Does the above title not say it all? Okay, I wanna throw a little pity party and that’s what I’m going to do. It all started yesterday afternoon when I realized the right side of my mouth felt super funky. I was getting major head aches and ear ache’s and figured it was just my mouth healing after my wisdom teeth surgery along with allergies. Not so. Always trust your gut instinct. I think I live by this. You need to trust yourself and what your body is telling you.
I knew that something was really wrong and that the allergy/mouth-healing excuse was probably not going to cut it. Basically, I was up all of last night, icing my mouth and just tossing and turning. When I finally got out of bed this morning, my face was swelling up. Enough was enough and I called the oral surgeon. Luckily, they had me come in at 9:30 AM and as soon as the doctor saw me, he asked me if I had eaten anything this morning. I knew that only meant one thing – something was wrong and he wanted to put me under anesthesia.
The doctor told me I had a really bad abscess underneath the gum where one of my wisdom teeth was removed and he wanted to work on it right then. I had eaten breakfast prior to seeing him, so I could not go to sleep for this procedure. Instead, the doctor administered the anesthesia to the right side of my mouth and got to work. It took about 25 minutes and was absolutely excruciating. This has been by far one of the most painful experiences of my life – as of today, my wisdom teeth were removed almost two weeks ago and I am still in so much pain. It has subsided a bit, but has never fully gone away. I now have a small drain in the back of the right side of my mouth along with two new pain killers.
So I’m praying to finally have all these wisdom-teeth issues resolved after this. Alright, pity party done.
Anyway, tell me what’s new with all of you snacky friends! Leave me some happy news from your lives.. I need some cheer 🙂
