|just got off the phone with my mother who i think wants to kill me coz i just had an odontectomy or wisdom tooth removal surgery and she asked me to give her the names of a zillion pain and anti-bacterial meds. she knows that i can't even open my mouth at the moment what more talk and spell really long medicine names!
what's the matter with you mother?!
anyway, 28 years in this world and this is the first time in my life that i had to have a tooth extracted forcefully! i was supposed to get rid of them last year but i was too wussy to go through with it. besides, it stopped hurting! but then the pain came back like a hundred-fold!
so finally i went back to the dentist (after a year and a half) and practicaly begged him to remove my friggin tooth...and it was HORRIBLE!!!
well, not the extraction itself. i honestly didn't feel a thing! although i did see the doc wildly hammering, twisting and pulling at something inside my mouth, which of course i assume is the 3rd molar of horror. but really! didn't feel a thing!
all hail doctor noel and doctor ivan (ey! free advertisement doc! throw me a freebie would yah!)!
couldn't feel my face and tounge for at least 2 hours after the dentist removed my 3rd molar (which is about as useful as NOTHING) but once the anesthesia wore off...OH...MY...GOD!
couldn't eat, drink or swallow or even sleep until the following day (actually still couldn't eat up to now which is pure torture. guess god is making me diet now)!
my throat just hurts like hell that i wanted to cry everytime i had to swallow (even just my own saliva!)!
and the worse part is, i couldn't even talk! my officemates are currently thinking of ways to mock and torture me when i get to the office tomorrow. it'll be pure silence for them for the next few days or so.
yeah! enjoy it while it lasts stupidheads! i'll be back! just you wait!
eh! i know that there's still light at the end of this dark, dark painful tunnel. even if i'm dying right now it's better than the alternative, which is to die forever (the damn tooth has been killing me for almost a month! the damn tooth made me break my pledge to my boss not to be absent until next year!).
and i'll be painfree! or at least i hope i'll be painfree. i'm really hoping that my remaining wisdom teeth don't act up.
i don't wanna make like dr. house and be addicted to painkillers (until my stupid tooth was removed i think i was up to at least 2000mg per day). bad right?
oh well, when the swelling of my already swelled up face goes down i got three other horrific post-odondectomies experiences to go through and about a hundred dental fillings to look forward to...i'm screwed.
i can't believe i actually pay people to make me feel pain!
oh, by the way, dentists are your friends people! they are not the equivalent of a torture chamber as my father seems to think. go to your dentist at least twice a year to avoid going through what i went though.
