After needing it done for about 10 years I got all my wisdom teeth pulled yesterday morning. Despite having had a gorey mouth full of blood, gauze and novocaine it hasn't been painful at all. I was knocked out for the procedure which only took an hour or so. They have me on what I now realize is Vicodin (hydrocodone bitartrate & acetaminophen) which could explain why this has been so painless. One of the odder things I was told to do is bite down on tea bags to stop the bleeding and wouldn't you know it, it worked. Tasted pretty good, too. Tetleys if you must know.
I was eating yogurt and ice cream almost right away. I still haven't moved up to anything solid yet, even potato salad was too much, not because it'll hurt but because the idea of bits of potato getting stuck in the empty sockets... yurk!
Now all I want is pizza.
