I had my wisdom teeth pulled last Thursday. All four of them. BLAH. I'm still not feeling 100% but I'm glad I'm this far along in the healing process already.
I never really had any pain or problems associated with my wisdom teeth. But, I just spend a pretty penny on Invisalign (post to come later), and I didn't want those little jerks under the gums to shift my now perfectly straight teeth.
Also, once taking a look at the X-rays, those jerks were big and sideways and looking like they were definitely up to no good. So they had to go.
I haven't had any type of surgery since I was about seven when they cut my abnormally large tonsils out of my throat. (Apparently they were trying to strangle me.) I guess that's the reason I was a hot mess last Thursday morning. I just didn't know what to expect and I was nervous about being sedated. As soon as the nurses started hooking me up I lost it.
Luckily, they just pump a bunch of stuff in your veins and you pass out and wake up 45 minutes later talking all kinds of nonsense. The doctor told Tim they gave me more "juice" than others since I was all worked up. Apparently I'm not great with any type of medical procedure. Looking forward to pregnancy.. whoo hoo!
Four teeth lighter. They told Tim they were so big they had to use a drill. Thank whoever invented sedation meds for said sedation meds.
There is a video of me in the car after surgery and I must admit it is hysterical. But I look absolutely ridiculous and pathetic so I'm not sure I'm ready to post it on the big bad blog. Facebook was hard enough.
Now on day 5, I feel better in terms of not being in as much pain and not being dizzy from all the meds. But I still feel like there are big blueberries shoved behind my teeth and I so badly want to remove them.
Do you know how hard it is to watch Tim eat all of the things I love to eat for four days while I slurp down yet another spoonful of applesauce?
Let's just say I think we should start considering it as an alternative form of torture. It's effective.
Until next time!
