Wisdom Teeth

Readers,

When someone tells you that taking out 4 wisdom teeth is no big deal, slap them for me.

They are lying. And it is a vicious lie.

Here are the facts:
It’s a big deal
It’s surgery
Your face swells grotesquely
You can’t eat for at least a week
Your cheeks get hard, like there’s a rock sitting in your jaw
You can now accurately picture what you will look like if you were to gain 60 pounds
You’re in pain, ‘wake up in the middle of the night’ kind of pain
You cannot function well for at least three days

Don’t believe the ‘it’s no big deal’ morons, because if you do, you could then up like me, laughing happily Friday night and in utter shock looking in the mirror on Monday morning.

so you learnt nothing from my horror story last summer?

you know what though it all depends on the person. some people are fine others like myself it almost kills. I was basically an invalid for a week, lost about 20 pounds in that time and then it took about a full month before i could chew most foods properly.

very sorry to hear of your predicament, dont skimp on the tylenol 3s or the oxycodin

lol! I'm sorry. I had it done all at once back when I was in the Navy. It was hard. The pain comes from the bottom ones.

your throat can swell. you have trouble breathing. you lose your voice. your eyes bulge and bruise. you look like someone punched you in the face. you can become septic. you can almost die...

and i only had three removed.
