I got my wisdom teeth removed earlier in the morning and needless to say it hurts.like hell. I am.just wondering if any.of.you all have had y'alls removed. If so how long.did.it take for.you to get.back.on.your feet and.for.the pain and.bleeding.to stop?

Ahh, this reminds me of a similar thread I made here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=28306

Anyway, on the first day the bleeding was bad and I needed gaws in my mouth every minute of the day, which needed to be replaced every 1-2 hours. I also needed a 'spit bowl" around all the time since I couldn't spit. The anesthesia also made me sick and I threw up a few times. The only thing I had to eat the entire day (not even before the surgery) was just some soup to drink from, but I wasn't hungry at all. Oh and I did nothing but sleep throughout the day, which was then disrupted when a dirt dobber flew into my room and made be jump out of bed.

The bleeding stopped after a few days, but it was still very sore. It seemed to completly stop hurting after 2-3 weeks

EDIT: Whevever I listened to music through the first week it sounded very flat and not as normal. It was from the sickness that caused this

I might need mine out eventually. Which would suck. So, I'm hoping I never have to experience that ordeal. Here's a song for all of you poor souls that had to suffer through it:

:violin:

(Just imagine whatever song you like.)

Ah, wisdom teeth. A horror which I will never have to experience again. I remember having ice packs strapped to my cheeks, to be replaced every two hours, to reduce all the swelling. And yep, there was gauze for bleeding.

It definitely hurts like hell - I was put on a prescription painkiller (max strength ibuprofen) to assuage the pain I was feeling. I think it took me 2 weeks or so to fully get over it; I had 3 teeth removed, and all were impacted (they did not pierce the gum line).

Fortunately, it doesn't last forever. After the pain's over, all it becomes is a slightly unpleasant memory that you never have to relive.

Tiniest molehill ever made into a mountain, in my case. After each procedure (two, one for each side of my mouth) I only took one painkiller, and that was to help me sleep while the bleeding stopped so I wouldn't have the gauze in my mouth gagging me. The stitches were annoying and I was so, so hungry from the lack of solid food, but as far actual pain in the mouth went, nothing. My jaws were really sore though. Like I'd saved the world from a meteor by chewing it to bits.

I had mine removed last year. Honestly the worse part of the WHOLE thing was waiting for it , and then not being able to actually eat anything (theres only so much chicken broth one can drink). As for the actual procedure, they put me out. Not "out of it" but OUT COLD. I remember going in, and then coming out. After words I only needed 1 or 2 Tylenal 4's for the pain ( i had all 4 removed in one go). I did'nt get much swelling, mostly because my teeth came in straight ( reason they had to come out, no room in there for them).

I had all four of mine removed at the same time. I went to sleep, I woke up at the office, I remember walking down to the car, slept on the way home, woke up and walked to my bedroom and slept for 5 hours. I had zero pain the entire time. I tried to sell my pain killers, but for the price people wanted to buy them from me, I decided it was better to abuse them.

Oh wisdom teeth! I had a ton of fun with those! Whatever they were doing to remove the pain didn't work on me for some reason so I felt everything they did to me. I also ended up having a conversation with my dentist the whole time. Yaah... I didn't have the best of times with those accursed wisdom teeth...

My time has come. I'm getting all 4 pulled out in 2 hours. Wish me luck.

Actually, the pain isn't that bad. I can think of a few reasons.

1. My tolerance for pain is really high
2. My oral surgion was awesome
3. Code Geass marathons somehow dull pain
4. Your blessings worked

The fitness tests at my school hurt more than this does.

I'm glad your surgery went well! :3 It can be rough... trust me. :s

- I lost my job the day before this $2,000 surgery.
- My boyfriend at the time was being a *beep* and we got into a fight because he didn't want to come up to my house for it.
- My bottom teeth were growing directly forward into the teeth in front of it instead of up, so I was in so much pain. >_<
- The stuff they gave me to knock me out made me nauseous, so after the surgery, I spent the rest of the day vomiting every half hour or so (which re-opened the wounds in my mouth that were trying to heal...).

After the day of it, things started getting better, but my wisdom teeth experience was pretty atrocious. xD It's usually not that bad. I just have horrible luck.
