You may have read my other post about my decaying tooth. They caused swollen glands, swollen tonsils, and pain in my neck. These symptoms have been present sice February 1st. I'm currently on antibiotics (amoxicillian) and have been for 5 days so far, 5 more days to take them. I don't mean to sound paranoid with all these posts, but I truly am scared. I've heard that teeth infection can cause infection in the heart if not treated in time. I worry that I let this infection go way too long to be held under control. My surgery is in 3 days.
So I have a couple of serious questions and please give me honest answers regardless of how irrational you may think i'm being.
1.) is it possible because I waited almost a month before taking antibiotics, the could be too far gone to be fixed?
2.) if no to the first question, will the antibiotics keep this infection under control until I can get these teeth out. Meaning, will the infection stay where it is and not spread to my brain or heart as long as i'm taking my antibiotics?
3.) is there any possibility he infection is already in my heart or my brain or that's what could happen soon?
4.) when I do have them removed, could e infection present spread to those areas? Even though I've been on antibiotics?
And last, 5.) if I am for some reason totally wrong, and these symptoms aren't from my teeth, is it too dangerous to have surgery? (I don't have problems breathing wih my tonsils swollen thy are just a little swollen)
Thank you so much for reading all of this am participating with me
