So, not sure if it counts as an upgrade, but last week I got all four of my wisdom teeth removed. I was under anesthesia the whole time, so didn’t have any pain. I’ve been dealing with soreness ever since then, but not actual pain. I look like Marlon Brando in “The Godfather”.
The stitches are annoying me. They should have dissolved by now, but they haven’t quite yet, and it’s disconcerting because I can feel them, but can’t get rid of them. My gums are also really swollen; it feels like I have food stuck in my teeth, but it’s just swollen gums, and it’s really gross.
I can’t open my mouth very wide yet, and since my mouth is still tender, I’ve been subsisting on mostly soup and smoothies lately. I really miss real food!
