    Lower, right at the back - not much left of the tooth but very strong roots underneath the gum line.

    The efficiency and ease they do extractions these days, it's hard to imagine any difficulty getting it out. You'll feel like a new man by tomorrow night. Get some of those pain-killers. Not many, just enough to get some enjoyment out of all that suffering you've been through.

    Ouchie, good luck tomorrow, hope it's reduced enough they can remove it, will feel amazing once its gone.

    I'd rather do childbirth with no pain relief than that sort of tooth pain.

    Vick's Vapour rub smothered on chest and back and ibuprofen or paracetamol to take the edge off it's very bad.

    Bruised and battered but at least he managed to remove it this time :-)

    The first attempt was just total agony, the anaesthetic didn’t take and I was unable to open my mouth far enough because of the infected jaw.

    glad you're getting through that.
    Word of caution: Stay away from popcorn.
    I went to the movies a couple of days after my last extraction.
    I am still getting remnants out of the gum.

    You’ve seen my results on the Monday quiz, don’t do movies or popcorn

    Same here. Spent a couple small fortunes on this mouth of mine, only to have a tooth yanked once a year or more. Dentist's are evil money-suckers

    I probably posted that in an ambien trance-soryy
