    • Currently suffering from the after effect of wisdom tooth surgery this morning.

      Part of my lower lip seems to be numb and unable to move on its own now.

      Plus the bleeding is disgusting but I am not supposed to rinse my mouth or anything. Blergh.

       

      Good thing is that it didn't hurt at all during the surgery, though it was scary. Cos I can't see what they were doing to me and they kept throwing more and more blanket on top of me. Plus the needle they used to inject the anaesthesia was damn long.

      Alright, rant of the day.

      I just hope the other side wisdom tooth won't start acting up...otherwise have to go pluck them out also T_T

      Unless you are one of those few lucky ones who dun have them...

      But usually they will grow out some time or another...

      For mine two of them were growing properly plus they are quite small in size, so when I took one out, dun need surgery...

      But the other one need to go through surgery to take it out cos it was impacted...quite fast la, within 15 minutes everything kao tim le

      I have heard of people removing 8 tooth at one go O.O

      If got so many, tink better to go through the GA procedure where you will be knocked out throughout the surgery, only wake up after all of them have been removed. But think the pain going to be hell for at least the next few days >.<
