Thanks Kathryn R and BellaM,
That calms me a little bit. It's good to know that these holes are normal, but I'm really bummed that it can take up to a year to heal. So that means for an entire year I have to clean yucky food particles out of my mouth! What about the light brown nasty fluid? Will that go away or will it be there as long as the holes are there? To Kathryn R --> I have found that simply taking a warm bath and letting your head submerge under water for about 5 minutes really alleves the pain in my head. You can also try a nice hot cup of tea or a electric hot pad thing (I forget what theyre called). Again, thanks so much for everything, Ill be sure to post again.
