I hvae to have hernia surgery on10/31. I think I have an abcesed tooth. I have antibiotics for it. Is it ok to take them?
Root canal. I would have the tooth treated before your surgery. Sounds like it may need a root canal. At least have the procedure started before the surgery you don't want to have the infection compromise you healing from the surgery.
Yes. I hope all went well for you. Generally speaking, i would recommend delaying any elective surgery if there are other problems that you require active therapy. Especially if this involves infection. Most hernia operations are performed with a synthetic mesh inserted. The big concern with mesh placement is the risk of infection.
