Did they check for dry socket? That would cause more pain.
The office is closed until monday, if the pain does not subside by then, I will be making a visit there to check for that..

To further irritate the OP, I had one wisdom tooth. It came out very slickly. I felt so good I felt I had to go back to work afterward.
haha, very strange isnt it....?
Lucky you that you felt so great to go to work afterward!

If it makes you feel any better, I had mine extracted by my dentist, not a surgeon, while conscious (local block, no gas), and walked home afterward. No prescriptions. Couldn't afford an oral surgeon. One he did not suture, so it was a nasty open clot for days, I had to be so careful. The wound from the impacted one was thankfully sutured, so it healed much faster. He said it was one of the most impacted teeth he'd ever removed (and he retired about a month later, in his 70s).
Hope you start feeling better soon. Eat lots of ice cream and milk shakes (without a straw)!
Yikes! Couldnt ever do that! But hey, I dont blame ya, these oral surgeons cost a pretty penny, and dental insurance sucks so bad. But they had to come out, and since my jaw needed to be shaved and whatever else, I had no choice but to see an oral surgeon.. I cant even imagine not having pain meds, or sutures in!
Thanks though, I hope I do too. I have been eating a lot of all that good stuff (no straw!) but I am slightly tired of non solid foods...I just want a big juicy filet mignon at this point..
