Sorry, it's me again.
Today it's exactly two weeks since my surgery and I still have pain. Nothing unbearable, and I don't have to take painkillers, but it still hurts.
I am still on a soft diet, because on the couple of occasions I have tried eating something "proper", it just hurt too much. The most solid thing I have managed to eat is a very soft sandwich with soft cheese; other than that I survive on fruit juices, smoothies, soup, mashed potatoes and yoghurt. Not very nutrious, I know, but what can you do? I try adding different bits of fruit to get vitamins and even bought some vegetable juice(yuk!).
What I want to know is: Is this normal? You hear and read about people who are back to normal within a few days and I still don't feel quite right.
I am 32 years old, and the oral surgeon did say the teeth were difficult to remove, but I was just wondering how much longer this is going to carry on. I wish I could eat nice things again, lol.
Oh, and also I still have sutures on my bottom right extraction site. They are supposed to be dissolvable, and all the other ones have disappeared, so should I be worried?
As always, thank you so much for any advice.
