Thank you for sharing your story. I am on IV antibiotics for six weeks now for osteomyelitis. My new dentist discovered that my old dentist left a broken instrument stuck from the root of a tooth into my jaw from a root canal that was done 2 and a half years ago. I was not told at the time about the instrument. I had about 14 root canals over the next two years and had to go to another dentist who discovered numerous abscesses from inproperly done root canals and removed the tooth with the broken off instrument and some of the bone in my jaw. I had gotten so run down and ill, pain and fatigue, that I cannot do housework and nearly lost my job from being sick so often with my teeth and fatigue. Now, my physician recommends that I have all my teeth removed to prevent more infection and not have to repeat the IV antibiotics which keeps me from being able to work as I am at the hospital more hours than at home. My dentist is against it. I am interested in what others have done to help themselves. Thanks....Cathy
