So I went ahead and had root canals extracted by a Huggins dentist (Marble Falls, TX).
I felt AMAZING immediately afterward.
Ever since, I feel much calmer, and I don't get upset as easily. I am enjoying life more.
But I am going through a detox period afterward. Some people at the dentist said to expect to feel more tired than usual for 2 weeks afterward. Yes, I am more tired than usual!
One of the rc's had an abscess underneath, not visible in x-rays. Anyway, between the rc toxins and bacteria probably released, I am pretty tired, but I feel like my body is clearing it out. If I do detox stuff then I feel better than ever.
I feel like I need to rest a lot and eat a lot of healthy food.
I wish there were more resources for what to do after a root canal removal, especially if your health is not great in the first place.
But I am not worried; it feels like my body has this under control.
