Yesterday (June 23rd which happens to be 2 months from my 21st birthday lol) I got all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. 2 of them were half way through the gum and the other 2 were completely erupted.
Thankfully my mom and Andrew were both able to go with me and stay with me after. I was really nervous going into it, but honestly it wasn't too bad. I didn't enjoy not being able to eat or drink before it (after midnight) but thankfully my appointment was at 8:30 so it wasn't as bad. I'm glad we did an early appointment!
All I really remember from the surgery is them prepping me by connecting a blood pressure cup, a finger monitor, monitors that stuck on my chest and stomach, and then an nose oxygen thing. I was really worried about the IV because I don't like needles, but thankfully they distracted me by talking to me and I looked away so it only hurt for a second. Then they put me to sleep and all i remember is them talking one second and being awake the next. I don't even remember closing my eyes!
When I woke up I was kinda emotional (didn't even know why lol) but they got Andrew and my mom in there and I was better. They wheel chaired me to the chair and I spend a lot of the day just chilling at my moms with mom and Andrew. I slowly started eating (Shakes, applesauce, and yogurt) and honestly felt pretty good yesterday but kept up on medication and icing.
Last night I slept 12 hours (must have been tired) and only real pain was having to keep my head elevated all the time to help keep the swelling down. Today I feel pretty good still just some random pain if I move my mouth a lot. They said today or tomorrow I could feel more pain or swelling so keeping up on meds and ice but overall feel good and hope to keep that up!
