Maybe I should not have

March 24th, 2013 at 02:26 pm

Okay before I start my new job tomorrow I took a week off to have my car repaired and my wisdom tooth extracted.

Now I'm thinking I should have left the tooth alone. It wasn't really bothering but when ever the temperature dropped I felt a slight discomfort. Long story short I'm still in pain and swollen. The pain has decreased someone, no need for a pain pill, but the swelling is driving me crazy. Tomorrow would make one week and I'm scheduled to start work. Ugh! How long should this last?

Calling the oral surgeon tomorrow

    For what it's worth, the older you are when you get them out, the longer the recovery. My husband had them out much later than me, and he was in pain for quite awhile, even though he didn't have an complications. I was surprised since it had been so easy for me at fifteen years younger. Hope that isn't the case for you!

    Have you tried putting ice on it to help the swelling go down?

    Thanks everyone, it's funny because I was much younger when I had the first one done and don't ever remember it being so painful, I never thought about the age at the time of extraction. I also have been icing every chance I get.

    A call was just placed to the oral surgeon as well
