Hi Tazey, I don’t know if I fully understand your situation (you had a full dental clearance but with no dentures, and are now having implants placed by someone you are not that comfortable with? On the NHS?) but I feel so sad reading your posts, and I really hope things improve for you very soon. I know from your other threads that you have quite a restricted diet, but I hope you can manage some soup, ice cream, milkshakes or similar to sustain and nourish you while you recover. If you are anything like me you will be “hangry” with not eating, which doesn’t help! All the very best wishes for your recovery and a positive outcome.
hi,the extractions were 6yrs ago now not recent+implants are firmly in. No I'm not all that comfortable with where I am or who I'm with but changing isn't an option so it is what it is,I'm eating small bits but its clearly nowhere near enough. I admit I was quite evil to people the other day (which I do regret a bit) they really should be a bit more understanding tho+not take it to heart. Thanks for your wishes I just wish I knew more of what was going on+when these posts will be covered.

I wish there wasn't so much stress in this house,I hate being such a burden when people have a lot of other crap to deal with.

Feeling really awfull,I got asked to join a fb group recently so I did thinking it may be helpfull. In the last 24hrs I've had nothing but abuse from them with me+other people I know getting constant messages threatening me ( I will name+shame them if nessesary) they called me a liar+bully when I've done nothing wrong. Apparently it can't possibly take 6yrs for implants (well in my case it really has) they said I'm lying that I had a 5hr op 4wks ago,why on earth would I lie about it? I'm not sure how many of them are on here but please don't join this group,as any nice person I've chatted to on here will know I have more than enough stress (as do my family) so really don't need it.

Don’t worry about Facebook. That is not the real world.

How did your checkup go. Did they answer your questions?

Unfortunatly the grief their causing is very real. At my follow up they took the stitches out+tightened the implants (which hurt) also impressions were sprung on me. I have 4mths till my next appointment so I'll be stuck inside all summer,I have no idea when the posts will be covered.

If those people are part of the group and not admins, try reaching out to the admins to report their behavior. If they post their message directly in the group their is a button to “report post to group admins” under the “...”.

I hope you can find some piece of mind and at least enjoy your summer.

Havn't been here for a while and sorry to see your posts. Leave FB, as Birmanclaws said, it's not the real world. You seem to be making good progress though so take heart in that, a few more months after 6 long years will be do-able for you. You are such a strong person to have got this far. Focus on all the folk here who take the time to support you in a caring way and boot the others into oblivion. xx

If your implants are like mine, at your four month appointment they will check to make sure they integrated with the bone, then will clear them for the crowns/denture. I actually have my four month, post implant, appointment on Wednesday to find out if mine has taken.

hi,I won't be leaving fb I need to stay in touch with certain people+ I've been on there 10yrs why would I? I know it seems like progress but I'm still very much in the dark,guess I'll just keep saving tho in the hope that I can go elsewhere. Hope your doing ok? always nice to hear your positive words. x

Oh+whilst I'm here if "those" certain 2/3 people are still reading my posts then I'm not sure what you were hoping to achieve by contacting my "ex" relatives trolling through 5yrs worth of their posts+pix just to prove that I used to know them,they don't have any info about me to share as they haven't spoke to me in years lol People must have very boring lifes with lots of time on their hands,as for slagging off peoples kids well that says a lot about them.

Maybe not...I am guessing it is very different with full implants than with one or two. I will have to wait quite a bit longer now also, as the oral surgeon told me today that it would be easier if I waited to get my crown until the other implant is ready as well, since they are side by side. It will probably be March at the earliest now. Still, the fact that my implant is integrated with the bone is good! We have to look for the little things, right?

I really hope you can get your crowns as soon as possible and don't have to wait much past the October appointment.

Yep I guess any news is good news,I'd just like a small positive every now+then. All he keeps saying is 6 or 12 appointments (been saying that about a year now) not sure what that's supposed to mean.

Its that time of year birthday almost here+another year of my life wasted nothings changed,another year older+even less chance of having a "normal" life like everyone else I know. I just want to start my life :( also the job centre keep phoning wanting updates when there are none+my doctor only writes a sick note for 6wks at a time (not helpfull).

Well not much to update but 5wks till my appointment (these last 5mths have felt more like 10) 😞 not sure what they will be doing exactly which doesn't help. I'm now getting fortnightly phone calls from the job center even tho I've told them there's no updates (it's harresment) they even said have I thought about voluntary work seriously? I think he thinks that after October that's it all done+dusted and I'll be out looking for a job,these phone conversations are just going to get more awkward.
