Ow....it hurts! - Page 2

eewww....I never thought of the drooling. Great, when I get mine out (hopefully) soon, I can have a drool contest with Pushkin the slobber-mouth!
Would other forms of liquid refreshments be appropriate? I'm thinkin' a little rum for dinner....

Trav had his out in March and he had no pain, no swelling, nothing. Before his surgery, I told him I would get him a Tendercrisp Bacon Cheddar Ranch at Burger King when he felt better(that's when they first came out) and he got one about 3 days after surgery and hasn't stopped since......not fair. Trav's were impacted too but they didn't have to cut them out. He was in and out in about a half hour.

I haven't had my wisdom teeth out yet although they are coming in. I had my tonsils out last year but its not the same.

I know after a couple days (if I remember correctly) you can eat like scrambled eggs and mashed potatoes. Good luck though and I hope you feel better!

Also, try mushing up icecream and sucking that up - tastes like a thick-shake. And freshly squeezed vegetable and fruit juices - yummy and refreshing and very good for your recovery.

Oh! And you aren't supposed to do any sucking motions (sucking through a straw, etc). You can get dry sockets and to get them cut out is worse than getting the first surgery because they have to go in and cut out what has healed over. Just so you don't have to go through more pain. They really pushed Trav not to suck through a straw. That's all they said "Whatever you do, DO NOT USE A STRAW!"

And no mouthwash for a week after you start eating hard foods. If you get food stuck in the holes, you salt water to swish it out.

Any more questions, PM me. Trav remembers quite a bit.

Here's a website I found that might help a little too.

Something else that is gross and I don't know if it's happened to anyone else, is when the stitches in your mouth get foodstuffs caught in them and then a few days later when the food has gone bad it liquidises and then squirts at random intervals back into your mouth. The taste is PUTRID!! Ewwwwwwwwwwww
