double bleh

the top and bottom incision on the left side of my face are infected. the oral surgeon thought this would be a risk, as the gum line was infected and inflamed already when he took out the teeth on that side. i have been on antibiotics since i got the teeth extracted, i didn't think it would be that big a deal.

however, this morning, around 3:30, i tore the stitches on the top gum line. i think it is a combination of the swelling in the gum, and me grinding or suddenly shifting my teeth somehow in the night. it feels like i i have a chunk of glass stuck in my gum. the omfs' office can't see me until 11, but they told me not to take any painkillers until then.

for the record, bloody gauze tastes like old dog shit.

happy monday all.

not going to question how you know the taste of old dog shit...

sorry for the suffering, m'man. shoulda gone with the tried and true irish cure-all: whiskey. fights infection AND pain all in one tasty beverage

mm
antibiotics + whiskey = bad news.
oddly enough though, ym dad suggested the same thing.
apparently neither of y'all have heard of dry sockets.

Re: mm
heard? mayhaps.

care? not so much so. so long as you keep it wet with whiskey, why would it get dry? :-p
glad your old man agrees - good company for me to be in

Sorry it hurts. I went through it during my Christmas break freshman year of college... What a great way to spend my relaxation time... in pain...

But it will get better, and you'll feel better overall. Think of it this way: at least you won't look like a chipmunk in everyone's Christmas pictures. ^-~

get them out! get them out!
te infection i have is cuz i waited, and the gumline was infected when he extracted the teeth, so the infection spread. Nothiing to be done aboug it unfortunately.

if you do it preemptively though, it is better, it also gets worse the odler you are when you get it done!
