Three wisdom teeth out yesterday. Still spitting up blood. Mouth hurts so badly, but that's from the cyst that the dentist found behind my lower-left tooth. All I've been able to eat is soup, not even any bread to go with it... just want to be able to lay my head down without it hurting so I can sleep for a week until I get these stitches out.

::walks in with some jaw breakers:: Oh, I guess you can't have any at the moment. o.o;;;;;

Actually, I know what your going through. I had 4 of the buggers, thats right, 4 removed at teh same time. One had a cyst around it, the other was deeply imbedded in my jawbone.

You do NOT want to hear from the dentist, "I'm sorry, we're gonna have to cut a little more and we can't give you any more painkillers." -.-; Yeah, I was a little upset. I didn't hit the doctor, but I broke the cd case and the cd that was in it with my hands.

......course, the perk of being concious at the time was me seeing the doctor get squirted in the face with blood as eh cut into me. ^_^;

Did they knock you out for this Stew?

And once again, I'm sorry and hope you feel better soon.

No, I had a local. The needles felt like they were going into the bone. Then the dentist managed to tear the corner of my mouth. My entire mouth was plenty numb, the tooth with the cyst was compacted by it and came out in two parts. And I'll tell you what you don't want to hear from a dentist *crack* "Bugger. That's coming out in two parts... where's all that pus coming from? Suction!"

My two top ones had roots reaching up at least as high as my cheekbones.

The last time I had dental surgery I was put out, and I'll be put out again if I need any serious dental surgery. Removing teeth counts as serious.

Oh god, just the image in my head is painful, ohhhhh make it stop!

I'm so, so sorry. :(

You could always puree your bread ya know. It looks icky and is a bit gross going down, but it still /feels/ solid in your gut.

I used to do that for a living...puree foood for folks in a nursing home. It was probably the grossest job I ever had. Pureed liver and spinach. Pureed hot dogs. Pureed pie.

'Lo Jim. You have pie? *GLOP!*

Hmmm...do you guys have Ensure shakes over there? Two cans have all of your daily nutrition and they're relatively filling to boot. Also, if you blend in a scoop or tow of ice cream, they make great shakes. :-)

Ouch. I'm sorry, darling. I was lucky enough to get put out for the entire procedure, and I had the fun stitches that just melt into your gums and the rest of it falls out. (Actually, I finally had to pull bits of mine out after two weeks, blech.)

You don't have to suffer the indignity of baby food, but you might want to ask your mom to pick you up a couple of those "meal replacement" shakes like Soulsong's talking about, kinda - preferably not one of the diet ones...you don't need to diet. It'll keep you from feeling even worse, though it's hard to avoid. *hugs tight* Just sleep as much as you can, love.

Right. I need my wisdom teeth taken out, and now I don't fucking wanna.

I'm just glad I know for a fact that England's dental program is worse off than our own. And don't accuse me of talking shit in that regard, my father's a dentist, and a trained professional!

Respect mah authoritah!

Eep. That sucks that they didn't use the disolve stitches. I rather liked them when I had mine pulled. I too got to be knocked out for it. I'm so glad they did, cause I am a sissy when it comes to needles. Good advice from Jim and Kris. Get some of those Ensure shakes if they have them over there. Put em in the fridge so that they'll taste better tho. Hope you're feeling better soon!

Fucking Hell.

That's all I have to say.

Damn, and I thought my dental issues a few months back were bad. Fucking hell.

Hope you like applesauce. . .
