My recovery is going super well I think. I am able to eat most things now, but after having eaten dinner my mouth was really sore. It was also sore after doing a lot of talking and laughing tonight when I went to see a movie with friends for a friends 30th birthday. All day yesterday it hurt alll of the way up into my ear, and my face still looks a little swollen today.
They gave me Lortab for the pain but honestly it is nothing like what I was anticipating. I haven't taken any of the Lortab. I took two ibuprofen last night before bed, and I will take two more tonight, but I haven't needed much else. Last year when they removed my wisdom tooth I was in so much pain I couldn't think or speak or even open my mouth. They used a bone saw that time too, but that time they used it to break up my wisdom tooth and shave my jaw bone. This time it was only to break the tooth up. So I'm doing alright. (Edit: Apparently I am so tired I repeated some of the same info as yesterday, sorry!)
Food has not been great the last two days while I was healing. It will be much better tomorrow though I still can not chew on that side of my mouth. Gym again on Sunday.
I am now so tired that I am feeling kind of sick to my stomach so good night!
