Out of the Blue

Well I'm off a bit today for the aftermath of my recent tooth extraction. When I went for a follow-up a couple of weeks ago, I pointed out a small protuberance in the area, which turns out to be a bone fragment. The doctor is pretending a decision about this will be made today, but we both know his plan is to remove it. When he broached that, I asked: So more surgery? He replied: A minor "procedure." Of course procedure is code for surgery, but I'm trusting he's right about the "minor" part and that this won't be a big disruption.

If it really is just a small bone fragment, and this is very likely (picture the edges of the hole after pulling a big nail out of wood and you'll get the idea), it really is *very* minor to remove. If you need anything at all, a small topical anesthetic like lidocaine is probably enough, a truly tiny incision, and then maybe just one stitch. So really, no worries.
