Re: Post Peridontal Surgery Pain
From what I have been told by my dentist, everybody reacts differently. I am beginning to think, I got the worst end of it. He told me, some people have no pain at all. This certainly wasn't the case for me. For the first 2 days, I had no pain at all. I did have a 102 fever but other than that, my mouth felt great. On the 3rd day after the surgery, the pain set in. My teeth badly hurt & my gum on the top of my mouth extremely hurt as well. It's now been 6 days and I am beginning to feel better. I am still taking pain killers, but not as often. The pain comes and goes. I will be fine for a few hours & then it will hit. It's more of a soreness kind of pain now. Before it was a constant throbbing pain. This isn't something I would want to go through again, but I needed to have it done. I know it will pay off in the end. My dentist also told me some people get very sensitive to hot and cold. I didn't. It feels good when I have water in my mouth. I had some soup yesterday & that also felt great. All in all, I guess it just depends on how you react to the surgery. I'm getting excited over the fact that I am starting to feel better. I'm finally beginning to see the light which I thought would never happen.
Just hang in there & don't be afraid to call your dentist with any questions. I have called him every day since the surgery. He probably rolls his eyes when he gets my messages, but hey, this is something new to me.
Best of luck, make sure to take it easy for a good 4-5 days. If you have any questions, post them & I'll be sure to get back to you.
