All 4 wisdom teeth are OUT!!! I am so happy. I have never had any surgery or been put under general anesthesia before. I was amazed at how one second the doctor is asking me some questions as he starts to inject something into my IV and the next SECOND I'm being woken up and then walked to my wife in the waiting room. IT was definitely the weirdest thing I have ever experienced. It was just crazy!!!! If only my work week would fly by that fast. LOL
Yesterday wasn't too bad at all. I kept ice on both sides of my face, which really helped with the bleeding, which did finally stop after about 5 hours. I was amazed that the bleeding stopped so fast given the fact that I had 2 impacted teeth, one was VERY bad. I was then able to start my liquid diet. Call me a wimp, but I already don't think I will ever eat any more yogurt, protein shakes or apple sauce again!
I did try some mac and cheese earlier today, but it a bit more difficult than I thought it was going to be. Today has been a bit harder than yesterday... cheeks are swollen, jaw is very stiff, breath is horrid and I have had a headache for pretty much the whole day. With that said, this whole experience was nothing close to what I lead myself to believe it was going to be. So, all of you waiting to get this done... you have nothing to fear. I am just glad it is all over. Thanks for everyone's feedback, support and care!! I never visited this board before last week, but I will continue to visit to lend my help and experience to others in need. Thanks again to all!!!!
