So, we went to the Oral Surgeon yesterday who told us when she saw the xray Meg’s dentist had sent over she wasn’t too concerned, but when she felt the cyst it was very “impressive”???
She wanted to go ahead and schedule a surgery to remove it. She wants Meg to be fully sedated because it’s right on the nerve that gives you sensation and taste (the one they make numb when you’re getting your teeth worked on) and she wants to make sure Meg gets those sensations back after surgery. Once it’s out they’ll send it to the pathologist to find out what kind of cyst it is.
She was very nice and sweet to Meg, but like so many doctors she dropped the bomb on us and then acted like there’s no big rush. Told us she’ll be out of town for two weeks and can do it when she gets back. So, surgery is scheduled for March 5th.
We explained it the best we could at her level and Meggers is being such a big girl about it all. As to be expected, she’s a little nervous but likes that she gets to eat two of her favorite foods, Mashed spuds and ice cream for a few days after.
Can’t wait till this is all over and we can put it behind us and move on. Scary stuff.
