My fugging mouf hurts!
I had my lower right wisdom tooth pulled last Thursday. It was impacted and they pretty much had to chisel it out. I didn't think it would be a big deal. After all, I had already had my upper right one removed and it didn't hurt a bit. Ha! Was I in for a BIG surprise! Thursday afternoon my mouth hurt... A LOT! And that was WITH the vicodin the doc gave me. Shit! So, I loaded up on Advil too and that seemed to help. So, for the last five days I've been alternating between vicodin and advil to try and keep the pain under control. Actually, I've been trying not to take anything, but that's not working out so well for me. Think it's counter productive actually. I'm just too stupid to figure that out. Anyway, I called the dentist's office (a surgical place) today and asked if this was normal. Informed that it was and that in another day or two it should ease up and I'll start getting back to normal. Holy Hell! A whole week! My mouf and jaw hurt so bad I could almost cry! I said almost! I have a high tolerance for pain, but this thing is kicking my ass! Oh well, had to vent. Going to find the vicodin now. Cheers!
