I had a tooth pulled Wednesday and called the dentist today because it still is hurting only to find out I have dry socket.
I have only taken 1.5 lortabs today and 600 mg of Ibuprofen because I'm so scared of liver damage but I also have Darvocet I can take. It hurts soooo bad but I'm just sitting here doing nothing because of my fear of these pain meds.
Anyone know how long the pain will last? It sucks!
Thanksgiving tomorrow, darn! You should be fine by the real Thanksgiving, if that helps at all... Just treat it very gently until the scab can form...I am sure the dentist told you not to such anything, including smoking and using straws. Warm salt water rinses can also promote healing.
I know it hurts very badly, I am so sorry you are going though this...
