I woke up in pain...it wasn't as bad as what I felt the following day, but I'm not going to sugar coat it...you might be uncomfortable when you wake up.

i had 2 wisdom teeth removed shortly after my daughter was born...they wanted to put me to sleep and I said no since i was bfing...all i had were the numbing shots and both were impacted...not much pain...make sure to get the shake afterwards it really helps with it.

Well, that information isn't really going to be helpful...lol. I'm in Germany, so they didn't prescribe me anything but 600mg ibuprofen. However, I went to the dental clinic on post and they gave me some percocet.

If you have the option of being knocked out, I recommend it...lol.

and I think she's referring to an ice cream shake, it will help with swelling, but do NOT drink through a straw...you can get dry sockets.

Don't put it off. You might be uncomfortable, but they should give you pain medicine. I had impacted teeth also and managed to get dry sockets as well. You will be ok. It's not a ton of fun, but you can cope. Just make sure you have help for a couple of days so you aren't trying to take care of everything yourself. You will probably sleep most of the first day anyway. You probably won't even remember waking up, if that helps! I know I didn't. Good luck.
