01:38 pm - Ouch!
I had the second half of my root canal today. After he was done and the novocaine wore off it hurt pretty badly. I went back to the office about 45 minutes later (after I was sure the codeine was doing nothing) and complained. He put more novocaine in it (which he said would last 4-5 hours and it lasted 2) and told me he would renew my prescription for codeine if I was still in pain afterwards. *sigh*
Luckily, the nerve seems to be resigning itself to its fate rather quickly, so now it doesn't hurt so much I can't think about anything else. I suspect it'll be fine by morning.
