Well, it hasn't quite been 24 hours yet, but holy schmoley. That was terrible. the pain after the removal has actually been worse than it was when it was there. More sharp, more intense, and longer lasting. Last night was horrible. After dinner I was writhing, in tears and bouncing all over the place. My jaw hurt, then i had a bit of a reprieve where I was completely exhausted.
I ended up called both the dentist and the nurses hotline, and the decided to head to the ER for a shot of a painkiller, but when I got there there was a huge lineup full of creepy people. I decided that if I was going to be forced to put up with such pain that I'd rather do it in the comfort of my own home, than in a lineup. So, we turned back around and came home, where I passed out on the couch.
I slept off and on, woke up about 3 times because of pain (keep in mind I conked out about 3am) and then got up at 6 with D.
Am currently attempting to get him down for a nap.
Am waiting for the last round of meds to wear off to see where my pain level is b4 I decide to take the dentist up on his offer of either Percaset or Demerol.
This is silly.
