After the procedure was finished and I was allowed to go home, the anesthetics started to wear off. My dad was supposed to get my medicine immediately after we left the office, but he didn't. So I was sitting in really bad pain for about 2 hours until he brought the medicine to me. After I took my pain killers and antibiotics I was ready to sleep, but I couldn't. Something in the medicine had me hyped up and I found it very difficult to sleep. I went to bed very late because I pretty much didn't have a choice. I'm glad I had my brother and mom to keep me company and watching movies with them helped me to keep my mind off the pain.
I thought I would start feeling better by then, but I felt no change. I still could barely open my jaw and had to keep eating mushy foods. They say to rest for the first three days and you should be fine, but it took me about two weeks to start feeling a change.
All in all, the recovery for me was horrible. I experienced heartburn, nausea, and stomach pains. I took my medicine with my meals and took my antibiotics as they prescribed. But still I got really sick out of the blue and my immune system was very week three weeks after the procedure straight. Its amazing though, how your gums heal and become how they were before your teeth grew in.
