    all 4, so its not like i can eat on one side of my mouth.

    now, i generally eat every 2 hours, sometimes less.
    i can't eat for 6 hours before. & god knows how long till i can actually chew anything after.

    this is going to suck. question is, any advice from people who've been there on what to get?
    last time i had oral surgery & got my jaw broken, i sucked down ninja turtles pasta, & thats basicly what i lived off of.

    i guess i can do shakes without a straw, but any other reccomendations?
    i'm getting it done in a few days. thanks :o

    The surgery only made it hard for me to eat for like a day. After that you just have a little soreness and have to make sure to keep the holes that are left over clean.

    I had mine taken out 2 weeks ago, I slept the first day off (some nice drugs they give ya ;) ) and went for a big mac on the second day. I found that I could chew comfortably with the front of my mouth, and as long as the food went straight to my throat I had no problem. Basically don't worry too much about not eating much the first day or two, have a couple shakes and you'll be fine to eat again soon. Grab some glutamine if you can, one of it's purposes is for post-operation recovery.

    The T3/codeine really got me though; I've got an addictive personality and definitely started loving them, I'm just now getting back to the point I can workout properly. Tylenol and CNS depressants aren't the best things for lifting.

    the only reason they say don't use straws is because of dry sockets, you can totally use them if you don't mind that :o :o :o

    when I had mine out, they put me under... scheduled for a 10am appointment and couldn't have anything to eat after like 10pm the night before, and took a valium as soon as I woke up...

    they put me under, I woke up in the middle of them chiselling out the 3rd (lower right) and the pressure and the cracking of the tooth was quite interesting, and I don't know what happeend but it took them 20 minutes to get me calmed down and under again, i was shaking uncontrollably on teh chair, going in and out of sleep and was at a complete mental loss... after I was under again I slept till about 7pm, woke up, got into the car and immediately started the shaking again, and passed out after 20 minutes of it on the way home. woke up enough to get into the house and into bed, and again, the shaking started, and I really had no control over my body and I ended up shaking myself right off the fucking bed onto the floor :hsugh:

    that continued till about the middle of the next day and I think I eventually got rid of whatever it was in my system, or it wore off ...

    was fairly scary though

    No. Okay? No.
    They may have prescribed it and wanted him to do that. The oral surgeon my mom went to for her wisdom teeth had all patients who were getting major surgery take something like valium at home before they even arrived for surgery. It lubricates the whole process, in a way.

    Yeah when i got mine out this past summer i stayed in the first night and the next day i was eating solid food and felt fine. it wasnt a big deal at all, but food will get caught in the sockets so try and keep them clean

    I'm gonna have to get mine pulled this winter, though luckily I'm only going to do 2 of them on one side, so I should be able to eat semi-solid foods with the other side

    I can't for the life of me understand how or why it would be perscribed with those side effects when combined.

    go buy the full season dvd's of your favorite shows. I watched an entire season or two of soprano's in one sitting

    don't eat/drink anything you don't want sitting around in your mouth/gause for a while. I'm thinking protien shakes would get super nasty as it's hard to get things cleaned out. I ate a ton of spegetti with meat sauced chopped up very fine so I didn't have to chew.

    they just gave me gas and I was awake the whole time. make sure they give you good stuff afterward though. They gave me something that upset my stomach so I didn't end up taking anything after a day and it sucked.

    I used gauze once when I got home, after sleeping I never touched it again. I would suggest avoiding it if you can.

    Make sure you get some awesome pain killers, don't settle for T3s or whatever codeine they try to give you.

    I'm getting mine out relatively soon, hopefully I'll get a nice vicodin script out of it

    IV sedation ftw...

    no seriously.. best 250$ i ever spent.. i did not see one single surgical tool, nor did i feel a damn thing... go to an oral surgeon.. i had all 4 of mine taken out at once, couple of them were impacted.. i would have hated life had i been awake.. i basically just drank protien shakes.. (protien/water) some apple sauce and generally mushy food.. also find some kind of tooth pick with a hook on the end incase shit gets stuck in the holes.

    i had 3 taken out before college, it sucked a lot, and my face was swollen like mad. I also couldn't chew for shit, and just had to eat soup/ice cream.
