Hi friends! So many of you have been asking how I’ve been doing since getting my amalgam fillings removed (thank you for thinking of me!).
I am sorry it’s taken me so long to get an update written, but I did have some health set-backs after the removal and I am just starting to get my feet back under me.
For those of you who are just tuning in, back in May (2015), I got the last 3 of my amalgam fillings removed. You can read my blog post and watch my video on how I prepared for this procedure here.
The procedure itself went smoothly. All the necessary precautions were taken for both my safety and the safety of the dentist and his assistant. It wasn’t too horrible, but I did have a few moments of panic that I had to work through, but all in all things went well. I actually took some pictures of me all hooked up and covered, but cannot find them now.
I’ve had a lot of amalgam fillings in my life time and have had quite a few (around 6 total from my estimations) removed in the past. All of those were removed unsafely and it was long before I knew any of the dangers surrounding amalgam fillings.
Hindsight is always 20/20 and who knows what long-term effects those unsafe removals had on me. Interestingly enough, I never had any (noticeable) side effects from those removals, but I was a lot younger than I am now and perhaps that helped.
In any case, I put together a video update about the things that happened after the removal. You can watch that below.
