    I went for my post op appt today. My surgeon removed all of the knots from my stitches- they are supposed to be self dissolving but they didn't.

    When I got home, I realized the doc missed 3 of I snipped them with nail clippers.

    I think I missed my calling.

    BTW as a followup to Dentistry 101.... the new crown didn't fit the rebuilt stump....and it was the wrong the dentist did a new impression and the new one should be ready next week. It will be 3 weeks by then since the original crown broke.

    Take care

    I had a BAHA (Bone Anchored Hearing aid) implanted. The surgeon had to do a 1.5"x1.5" skin graft to keep the skin "hair free" around the abutment.

    BTW my newest and best tool in my bathroom arsenal.....Fixodent....Duct Tape for Teeth!
