My wisdom teeth were successfully taken out yesterday. It was a surprisingly fast operation, as it only took 15 minutes. I was not sedated the whole way, but my IV numbed me enough to not feel anything (but I could hear the teeth crack and pop as they came out). It went well. No problems.
When I got home I had not taken painkillers yet and was a little goofy and numb from the medications put in my IV (I apparently pet my sister’s hair and told her she was pretty). Once I laid down, the medication wore off and I experienced horrible pain. I describe it as the worst physical pain I have ever felt in my entire life. It was so bad that I was writhing and tears were coming out of my eyes. I took some painkillers right away, and that helped after it kicked in. There wasn’t much sleep last night. I would sleep for about 4 hours, wake up in pain, take a painkiller and sleep for another 4 hours. At least I have a few days to recover. There isn’t as much pain today, so all is well. Just thankful the surgery went well and there were no issues. Plus, I get to eat as much frozen yogurt as I want! 🙂
