For those who pray (or do good thoughts) *update*
I left there thinking I was going to die. My mom and I went on dr google and found out it is a benign tumor made of cementum (a layer of what makes up your tooth). It is caused by trauma to the mouth. So basically my tooth leaked and created this mass. I am not going to die. The surgeon may take it out, or just leave it alone and monitor it for growth. The worst it will do if left treated and it grows is it will make my mouth become terribly disfigured.
Well, I KNOW I will be ok, but my OCD brain is going haywire with what ifs. What if it isn't a cementoma, but something deadly (didn't help I found out my Papaw has cancer the very same day this occurred). What if I lose ALL my teeth. What if what if what if.
I could really use some prayers for peace, and that everything turns out ok. :(
I know there are some great women in here who will pray for me (whatever your faith) or throw some good vibes at me. Lord knows I need them.
Thank you to those whose thoughts and prayers were sent out.
Everything turned out better than fine. I do not have a cementoma. My tooth just formed a very thick root. So the white spot on my X-ray is just bone. :)
I am scheduled for surgery February 25th to have my wisdom teeth removed, and the surgeon said nothing about losing a molar!!!! I won't be gumming my food after all! :)
