Duh. As if I wouldn't, right? (Honestly, I have GOT to stop blowing things up in my mind the way I do. It accomplishes nothing other than making me crazy.)
It was a pretty quick procedure, which pleasantly surprised me, considering all 4 wisdom teeth were coming out. I am not complaining, of course. I'm just relieved it's done & over with.
The swelling is not bad at all. My left cheek has a bit more swelling than my right. My upper mouth is not numb at all, but my lower jaw & bottom lip are still pretty numb. I have pain meds, antiobiotics, and an ice pack that I'll apply tonight before I go to bed. 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off.
When I felt hungrier after I napped for a few hours, I had some soup, yogurt, applesauce, ice cream, and a mashed sweet potato. And water. Nothing solid yet. I'll try tomorrow depending on how I feel.
I don't have any pain at all in my upper jaw, but I do feel a bit more discomfort in my lower. My left side is slightly more uncomfortable than my right. The doctor did say my lower wisdom teeth were growing in at an angle and therefore they were slightly more problematic. Which explains the discomfort. I'm good, tho.
I remember when I had my laparascopy in 2009, I bounced back pretty quickly and felt almost no pain the next day. The incision site was tender, not painful, for a few days, but that went away pretty quickly.
Thank goodness for bouncing back quickly. I think I inherited that from my Mom. :-)
News of A Kidnapping is all done & read, and I absolutely loved it! I checked out Imperial Woman from the library on the advice of Ileana, and that will be my next read. I also have Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Garcia Marquez because I do love that man. And Sons of Anarchy is waiting for me on my DVR.
