bad diarrhea for the past couple of months since 2 wisdom teeth extracted, one was badly infected, can there be a connection?


Posted by Aware

My husband has bad diarrhea for the past couple of months on and off ever since he had 2 wisdom teeth extracted, one was badly infected, both times he was put on antibiotics, one tooth was fused to his jawbone and his regular dentist yanked it out not an oral surgeon.  Can the chronic diarrhea and the extracted tooth have any connection?  He also took too many NSAIDS (Ibuprofin & Percocet) while he was recovering from his tooth pull and had blood in his stool as a result.  Not sure what to do because he won't have health insurance for another month in his new job.  Also I noticed a slight change in his breath odor not exactly foul but seems different since tooth was pulled.  Can any of this be connected somehow?
