Welcome to HCM
I would suggest you to get your root canal completed as soon as possible otherwise it will become very difficult to save your teeth.It will lead to abscess formation & will take even more time.
Mean while you can take some analgesic & antibiotic to escape from pain.You can also place clove oil dipped cotton pellet in your teeth for temporary relief.

Take Care

Hello there...To which tooth was the root canal performed? This the most common mistake people do ..skipping appointments or not turning up for the treatment with their job half done. 10 months is a pretty long time...There would have been accumulation of micro-organisms that would initiate infection resulting in pain . You need to have a course of antibiotics and analgesics. You can have analgesics for your pain...I would advice you to consult your dental surgeon as soon as possible. So that your tooth can be saved.
