Desperately seeking help to better my health and wellbeing
Wellington, Upper Hutt City
Hi! My name is Hollie and 3 years ago I became extremely unwell with Crohn’s disease. I've since been diagnosed with Inflammatory arthritis as well as reflux, chronic fatigue, and mental health conditions related to living with this disease
I have had many failed drug trials, hospital admissions, infusions, tests, and invasive procedures all while being too unwell to work regularly. I have now got a treatment plan which is taking me into remission, but remission comes at a cost with powerful immune suppressants alongside all of the other medications causing all sorts of other related issues like crumbling teeth.
Due to the long-term lack of nutrition, excessive stomach acid, vomiting, and medication my teeth are failing me and causing me a lot of pain and are literally crumbling out of my mouth. I have had 9 removed and now I am facing the reality at 35 of having all of my teeth removed and having dentures for the rest of my life. it's been quoted at about 15k depending on the surgery and hospital costs and if my health causes any complications.
In the last few months, almost every tooth has started breaking and causing me a great deal of pain, not to mention how damaging it is to my self-esteem now that it is my front teeth as well.
The risk of infection is high in rotting teeth and that is an issue for people on immune suppressors. As we all know dental pain is horrendous and it is nearly all of my teeth, so it's affecting every facet of my life currently.
it's going towards removing all of my crumbling teeth surgically and having a full set of dentures made. If I have any left I will find someone who needs treatment and is in a position like me.
