It's been 8 days. That seems well within the range of normal. The clot is supposed to go away as the gums heal. You are far beyond the danger period for dry socket.

Well I had it extracted Monday at 11 am so I'd say it's now 7 and a half, I feel a little bit better now .

7 days or 8 days either way you're well outside the danger period for dry socket. The clot is supposed to go away.

Thank you so much fearful, my anxiety has lowered now I couldn't tell you how much worry I was in, I greatly appreciate it.
