      Hey ladies,

      Well, it's OVER!!!! The actual surgery wasn't bad at all. The medicine they put in intravenously was great. I just remember telling them how great the medicine was and trying to hold a convo and then I don't remember anything until I woke up and the doc was sitting in the chair filling out paper work. I snapped out of it really quick. Didn't sleep at all yesterday, I was very alert.

      I didn't get to take the first pain med until about an hour or two afterwards since we had to drive to Denton to my Grandparent's and I had to get something in my belly first. Well, that went great for about an hour. Then it started hurting pretty badly and we called the doc and he said I could take another pill (Hydrocone, 5mg/500mg) which I did and that helped. Since then I've been taking 1 1/2 at a time every 4 hrs which has helped to manage the pain. I went to bed around 11:30-12 last night but then just woke up around 2:30 kinda miserable because the last meds I took were at 7:30pm. So I just took another one but I can't seem to go to sleep which is why I'm typing this synopsis so late (it's 3:30 AM here...)

      Overall it wasn't so bad, not as bad as I thought anyway. To be completely honest it does hurt and it's slightly miserable, but if you get your medication dosage right eventually it's not so bad.

      I've been trying to do everything they said, including ice for 1 hr, then off for 1/2 hr. I do have a pretty big chipmunk cheek on the right side but it's pretty cute looking since I don't have to leave the house. ;P

      Now hopefully I will get to catch up on some sleep here soon...

      Thanks again for all your support! Courtney, I hope it doesn't freak you out too bad for getting yours done.

          Haven't been on here the past few days cause I've been having some bouts of bad pain and the meds have been knocking me out (thankfully).

          Today is Day 5. Does anyone know how long the pain is supposed to last? I'm trying to figure out if there is something wrong with the lower right one that was impacted. It is the only one that hurts very badly. It's weird though, it only seems to hurt (so far) in the morning hours and then by early afternoon it's fine.

          Sat. night I felt a stitch poking out (sorry if it's TMI ;P) of that tooth and it's been oozing a little still. The stitches are supposed to be dissolvable but it almost feels like one popped. It's poking me in my cheek and driving me a little crazy.

          I know at least one of you (can't remember who without scrolling through here...) used to work in this area so if you or anyone has any info on this I'd appreciate it!

              Oh wow - I missed your first post, which didn't scare me... and then I move on to the post today - ya that scares me! lol. Like, how painful is it?! Why are you still in pain 5 days later? Is it excrutiating pain, or just annoying pain?

                Ok - this is how selfish I am! lol. I read your posts and then I realize I didn't really ask anything accept questions that benefit me! Sorry!! So, is grandma spoiling you? That's good that it seems to feel better in the afternoon, you're right though, that is weird! Can you eat solids, or is it mostly liquids? You must be sick of soup by now! lol. I think you should post a picture of your chipmunk face while you still have it - just purely for my amusement! lol, ok you don't have to do that! But I do hope you feel 100% better soon!

                  lol Courtney, sorry to freak you out! The pain isn't what I would call "excruciating". It is enough to get your attention though. 3/4 to 1 pain pill makes the pain very manageable. It's just waking up during the middle of the night or first thing in the morning that sucks cause the meds have worn off. Overall I haven't been taking meds all day though, which is good. Saturday I cut back to only 1/2 of a pain med at a time, which was definitely progress! So now I'm wondering if maybe something (like a dry socket) is going on to make the pain persist, especially since it's just one tooth that's really bothering me now. If that's the case, then the normal stuff (surgery and normal recuperation) went fine. Hopefully that is it!

                    Haha, no prob. I understand! Left Grandma's yesterday, back home now. I did get spoiled there :) Actually my diet is much better than I thought!!! I've eaten everything from applesauce (cinnamon, yum!) & yogurt to Ramen noodles, beans and fish.

                    I told Martin to take a pic of my chipmunk cheeks (well, actually only the right side really swelled up) cause it would be funny but he thought I'd regret it, lol oh well ;P I'll be posting Mexico pics here soon which will be much more pretty (although not nearly as funny) to look at.
