Re: Jaw pain after wisdom teeth extraction

I had my wisdom teeth out very young (12), and as I remember, it was no big deal. BUT. I've known plenty of people who had them out and had a lot of pain with it. I don't know if it matters, but I've had several surgeries (broken bone plated, gallbladder out, tonsils out, stuff like that), and I've never had a problem with it. I really quite like going to sleep and waking up all better. OTOH, my husband dreads surgery because he has a really hard time with the anesthetic, tends to get adhesions around the incisions sites, etc.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that people are different. I really hope you're feeling much better now that a few months have gone by.
