Behold, the Incredible Human Hamster!

October 4, 2010

Like the title of this post says, I feel like a human hamster. 4 days ago, Friday the 1st, I had my wisdom tooth removed.

Step right up! See the Amazing Human Hamster, right here!

At first, I was fine. No swelling, and thanks to the anesthesia, no pain either. But then, the anesthesia wore off, and I was blessing the beyond brilliant person who invented Paralgin Forte, and the dentist for sending a few of the pills with me. Oh the PAIN!  Thankfully, the worst of it was gone when I woke up on Saturday. It was only when I looked in the mirror that I started to feel like a rodent. My cheek was so swollen that it looked like I had put a slightly small tennis ball in there!

Today, monday, most of the swelling is gone. I do, however, have a massive bruise on my cheek. *sigh* I’m look like a  hamster who’s been in a fistfight.*giggles*

I’m going back in a week and a half, to get the stitches removed. Yes, you read right. I have stitches where my tooth used to be.  No wonder it hurt! I’m just amazed that I didn’t feel anything during the operation itself. I guess the dentist wasn’t kidding when he said that the anesthesia he used was pretty powerful.

So now I only have one wisdom tooth left, and it has to be surgically removed by a specialist.  Oh joy! But it’s better than having a tooth that’ll just cause a lot of problems later on, I guess.

    Åååååå, jeg kjente meg igjen der!!! Hadde tilnavnet lille hamster jeg, da jeg tilbrakte høsten 2007 med 2 x betennelse rundt visdomstannen, og to kjevekirurgier for å bli kvitt dritten!! Du har min dypeste medfølelse, tannpine(uansett årsak) er nesten like vondt som å føde barn!

    Huff, det hørtes ikke behagelig ut!!! Jeg måtte fjerna tanna siden den var rimelig rotten og fæl, og i tillegg vokste sidelengs inn i tanna ved siden av. Det har gått ganske greit så langt, da. Ingen betennelse eller noe. Gruer meg til å måtte operere ut den siste tanna senere. Men det haster heldigvis ikke, så det blir nok ikke før om noen år.
