@hilsy, I'm bringing @alpaca to this discussion. She talks about her journey with teeth post oral surgery in this discussion from a couple of years ago and may have some experiences and thoughts to share with you.

I surely can understand that you want to make the right decisions for (with) your mom given that she also has dementia and the realities that go along with that. Are the doctors suggesting that they observe if she heals well on her own before turning to hyperbaric oxygen treatment? How long and how frequently would she need it?

Thank you – I'll check that link. The surgeon was talking about 4 weeks of treatments – 5x per week for 20 mornings. It's frankly hard to imagine and also sounds like a covid risk too as it's a group setting. In any case, he won't make a determination until our second follow up at month's end.
