Just thought I would vent my experience in my daughter's wisdom teeth. She just had 4 removed and what a nightmare for me. It took 1 1/2 hrs for preciser. The two top ones didn't need stitches but the bottom 2 did. They were inverted and broke so they were a bit more problem. I took her home and told her to rest all day and sleep. The numbness didn't go away for almost 5 hrs. She thought she was going to faint a few times so I told her to prop her feet up. She started to feel sick and did. Almost a cup of blood. I was so scared that I had to hold my cool. I am a basket case and I hate going through this stuff with your child. She couldn't eat or drink for all 5 hours and that is what happens. So I called her dentist and they said it was normal and to drink and not talk. Try not to use the muscles in the face. Wow that is very hard. She was so scared that I had to take a deep breath and stay calm. Finally I kept putting ice packs and giving her Gatorade in a medicine cup so she could drink a little. They don't want her to get a dry socket.
It is night time now and she is a little better. She ate ice cream and applesauce. She is also drinking still a little from a medicine cup. Now she doesn't want to sleep for she might choke on the dripping in the back of her throat. So I said she can sit in our lazy boy chair and that way she is elevated. I guess we will decide what to do later. Prayers everyone!!!
I know this might be hard to read but you all might have to go through this one day yourselves. So I am giving you a heads up on what can happen.
