I put off getting my wisdom teeth out because I don't have insurance. But then they got impacted, or something. I was unable to open my jaw. At all. For like a week before I was able to get an appointment I was living off tomato soup and things I could poor into my mouth with a spoon. - Then because of they way they were in there, they decided that I would HAVE to be put out completely for it. No arguments there. However, I had a terrible reaction to coming out of it and was SO sick for the first day or two. Throwing up like crazy while your mouth is bleeding and filled with stitches is less than pleasant.
And I still couldn't afford it really, so I only got out the ones on the one side that were causing the most problems. The ones that are still in there occasionally cause my mouth/jaw to be sore and make me bite my cheek with every bite because they are not in straight.... *sigh* I suppose some day I'll have to fork out the money for that as well. Hopefully some day I'll have insurance!!
Yeah, to Poseidon, I was given vicodin... which, for me, did not really do anything for the pain itself... it just made me "not care" about the pain.
