That is the bugger that has been causing me pain pre and post removal. Maybe I should’ve taken a pic of it with my nail as reference. It is as long and big as my thumbnail. Yup. Big bugger. That reddish flap? Yup…that’s part of my gum. Now I know why it hurts soooo damn much.
On Fri, it hurt to even swallow after the anesthetic wore off. It is still swollen though. 🙁 I can’t wait to remove the stitches this Fri!!
Yes, I’ve put an ice pack against it, gargled with mouthwash etc…still swollen and painful 🙁 Good thing is that I can slurp stuff!! I prefer eating noodles to rice/ porridge because it doesn’t ‘flow’ over to the left side of my mouth. Ah well…stupid wisdom tooth. Should be renamed as ‘idiot’ tooth.
