Hi doc, are there any pathology on ct scan of maxilla and sinuses?

I had a filling changed for right upper first molar, but in 2 weeks I was having intolerable headache, pain in ear, tongue, jaw and surrounding areas. The doc re-opened the filling and found pulpitis, said his drilling might have exposed pulp. I was prescribed anti-biotics for a week and he did root-canal. 3 canals were found and filled, on top of the filling he put cotton stuffing and then the temporary filling. He had already used up all of my insurance on the fillings, so said the permanent filling could be done in an year. Is it safe to wait for an year, I am not really sure if he did the sealing properly.

I have had a root canal a year ago. It suddenly flared up while I was traveling acroos the United States. We had to stop in TX where an endodontist took care of me. He said I had a large abscess. He gave me ic clindamycin which seem to heal my infection. This was in May. Suddenly two weeks ago it flared up again and my dentist put me o clindamycin again. This time it is not working. My endodontist told me that I had irreversible pulpitis and drilled holes in tooth and cleaned it out. He also put medicine in it and thought it would be fine. He is now out of town and the pain has returned. Nothing is working and I will be out of meds tomorrow. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
