I had my wisdom teeth out last night under GA. It went pretty well, and I felt pretty good last night. Sore and stiff but happy and chirpy. One was up in my sinuses and the surgeon said she'd patched up the hole and not to blow my nose for two weeks. My sinuses felt better than they had for decades, it was like a miracle. I could breathe through my nose again!
But today I feel awful. My sinuses are blocked and runny and I'm sneezing which scares me that I'll damage the patch she did or blow out my clots and get dry socket. I can't eat and even slurping up soup is hard and I'm sooooooo hungry. I haven't really eaten anything for 24hrs now what with the pre op fasting and all. I feel sore and stiff and miserable, sore throat, headache, bleugh. And am struggling to help with the kids. I still can't feel my bottom lip or half my tongue.
How long before you started to feel better after wisdom teeth extraction? When did eating get easier?
And how sympathetic were your partners?
I felt so euphoric last night that I'm taken by surprise to be just wanting to cry today. Pain I can deal with, but the lethargy and misery I'm finding hard to deal with.
Anyone get theirs out at an older age, like 35?
Sorry for the long post, seems my brain is still a bit scattered.
