SO Much Pain

Well. I have just had surgery. Yes, 5 teeth have been removed and another exposed.

I have had my 4 wisdom teeth pulled from the corners of my mouth and one other pulled. I have also had one tooth which was up in my gum exposed. There is now a big hole there with the tooth just sitting there.

I am writing this in so much pain. I had my surgery on Friday 14th of May in the morning and now three days later I am having to lie in my bed and just watch TV and play on the computer, with the occasional visit to the toilet. I am still having mushy food. I am taking panadol 4 times a day and rinsing my mouth with hot salt and water 4 times a day, generally just before or just after a meal.

I have also developed the flu over the last few days so that is holding me back too. The best thing about this is that my mum has to wait on me and she has cleaned my room and put away my clean laundry so that is awesome!

I am expecting to go back to school on Thursday, although with the way I am feeling now, that is a long shot.

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, there has been no need! All is well currently. I just had my braces tightened yesterday. At first, this is very painful but after a few hours and a bowl of ice cold ice cream, it only slightly hurts and it will for the next few days. Just get used to it and make sure you DO NOT under any circumstances hit or smack your braces. Usually, there are only a few teeth which hurt more than any, but don't worry, the pain will go away faster than it came.

- When you are in pain, try to avoid taking Panadol or any other pain relief. Too much is bad. Instead, grab a bowl of your favorite flavored ice cream and eat!
