Wisdom Teeth — Complete!

On Friday, I got my lower-left wisdom tooth extracted. That’s the last one that should cause any trouble; there’s only one remaining, and it’s fully out so shouldn’t act up. After a few years of on-again-off-again twinges, and lots of irresponsible putting-off of surgery, I’ve finally taken care of it.

The downside: I’m totally zonked on painkillers, so I won’t be doing much for the next few days apart from what’s required for day-to-day day-job stuff.

    That says quite a bit about your day job, but I bet your boss will forgive you. After all, you’re zonked on painkillers. :)

    of course, what I really meant was that I can’t avoid the day-job stuff ;)

    As someone who’s spent too long in the dentists over the last few months I feel your pain. Of course you don’t have control over your wisdom teeth!

    Had two out this year. The first one was a killer as the dentist didn’t see a reason for me to stay out of work and the pain killers were crap so I had to go out sick and unpayed. Second time round I demanded a sicknote for a week off and proper painkillers. I needed them too as he had to cut the tooth into three pieces and crack the bits out. Face was swollen and black and blue for days. All gone now and less biting into gums and gum infections.

    I really feel your pain though.

    Comrade, I too feel your pain!

    I had a rather stressful wisdom tooth extraction yesterday under sedation. It was in a very difficult, impacted position, so hard to get at. I’m a bit swollen but mostly I’m extremely sore. Have lots of painkillers though so I’m going to tank up on those until I get the (EIGHT!) stitches out on Monday. Can’t wait. :(
