Renovation Project - Johns not well
John has not been feeling well for a couple of days and he seems
to have another abscess in his mouth, his teeth don’t hurt but his
We visit the doctor who thinks it is his teeth, but after checking
them and finding there is no pain, thinks it maybe his sinus's.
She gives him a prescription for painkillers and antibiotics and
to go for a scan (can you believe it?????) in the UK we would've had
to wait months for a scan, but we get one because “just to be
The antibiotics don’t work, the scan is booked
We also make an appointment at the dentist.
At the dentist it is not good news, John had some bridge work
after an accident years ago, and apparently it was not done
correctly, it will all need replacing, this is not covered on our
health care in France as it considered cosmetic, and the bill will be
approx 3000 Euros!
But he is given stronger antibiotics.
Not good news, and we start to look at treatment in other
countries, you can buy dental holidays to Czechoslovakia and
Bulgaria, but by the time you have added it all together you are not
saving that much.
We go for the scan and he is diagnosed with polyps, one sinus is
full of them, we had no idea about this and book an appointment with
(This has all taken approximately one week!!!!!)
The stronger antibiotics have started too work and he is almost
back to being human again, he has been like a bear with a sore head
for the past couple of weeks and spent most of the time in bed.
But it does give us some breathing space to decide what to do
about the treatment and we have an appointment to see the specialist
about his polyps in a couple of weeks
