Wisdom Teeth surgery Wednesday

Postby J.K. Riki » Tue Oct 02, 2018 2:17 am

Hey online CCG family! On Wednesday I have to get all four of my wisdom teeth out. I should have done it two decades ago, but I kept putting it off because I was pretty afraid of the sedation stuff. Now I have a lot more peace about it, but could still use some prayers for a smooth surgery and speedy recovery. Or whatever is His will. And prayers for my wife who won't be knocked out during and will have to take care of me after. :P

Leading up to it I am certainly thinking about existence and mortality a lot. Life is interesting, that's for sure.

Anyway, thanks for lifting us up if you don't mind!

I had all four taken out the same day too. The sedation wasn't too bad, they didn't hook it up right initially so I didn't go down. Once adjusted I couldn't finish the sentence "I can feel it". Jay was worried because it took me a little bit to wake up. The rest of the day I ate soup and I never used the codeine Tylenol they gave me.

Praying it goes smoothly for you!

Thanks, helpful to hear!

How long was it before you had solid foods again? I have enough liquid food substances (and stuff like mashed potatoes and such) to last about five days, but if it goes more than that I figure I should be fine to go buy more, ha ha.

Whoa! That seems crazy fast! Well, here's hoping for a speedy recovery like yours. :)

Whatever it is, I'm mostly at peace with it. We'll see how it goes and fretting about it isn't going to help me much!

Well I survived! It wasn't fun. I wouldn't do it again (thankfully don't have to) but I would recommend anyone who needs to get them out do it ASAP and not wait around like I did. :P Better to have it over and done with.

They knocked me out quickly upon entering the room, but I semi-woke up at the very end so I could hear the horrible grinding noises. I was too out of it to remember anything in detail now, though, thankfully. And the pain directly after was awful, but now it's reduced to just a dull ache that I can deal with alright. I still can't feel my chin, but I think that might be because inflamed areas are pressing on nerves. Hopefully when the swelling goes down I will be able to have feeling again. If not, well I'm still alive! :)

Thanks for the prayers and thoughts everyone. It is appreciated. I got a lot of chances to chat with God before and after, and I'm hoping this makes me more empathetic towards those in pain. Sometimes I forget just how miserable physical pain is, and my mother is getting knee surgery tomorrow so I will have to take care of her and this experience will remind me to do a good job and be compassionate! (Prayers for her as well, that recovery is a lot longer than wisdom teeth!)

Well my wisdom tooth removal pain got worse, so I guess I'll call the doctor first thing in the morning. For now, thankfully have heavy duty Ibuprofen to dull the ache. Drat, I was so hoping this would go smoothly! Oh well, still very grateful. This could be much worse.

The doctor said things look like they're healing well, so the pain should continue to decrease in the coming days. I have to go back in four weeks to check on the numbness thing, though. Guess that is not healing the way it should. Oh well, still happy to be alive. :)
