Get well, I know how bad it can be... that said, the strawberry purée I got at the hospital the evening after my four wisdom teeth had come out was just plain delicious. I wish I'd had that sort of thing to scavenge off of leftover patient meal trays later on!

Quoting Dougloid (Thread starter): ....had a freakin wisdom tooth out yesterday morning and I ain't sayin' much today besides "More codeine please" but it comes out as "mawph codeeph pweeph".
You're complaining after one? You pussy Had all four removed a few months ago, didn't need any pain killers afterwards. Just couldn't eat anything but ice cream, pudding, yoghurt and cold soup for a few days
In all seriousness, having your widom teeth pulled is apparently either hit or miss: if you're lucky, no pain or very little. If you're not, it's several days (or even weeks) of excruciating pain...
You haf my thympathy. I hadh thwo of mine remofed a few yearsh agho. Ith wash a 2-hour opheration undher local anethtesia only. Ith hurth like hell for a wheek andh I kepth thpitting bloodh.

Don't worry, it's giving me great confidence for having one of mine out! Apparently it is flat on it's side and they will need to remove some of my jaw bone to get it out, that's going to be just great fun I bet

Quoting KROC (Reply 1): I had all 4 out at the same time.
I had mine out, under a general anaesthetic, and I think getting over the ga was worse. Didn't feel any pain from where the teeth used to be. I did have a spectacular yellow bruise around one side of my face where someone had to hold me down to remove a (or more) reluctant-to-be-removed tooth.
....had a freakin wisdom tooth out yesterday morning
Why did you wait this long Doug?
Quoting KROC (Reply 4):
Psht. I was eating solid foods about 6 hours after having all 4 of mine taken out. Of course I promptly got dry socket though.
Well now Cialini, that was about as dumb as Darryl Strawberry. I had all 4 out under local too, because of the shorter recovery time and the fact that I was going to Europe 10 days later. The first 3 came out easy, whereas the last one was what my dentist characterized as one of the most difficult extractions of his career. I still didn't take pain killers for long, because they make me feel like sh!t

I had 3 removed at once, during my discharge dental exam(the Dr. said "why not do it now while its free", so I did.) Local, and 3 days bed rest(had to spend it on the ship---damn it). The other was removed a year earlier due to pain.

Impacted or not? Mine were impacted. Back in the dark ages, I went in for all four under full anaesthetic and eventually woke to find that only two were gone. The gnasher basher and the patient were both at their limit after two had been removed - a hammer and chisel job apparently. So I had another trip for the upper ones - turned out they were not so bad. Not sure but I suspect it could have been wuss.
And the efflux of time may have saved you a portion of the agony too.

Quoting Sprout5199 (Reply 22): To take the Navy supplied pain killers and because I could. Nothing like a 3 day nooner
OK, makes sense...a nice legal high. Reminds me of when I had my daughter; the girl in the bed next to me said 'when they come around at night asking if you need any painkillers, say yes.' I didn't know why until that night.....absolutely wasted, and it made my stay in hospital much more enjoyable....
By necessity my daughter had to be formula-fed, so there was no danger to her either....
