Woke up in a bit of pain today. Damn, that hurts. Hope it isn't a complication.

They gave me a sheet of paper with a warning for something that can happen on the forth day, and today is day 4.

oh... well, I hope not. It could just be psychological.

Nope, it definitely hurts here in the real world. =)

It might just be a bad morning, or maybe I took the last advil/percocet cocktail too early before bed last night, and everything ran out.

I did sleep longer this morning than I have in a couple of days, so that is possible.

Just have to wait an hour for things to kick in and see.

Well, I mean...you know how when people eat something and they find out something nasty was in it. They get a psychological stomach ache. Nothing is REALLY wrong with their stomach, its just upset because they're concentrating on the fact that they might've eaten like..squid or something.

Heh, I know what you mean. The thing is, this woke me up, and at first I couldn't figure out what it was, so this particular instance was probably not psychosomatically induced.

I'm probably susceptible to that though.

I know, its a bizarre term, but I don't know if thats it, or if I just forgot to take the pills last night.


I guess only time will tell..

Are you flushing often enough with your syringe?

I don't know if I have it yet. They didn't say to do anything like that. Just gargle with hydrogen peroxide/salt water 3x day and every 3 hours with mouthwash.

So far, its under control. If it still hurts tomorrow I'll go see the doctor.

Oh. I had to flush after every meal and when brushing teeth. But this was the late '80's...

I discovered that it really hurt if I didn't take the pills. Amazing. I'm saying this because in general I find pain meds don't do much for me...with the exception of wisdom teeth.

Now, dry sockets are a serious complication (seriously painful, not deadly), so if you feel like the holes aren't covering over right or are extremely sensitive go see the dentist again...but in general I'd guess (especially if taking the drugs makes the pain go away) that it's all too normal post-operative pain. :-/
