When I was 13 years old I went into the Hospital and had my Wisdom Teeth removed. They were impacted and a real bear to get out, thus the dental surgeon insisted that I go in for a few days. (I’m sure in this day and age, the Insurance Companies would not have allowed it, but…)
Anyway, I remember when I came to after the surgery and my face had already swollen, I could hardly open my mouth and forget about eating. Even the promises of ice cream couldn’t make me attempt it.
I was in for three days, heavily and happily medicated, and once I could at least swallow I was allowed to go home. I have a lot of sympathy for anyone going through four extractions at one time!
