Doctor gave me a prescription and a follow-up in 3 weeks to see progress. I later checked in with the dentist and they want me to be on the BP medicine for at least a week before I come in for the root canal so … ugh. Fortunately, the amoxicillin they put me on does seem to have caused the “discomfort” to ease slightly.
The doctor also told me to hold off on the gym for a couple of days so I won’t be able to go there until Saturday. Today was supposed to be a Gym Day, but alas.
Good news in this pile of crap: had to weigh in at the doctor’s office and it confirmed my weight lost of over forty pounds.
