Sadly the intense pain came back again.Â Big time.Â Got in to see the surgeon this evening. Went through another round of treatment which in itself was not a lot of fun.
“Unfortunately you developed a dry socket and that would have been very, very painful.”
According to the Mayo Clinic:
Dry socket is the most common complication following tooth extractions, such as the removal of impacted wisdom teeth. When it occurs, dry socket usually strikes one to three days after a tooth extraction. The most common hallmark of dry socket is significant pain.
Yes. Very significant pain. Unbelievable pain.
On painkillers again. Treatment should alleviate the condition. Back to the surgeon on Thursday night.
This has been a totally awesome experience.
