One More Day at Home
I'd planned on going back to work today, but I didn't make it. I actually got up and took a shower and got dressed, but at the last moment I decided I was in too much discomfort to go without my cold pack and pain medicine.

Of the three extractions, only the bottom left is still bothering me (the full bony impaction). It has me a little concerned. When I move my jaw a certain way, I get a shooting pain into the teeth nearest the extraction, and my lower lip feels tingly. They told me there's a chance of nerve damage with this sort of surgery, so I'm hoping these effects are only temporary. My follow-up visit is next Tuesday, so I won't worry about it too much before then.

This morning flowers were delivered from the gang at my office. It really made my day. I have the coolest bunch of coworkers that anyone could ever ask for.

Maybe you could just call your Surgeons office to find out if that is a normal response.. the shooting pain and tingly lip. They might want you to come in, or at the very least you will feel better about whats happening to you.

Hope you feel better soon, I too had all 4 bony inpactions, with the bottom left one being infected so I feel you pain!.. or felt it.. it was when I was in high school.
