Well they were right about not remembering the surgery. The last thing I remember is a small cut from the IV. After that I remember being in bed, rolling over a few times and thinking that I wouldn’t have to worry about the alarm clock.
There’s a lot of swelling left and I have to admit its hurting still, despite the good pain meds and tons of sleep.
Starving, thirsty – a few milkshakes helped a little bit but I really have a craving for a big steak and some hash browns. Of course, as good as it sounds to my stomach that sounds like torture for my teeth.
I have been awake maybe six hours since the surgery and yet I feel like its bed time.
The pain of the cuts feels a lot different than the nerve pain of cramped teeth. I have to admit that the superficial slashes don’t hurt nearly as much as the deep bone pain I had been feeling before. I guess I’m being a wimp but the medicine is helping with that, buzzing my mind and making me sleepy again.
I had the same medication eight years ago when I had my tonsils out. Liquid loritab. (jeez, I Hope its gluten-free, its liquid so its worth a hope). Back then I had a prescription that would last me eight days but I felt so addicted after six days that I decided to take the pain and reject the drug. The prescription I got this time isn’t a fraction of last time, so hopefully I can watch my intake and not deal with the withdrawals.
