Supposedly my age makes a difference, LOL at least thats what the surgeon said when I was in the office. "at your age..." I'm very healthy and do not normally have any healing issues btw.
I had one impacted tooth out on Monday. This is Fri and I am still miserable. The first day and a half werent too bad. Since wed. I am having to take pain med every 4 hours around the clock. I did do slightly better today but it's killing me right now. I could have a dry socket but Ive been super careful and when I look in there it looks closed up. Occassionally it feels sore but not terribly painful and then the pain comes back and throbs and throbs. It hurts all the way down to my chin. I'm OVER it. I'm also on 800 ibuprofen and amoxicillin. I am just waiting on some kidney issue from days of ibuprofen and I'm sure I'll get yeast from that penicillin ha ha. With all this suffering I could have had plastic surgery. I'm just suffering with nothing to show for it
My questions is this, is it normal to hurt this much after this many days?
