    It hurts like a B*%$#
    I finally had my wisdom teeth taken out yesterday, and God, does it hurt or what! Thank the soul who invented codeine, it knocks me out pretty fast. On the flip-side, I got my datafeed updated...

    They gave me vicodin that was supposed to last a week er sumthin -- I downed those in 2 days and stayed in bed and slept er sumthin....
    this was maaany years ago when I was still living with my folks.

    I would not recommend doing what I did.

    My surgeon/ortho was a kook he showed me the hammer and chisel he was going to use to get my teeth out while I was drifting into unconsiousness...hopefully he didn't do anything else while I was out!!

    Man I remember healing up from that and it was not fun I feel for ya.

    I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed just this past December. It wasn't so bad at all. They gave me a valium pill before the surgery that made the entire procedure very dreamy. The worst part was that 2nd hour after the surgery while I was waiting for my vicodin ion to be filled. After that it was smooth sailing.

    I remember having wisdom teeth pulled a couple of years ago and even in spite of painkillers, I couldn't remember how to type, never mind work on sites...

    Year ago, in my single days, I went to have a wisdom tooth pulled out one afternoon. Afterwards, I went home and fell asleep on the couch in my apartment. I didn't wake up until I heard somebody knocking on the door. I staggered up and answered it. At the door was a lady with her little kid. They were both dressed up in halloween costumes and announced "Trick or Treat!" Sure enough, it was Halloween. Well, having had other things on my mind that day, I had completely forgotten that it was Halloween and told the lady I had forgotten all about the holidy and apologized for not having any candy. The lady gave me a really strange look, but they left.

    As soon as they were gone I went into the bathroom to check out my tooth situation. It turned out that while I was sleeping on the couch, a lot of blood had oozed out of the corner of my mouth and ran down the whole side of my chin and dried. I then understood the strange look the lady had given me.

    True story. It was 1979.

    I had all mine pulled about 15 years back, one had gone bad and the dentist said that it was 99% likely they would all head that way due to being to far back to guarantee a good brushing... so reluctantly agreeing to the idea he asked if I wanted 2 done that day and two the next...to which I replied "Pull'em all today cause I sure ain't ever coming back again"

    Then after getting a mouthful of injections he asked if I could still feel anything, so I lied and said yes to ensure my whole face was numb (probably explains a lot of the weird looks I get now) and couldn't feel a thing for the whole removal, or about 3 hours afterwards... But I still remember the crunching sound of the teeth being removed.....

    That said compared to the smell of burning eyeball during Lasik I'm not sure which was the most gruesome to have done

    Cheers

    I had mine out in sets of 2 a few years apart. During the procedure it didn't hurt at all--I didn't let 'em do anything until I was *totally* numb! But the first time I remember that delay before the codiene kicked in...not pleasant. But my wisdom teeth had been bugging me for years so I wasn't sorry to be rid of 'em either.

    The second round came after one of them had become abcessed and was hurting like pure blazes! So having it out was an immediate improvement over THAT! The dentist said I might as well have the last one out at the same time since it would no longer have an opposing tooth. I figured that it would just be another thing waiting to go fubar, so I let him go ahead and take it out.

    For those two I got vicodin and I was in a lot less pain than with the codiene. Either it worked better, or the fact that the bad tooth was finally silenced skewed the signal.

    No hammers etc. shown to me but I did get a glimpse of the "forceps" (pliers) and heard all the crunching...it sounded like I was being beaten up! *crunch* *bang* *bash*

    I too went and did sites after the second set was out. It takes the mind off of more unpleasant things. (Playing a game was no good...reflexes too slowed by the vicodin...) But as for the site quality?? Ha ha, It seemed good at the time, but things look a lot different once the medicine wears off...funny how that "great spin" became gibberish a couple of days later, and those "perfectly-working links" were going in all odd places!

    hmmmm......... I was lucky they put me to sleep when they went to pull them. I am a big wus, and they gave me oxcotin so there was not much pain for days.... just bliss.

    Hey Oasis, call your doc if you need help managing the pain. You shouldn't have to be in that much pain, assuming your doctor is the humane sort.

    I had almost no pain with my wisdom teeth removal, during or after. My doc gave me sodium pentathol (I.V.) and I was out like a light. The first two that were removed I "came to" briefly and heard the sound of crunching as one tooth was being yanked. I thought, "Damn, that hurts! But whoa...who cares!" I was in a happy place!

    The doc gave me a ion for codeine but I never filled it because I didn't need it. When I got home from the dentist's office I took a couple of aspirin and napped for a few hours. When I woke up I went to a party. It was no big deal for me at all. When I had the last two removed I wasn't fearful of the procedure at all.

    I think the reason it went so well for me was mostly because a specialist removed my wisdom teeth. Someone who pretty much only does wisdom teeth removal is almost certain to be better at it than a general dentist.

    I had all 4 of mine taken out almost a year ago. Luckily I had a nice doctor who hooked me up to an IV injected some lovely stuff that made me not care about squat then he started numbing me up. Glad that happened because I am terrified about needles I just wish every doctor would do that to me before they start inserting needels.
    The pain for the first day was pretty bad, but after that it was tollerable. The worst part about the whole thing was that I couldn't eat solid food for about a week. The first solid food I had was a peice of bread and that was the best bread I had ever had in my life.

    I am still very drowsy from all the medication I have been taking, and my fiancee won't stop teasing me about my swollen face. I am glad that she has left for work now.

    On a happy note, I convinced two major vendors to drop-ship their products for my new project, my datafeed was done well yesterday, and I had a new affiliate sale today.

    I wish I could work on the creatives for the new products I added to the catalog, but I don't think I can be that "creative" after all. I wish there was some medication out there that could boost my creative senses while my codiene is still active.

    I had two of my wisdom teeth out about 10 years ago, and I don't recall much pain. I know I was knocked out while they were pulling the teeth, but I don't remember much pain afterwards, just laying in bed for a couple of days with gauze in my mouth, waiting for the bleeding to stop.

    I had all of mine out two years ago. I still have a hole on the right side. It is fun to play with when I am bored

    to which I replied "Pull'em all today cause I sure ain't ever coming back again"
    Dejavu?
    I did say something similar long time ago.

    Well........

    At least Javi mentioned the smell part of it here: Getting eye surgery in 4 hours and 10 minutes

    When I had a couple out, I felt fine, so I left the dentist on the motorcycle, stopped and filled the ion, then went to the shop to have a new rear tire put on. The bike was up on the lift when the novacaine wore off - OUCH - and I wasn't about to take the painkillers before riding it home, so I'm like "hurry, hurry do it now!!" to the mechanic :-)

    The best trick after surgery is to find someone that has already had the surgery to be nice to you. I had my tonsils taken out when I was 20, I found an attractive highschool friend to come feed me ice cream for a few days, and in general baby me

    But you mentioned a wife so you are just in for a lot of teasing or something like this if you complain.

    Good luck

    I had mine pulled, one at a time while working in a regular job.

    I loved the 5 days of medical leave I got for each tooth pulled. Well worth the pain.

    I had the wonderful experience of getting 4 impacted K9s chiseled out of my jaw and cheek bones and then ever so slowly and painfully yanked down into my mouth...now that hurt like a B*!#h. I was spitting blood for 3 days. Yumm (all oral surgeons should go straight to HELL)
