I had cavitation procedure, the last surgery site revealed source of major infection. The dentist was startled to see a bunch of gauze left behind from many years before. The surgical site was my wisdom tooth extraction site.
The major mistake made was not to prescribe antibiotics. My MD said , the infection settled elsewhere in the body. I was put on antibiotics after I got my first kidney infection. The surgical site still aches, so I might have to return for second surgery
