Re: Wisdom Teeth Surgery
Just got home and all I can say is WOW! The procedure went great and all that anticipation for a week was the worst part! All 4 teeth came out in what felt like 15 minutes however they said the procedure took over an hour!
My only concern at this point is that my bottom lip and chin area is a bit numb. My upper lip is fine and my jaw is fine. I wrapped ice around my whole face and they gave me percocet for later. So yeah basically is the numbness in the chin and bottom lip area normal and will it go away? I hope they didn't do any nerve damage :s.
Also, my mom helped me replace the gauze that was given to me during the procedure and it was full of blood. ON average, how many more times should I replace the gauze until the blood clots? I would appreciate the help.
Edit: For anyone who has not had this surgery yet, do NOT worry. I made the same mistake and was freaking out for weeks. It is not a big deal at all and the fear of the unknown/anticipation is the worst. The only tiny bit of pain was when they inserted the IV, but I'm not a needle phobic so it wasn't bad at all. I hope your procedure goes as well as mine did and you will be so happy once it is all over with!
