My Teeth - The Count Down to 28

My wisdom teeth are going to be extracted this Friday, Friday, Friday. The top right one cracked during the gobbling of an ice cream taco. I planned on keeping my wisdom teeth forever. I felt that if I didn't need them, then they would not be there. Since one is having complications, they all are coming out.

The oral surgeon made the procedure sound very peaceful and promised many pain killers. Some of which people experienced epic hallucinations in a zombie like state.

I'm not looking forward to it. I am glad that the time is nearing so I can get on with eating ice cream tacos and fried ice cream at the Mexican restaurant.

Thanks for stopping by my blogspot.

Its not that bad. You may be in a little pain for a week but the drugs are GOOOood!!! Just be prepared to rest. If the drugs are too strong cut them and half. Or downgrade to a Advil gel tab during the day.

All of them. I hope you heal quickly. I was with my husband when he had his extracted. He was out of it when he came out and slept a lot on that first day. I too have all of mine. Hoping I can keep them for many more years.

I still have all of mine too - but I'm sure you'll be fine. Don't worry :o)

Laquita, I hope you do get to keep them all.

Salt-n-Pepper - HEYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!! These drugs sound like a combination of all illegal drugs in one little pill. I need to function, lol.

I had 2 wisdom teeth extracted this past summer. I suggest taking your meds on time and...cutting the feet off a pair of pantyhose, putting a bad of ice in each foot, knotting it and tyins it around your face bunny rabbit style so that it hits the swelling precisely. Take it off after 20 minutes for about 10 minutes for the first day or two. this will minimize swelling and pain. Good luck!

Starshadow, thank you for your advice. I didn't have as much swelling as I was expecting. The pain wasn't that bad, rather the pain pills are really great. I did sleep a good deal with the pills. When they kick in it's no fighting it.
