All is well
Turns out it was just the healing abuttment that came off, not the implant itself. They took x-rays just to be sure and it is still firmly implanted in the bone. Thank God! I dont recall being so worried in a long time, I felt like I was going to throw up all night and morning until the doctors saw me. They decided against screwing it back in (thank God!) and are just going to let it stay off since my surgery is coming up here in the next week or so anyway. It has formed a bubble over the hole where it was screwed in already so I dont have to worry about getting infection or anything in there while I am waiting. So no pain, just got sent home and all is well. Thank you for all the good thoughts!
