    I twisted a vertebra in my neck. Turns out it was from riding, when whatever horse I was riding at the time would stop dead from a gallop and I'd bounce in my saddle. It happened several times within a few days and apparently messed up my spine a good one. I was in the ER three times for it before one nurse suggested I go to a chiropractor since they couldn't figure it out. Yep. Cracked my neck and I was back to normal. Ha.

    Ahhh... learned yesterday that I had an infection, explains why the healing was taking so long.

    Cowgirl: Yes, it's annoying how you have to learn a new way to eat so you don't irritate the stitches. :/

    I had my bottom wisdom teeth removed when I was younger. I was bruised and sore for the longest time. I looked like a bulldog and was on a liquid diet for about 3 weeks.

    About bruising! I started getting a big bruise around my jaw, and I could see the icky yellow color was spreading to my face. So I rubbed vanilla essence on it (olive oil is supposed to work too) and put hot compresses (this was over 72 hours later so I wasn't swollen anymore). 2 days later no more bruise! It was starting to turn green and blue but it started to fad instead of get darker!! :)

    SO if anyone gets their wisdom teeth pulled out or gets a bruise. For the first 48 hours cold compresses will diminish the bruise you'll get, and hot compresses after that will help drain away the blood and stop you from turning all the colors of the rainbow. :P

    My daughter had hers out last month. The two on the top were pulled, and the two on the bottom had to be cut out. I couldn't believe how she was talking and eating normally only a few hours after the surgery. I am thinking "her face is supposed to be swollen up like a puffer fish, and she's supposed to be drugged out of her mind"...but there she was...acting like nothing ever happened. I was surprised... she never did swell....not even a little....

    .....however, about 3 days later she developed dry socket.....and her world crashed down around her. THAT was painful to see...

    Ooouuch, yes dry sockets... that was probably caused due to her eating normal foods too soon. It must have taken off the early clotted blood or something. POor thing, the headaches and pain in my jaw I experienced from the infection must have been nothing compared to her pain. When I was researching on wisdom tooth extraction problems to see if I had an infection or a dry socket, I read someone had such intense pain from dry sockets, that they needed to go to the ER for powerful painkillers.

    Ouch... I'm sorry for your pain, Poseidon. Hopefully you managed to have proper painkillers that you can take while needed. If not, there should be few different type painkillers that you can take coevally or at least we have those over here. Just ask the thing from your drugstore.

    I'm still waiting my wisdom teeth appearing. Over here, they don't knock you out unless it's a special case but go with local anesthesia while removing the teeth. Have to say, you guys haven't been very encouraging... .

    Thanks, but it was last year. I'm all good now.
