just thought i'd share that. ugh. day 2 of antibiotics and im still getting random bouts of pain. i even at times feel pressure in my eyes, the back of my neck is sore and stiff. last night just before bed i was in so much pain i was trembling and had to fall asleep with an ice pack on my face. thankfully today it's been manageable since the antibiotic is kicking in. i cant wait to get these f**ers out!
question: if you had a wisdom tooth that didn't come in all the way, did the oral surgeon have to cut away at the gums? my bottom one, its hard to explain, you can see the whole top of the tooth but the sides are still hidden under the gums. there isn't anything to grab onto. im just nervous because ive only had a brittle, broken away fully grown in wisdom tooth pulled and it took a matter of minutes. the thought of the surgeon cutting and prodding at my mouth for a long period of time freaks me out, and i know there is the added complication of it still being attached to the jaw. :(

Never had to deal with the wisdom tooth deal- my sympathies. Just regular toothaches are awful enough as it is. I just pulled out part of a filling last night on a stupid Tootsie Roll. Needless to say, I have to call the dentist on Monday to get it fixed before it starts giving me problems.

I had two impacted wisdom teeth removed when I was 21. I was asleep for the procedure. They gave me vicodin. I took one & crawled to the toilet & puked. I only needed Tylenol. No problems or real bad pain at all. You will be fine!
