The pain is real.

From the left: one split in half, top-most of it missing, and the bottom right from my mouth came out without the drill

That was also my response to FaceBook question about a picture of my wisdom teeth.

Dear everyone-who-told-me-it-would-not-hurt,

You fucking liars.

Plotting your ends while changing ice packs,

Yes, yes it hurts, and no, it doesn’t get better on the second day.

Yesterday, I teared up a bit after my numbing agent wore off, because the pain was blinding. I personally think that the numbing shots caused more damage than the extractions did, because my doctor gave me seven shots, and for a few of them, he had stuck them deep into my muscles, and when I swallow, it feels like there’s a huge lump of spikes that’s permanently lodged in my throat.

The top left are teeth from 2007...I believe? The bottom right were from yesterday; I was trying to clean the blood off of them, removing some dead tissue along the way.

I would rather go through the pain I felt during the extraction than deal with this. I’m fine with wounds anywhere except: head (I can take facial skin damage though, see: January burn incident), the nether region… and that’s pretty much it.

The cuts he made are surprisingly long, when you think about the overall size of the mouth. My bottom left cut isn’t doing so well – it’s obviously inflamed with white lining on the cut. Infection? I’ve been taking penicillin though, so hopefully it’ll be okay. My bottom right is healing quite well, which is why it hurts less. Not sure about the top left though, since I can’t see it, and I’m not willing to risk pulling in the healing wounds to check it out. Very minimal bleeding.

There’s one more that I haven’t taken out yet, and it’s the top right, because apparently it’s really high up there, and it grew perpendicularly to my other teeth… why, why must you do that, tooth???

Anyways, I’m not happy at all, and I probably won’t be very happy until the wounds have closed over, and nothing is inflamed.

Blergh. I want to sleep for a week, then come back.
