Hi everyone!:) I had my wisdom teeth operation on Monday and it is now wednesday, I am sooo swollen! I didn't expect that really, I thought it would only be a little bit but I look like an actual hamster!
The actual operation wasn't that bad, I was is A LOT of pain when I woke up though mainly because I had a really really really bad headache/migraine, and a sore throat and ear ache and jaw ache and neck ache!! pretty much my entire head was just throbbing:( it was really horrible but then they gave me codiene and I felt way way better really fast after that:)
Then on Monday night I tried to sleep lying on my back because I thought it wouldn't be a good idea to squidge my swollen cheeks by sleeping on them but that was so uncomfy and I ended up just sleeping on my side anyway. Then I woke up at pretty much hourly intervals with head/neck/jaw pain and a horrible sore throat (I think that was because they had to put a draining tube thing in my throat I'm not sure) and found it really hard to go back to sleep because I was in loads of pain:( and then last night was even worseee I just felt dreadful and couldn't sleep at all, and today my face is SO massive, I look quite funny actually like a little gerbil or something but my face hurts so much! I really wanted to go look round the degree courses at my uni today with my friend but I've had to stay at home because I feel really headachy and soo tired. I really wanted to go! but oh wellll:)
I'm sorry if I sound like I'm moaning, because everyone else seemed to find the wisdom tooth operation a stressless breeze but for me it was a lot worse than I expected. It is good in a way though because I do feel like I've had a taste of what the actual jaw surgery will be like. Also I have stitches!! I only noticed them yesterday, they didn't actually tell me they'd put them in which was wierd, but I could sort of feel them so I looked in the mirror and theres big black bits of string sticking up! I hope they will just disolve away, I'm sure they'd be the disolvable kind if they didn't even tell me they were there? I hope so!!
Also I've just constantly been taking paracetamol and codiene! codiene is so good it helps so much I love it
