Wisdom teeth removal

I’m getting all 4 wisdom teeth removed this week (Thursday). I haven’t let myself think about it too much but I know as the day gets closer I’m going to start panicking. I’m really nervous about the recovery (I’m in my 30’s and they say the older you are the longer it takes to heal and the more complications you can have). Anyone have any positive stories they can share? I’ve read a lot of posts from the “success stories” portion of the forum but there are not many updates in there as of recent. Just looking for some positive feedback or maybe even some tips to help make the recovery process a bit easier?
