seeing a dentist and the unfamiliar surroundings and the C word , I had a major meltdown and the procedure was discontinued. Tooth is still in and I was sent to the psychologist who is going to teach me some breathing techniques. Plan B now seems to either be extraction under general anaesthetic or my own dentist who I am emailing the OPG. PEG is booked in for 23/3 and D Day ( treatment day ) could be any day now. I am attending the meditation session on Monday before psych appt. It is all happening and despite no appointments next week after Monday I have been told to be ready as treatment could start anytime and even before PEG. Certainly not boring.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
