Red face apicectomy update

i told u about my apicectomy well the absess came back and my dentist wouldnt touch it he sent me to the hospital were they found i had a secondary root on the same tooth that he had done the apicectomy on in otherwords he never noticed i had two roots on the one tooth and when he was cleaning the absess out and drilling it i told him i had pain and he didnt listen he just kept on drilling and prodding needles in to get the infection also as the apicectomy went wronge and i did hemeroage three times i now have to have another apicectomy done under anesthetic at the hospital cos he put bone wax in to stop the bleeding and he now has to cut my gum again somewere else and remove the bone wax he is still hopeful that he will be able to save the tooth but at the moment the bone wax is locking the infection in the secondary root and i have to wait i have two absesses still on the scar from the last apicectomy and now i have to go through the whole thing again and have another apicectomy done in september 17th can anyone one sympatise with me on this i feel like i have been butchered by the marathon man hence the movie dustin hoffman and it has left me absolutely terrified of the dentist thanks for listen ing to my story. lorretta
