*NOTE** I read through this after I wrote it and it all sounds kind of random… I’m thinking its because of the drugs I am on so just bare with me!
I should have written this post yesterday when I was feeling better!
Day 2 of was great. I managed to take just 1 pain med at a time and could talk and was able to be up most of the day. It feels weird to be missing 3 molars that I have had most of my adult life. I do have to say that I now understand what my dentist means about being able to keep my teeth cleaner. No more gums surrounding those back teeth to cause problems. I feel I am doing good in the eating department. It sucks not to be able to eat solid foods and it can be really easy to eat a lot of ice cream which is my favorite food, next to pasta. Yum. I am proud that I have incorporated tomato soup, cottage cheese, yogurt and lots of water.
Day 3 has not been fun. I feel more pain today and it is primarily on my left side where I had the impacted tooth. I am trying to just take 1 pill at a time because I took 2 earlier and I felt so out of it even my sleep was weird. The pain on the left side has crept up in to my cheek. I’m going to call the dentist to make sure everything is ok. I am wondering if I can just switch to Ibuprofen or something that is less drug like so I can still feel normal? I have slept a lot today and can tell my mood is turning a little more sour. I’m in that state of knowing I should take the pain meds but I don’t like how I feel when I take them so I’m feeling sad and frustrated. I keep telling myself this will be over soon. I just wonder what it will be like tomorrow when my husband goes back to work and I’m taking care of the baby myself. I have been so tired and out of it that I hope I do an OK job.
here’s hoping day 4 is better. I’m feeling dizzy again, I should probably take a nap.
