On September 22nd, 2016, I finally got my wisdom teeth removed. I wish I had done this when I was younger, as when I was a teen, I didn't have high blood pressure or other issues. In August my blood pressure at the oral surgeon's office was too high, so I had modify my diet, so it was in an acceptable range. Early September it was acceptable, so I finally made an appointment. I don't remember much that day.
I remember taking a medication to sedate me. When my friend arrived, I felt very tired. I remember going into the Dr. Office, getting into the chair and having the IV put in my right hand. I then remember being told I could go home and then I remember eating a chocolate Wendy's frosty. I felt okay. I slept very well. I called my brother twice and didn't remember.
I didn't have a lot of numbness in my face or lips and it went away very quickly. I did have pain, some of it off and on that was bad.
It will be 3 weeks tomorrow. For several days I had soups and liquids and probably did so longer than I had to but I'm older. I haven't yet started eating chewy, crunchy food or hard candy.
I also haven't sip out of straw and will wait another week before doing so, again, probably longer than I had to.
I was concerned about dry socket which is a very painful if you have the misfortune of getting it. Thankfully, I didn't get it.
