So it is day 3 after my oral surgery…i’m still feeling the achiness and soreness..guess that’s normal. I’ve been taking the pain killers at night and boy does that knock me out! I’ve been falling asleep at 7pm for the last two nights…it really does work cuz i don’t feel the pain in my mouth…until i wake up the next morning. I don’t know why it’s always worse when I first wake up.
Today is the day i get my wires put in…i’m kinda dreading it because i have no idea what it’ll feel like. Especially just having my extractions done not too long ago, i am not anxious to have anything done to my mouth. So i get to the office and sit in the chair and wait for them to start. The assistant comes over and starts working on me…she has two thin wires in her hands and starts on the top. I first ask her is this going to hurt? She said no, you’ll just feel a bit of pressure but the pain will come a couple of days later…great. So she snaps it in, gets it into the brackets, do some twisting and she’s all done! That was quick…and relatively pain free. I only felt a bit of pressure but that was it. So it was pretty easy, all done in about 10 minutes.
So far it’s not too bad…i think having the wires in look much better then just having the brackets in. Makes it somehow normal looking.
I must say, I am getting a wee bit tired of soup though…that’s what i’ve been having mostly for the last week or so. Maybe i’ll come up with something different to eat…i can only have so much soup!
