i swear some people act like having wisdom teeth surgery is like a mosquito bite.
you just had a major surgery. its gonna hurt. and youre gonna be out of commission.

some people are different. i know plenty who go home that morning, rest and are ready to go out.

heck, i was out of commission for a few days, and i consider myself someone who can take the pain and not a complainer.

I remember having the procedure performed. Was so nervous about it all. My coworkers, at the time, kept trying to calm me down. Even one guy said to me, I was playing in a basketball game right after surgery. I was like WTF? I remember bleeding profusely after the surgery. I thought I was gonna bleed to death. I had a really bad reaction to the vicodin, psychotic reaction, freaking out bleeding to death. Finally my dad got me tea bags and I put those in my mouth to help clotting. I believe my brother and Dad had to pick me up and carry me back to my bedroom after I feel down in the bathroom/hallway. Probably was extremely dehydrated at the time. No good. I had to have time off from work and then recover. I remember the next day my Dad took me for a drive it was nice to get out. Felt so much better the next day but still took time time recover. You look like a chipmunk.

This is nuts. I had two wisdom teeth removed with some years in between the surgeries. In the early 1970s, a friend took me and drove me home. I yelled, "I'm going to work after I take a nap." I never made it and slept the rest of the day - minimal pain. The next set was done @1977. I thought I'd be able to eat egg foo yung after but no way and it wasn't that bad. We all react differently to surgery and have different pain tolerance but I agree that you really should contact your DDS and tell him or her what's going on.

The hole in the sinus scares me but it doesn't mean that's what happened to you and it would be nice to find out what the heck is going on. Also, if the DDS doesn't give you an answer that makes logical sense, you may want another opinion from someone NOT part of the practice (if there are other dentists there).

Sorry, helpingfalcon. Let us know what happens please.

Everyone faces this pain after teeth removal, it will remain a few days. Your doctor knows better about this condition, mostly they prescribe good antibiotics, just take care of your tooth and go for regular check ups.

The skill of the dentist makes some difference, too. I had one pulled out ten years ago by a really good dentist and not only was it easy but it was mostly painless. He prescribed pain med and antibiotics but I didn't even buy them.

I will be getting another one pulled out in about three weeks but this time it will be another dentist (I've since moved from the area of my previous dentist and also my current provider has a different network of dentists) so here's hoping this one will be just as good.

I had a brutal headache for two weeks after surgery to have all four of mine removed at once. It takes time.
