    Dental Implant Surgery during P2?

    Looks like I'll need a dental implant very soon. I'll be about 3 weeks into a 7-week round of P2. I know Dr. S wrote that patients had gone through medical treatments OK while on the protocol, but I wanted to check and see if anyone had this procedure while on P2. The procedure places a metal post in the jaw bone. Over about 4 months, the post fuses with the bone, if all goes well. Surgery requires:

    > Fasting for 6 hours before surgery (not a problem)
    > General anesthesia (I'll be knocked out)
    > 3-4 days of soft foods and pain killers

    My questions/concerns are:

    1. Should I bump up fat/protein a bit (800-1000 cals total?) the day before and the few days after so the anesthesia and painkillers don't make me sick?

    2. I could eat scrambled eggs, whey protein drinks and green smoothies during first days of healing. Those foods are fine for me. Other soft-food ideas?

    3. Any issues with thin blood/excess bleeding/problems clotting on HCG?

    4. Problems with antibiotics? (I hate them, but may be needed.)

    5. If I have four weeks to go on my round, will my healing and bone-fusion process suffer at all due to nutritional deficiencies or anything else?

    Ironically, my new male dentist has done HCG! He did not think there would be a problem. But I wanted to check in with you, too. Thanks for your experience and insights.

    I started two implants started on my last round of P2. Had the teeth pulled, implant inserted into the bone, etc. I didn't change anything really. I had a course of antibotics, and a couple of days where I took pain meds, and I think the pain meds did slow my losses a bit but overall, it went pretty well. I didn't get knocked out tho, so I can't comment on the anesthesia will affect your losses.

    I ate boiled radishes for a couple of days and some baked Tilapia with lemon and seasonings. Both teeth were on the same side (they are replacing a worn-out bridge) so I was able to chew pretty well on the other side in a couple of days. You can bake or microwave your apples too, with cinnamon and Stevia and pumpkin pie spice. Delish!

    You should be fine. Best of luck and let us know how it goes.

    Thanks, Mini. I feel much better now. You healed well and the implant fused OK, in a regular amount of time? Aren't our bodies amazing?

    I'm still in the process of finishing mine, but healing has gone very well. One of the teeth that needed to be pulled decided to be very difficult so my dentist had to remove some bone in order get it out. Hence, I've waited now for the bone to regenerate and soon I'll be done. I've had one other implant that went very well so this one was annoying in the sense that I've had to wait longer, but yes, it's just amazing how well our bodies handle stuff!

    I had a dental implant while on P2, with no issues whatsoever. I didn't need the pain meds, had no bleeding, no problems with the stitches or anything. I ate soft stuff (boiled chicken with some broth, cabbage soup) and still lost .8 the next morning. I think you'll do fine

    My dental implant surgery went really well. Did not seem to matter at all that I was on HCG drops. Thanks for all your support!

    Good luck, Mini! I'm about a week into recovery and the only thing bothering me is the stitches, which my tongue wants to keep playing with! They come out July 1.

    Be well, everyone!

    Stitches came out about a week ago. Surgeon said I was healing beautifully. All is well. Good luck to anyone else doing a dental implant on HCG.

    Hey I finished my two implants on Friday. Jaw is still a bit sore today, but better than yesterday. Soon I'll be chomping on ANYTHING I want. YAY!

    Best of luck in finishing yours.
