You do know that there are many LLMD that tell patients to always remove root canals because they are always a sources of infection including dental spirochetes. You may spend some time googling the issue. Removing a source of infection can be the key to regaining your health. Said another way leving a source of infection in your jaw can be a major health issue.
If it was me-I would find a biological dds can pull the root canal-remember use a biological dds

alunke - I'm not sure what you're asking.

Are you saying you can't handle surgery to clean up the infection and remove the old root canal...but you can handle having the root canal re-done?

Maybe ask magoo what's all involved in removing the old root canal and cleaning up the infection. It may not be as bad as you think?

Sedate or don't that part doesn't matter. Getting a festering infection out of your skull does. Not removing infection source (root canal) can actually kill.

Many good lyme docors remove all root canals always even without them rotting from infection like yours. When they are falling apart there is no choice.

Find a biological dds and get it done the right way so you dont have more infection in the future.

Infection is what causes the root canal to rot-leave it in there and it will get into the bone and make it all but impossible to regain your health. On the plus side many experience greaat gains in their health once they remove their root canals.

PS find a biological dds and get it done right

No matter if you pass out or not, get that taken out. I had a root canal done early last year only to have it removed several months later because of what I had read about them. Especially, since you know you have an active infection. This is your life. I'd trade a moment of acute uncomfort for a life potentially free of disease any day.
