Lack of wisdom...

erythrocytes. oh yes.I had another wisdom tooth removed this morning. My dentist was as gentle as her profession will allow, however her muscular wrists struggled with my recalcitrant roots and my lip got pinched in the struggle...
"Ouch!" I thought - nothing more than ouch, though...

Several hours later my lip is Elvisly puffy (I'm icing it as I type... it would appear to be working...) and the sad gap where my tooth used to live is still bleeding. As the anaesthetic wears off, the vampiric taste of blood is becoming a little overwhelming. I am also hungry enough to eat sauerkraut and be grateful for it - but I still can't feel my tongue and lip properly so I'm not risking food just yet, until I'm sure that whatever I'm eating isn't my own tongue...

I'm having another damn wisdom tooth out on Tuesday - who thought that was a good idea?

Better out than in, as they say...

Hm... I'm starting to think you're getting a totally bum deal from the NHS. I had all of my wisdom teeth out in one go - general anaesthetic at the local hospital. (referred by my dentist)

Went in at 10am. Back home at 6pm. No wisdom teeth no more. *AND* I still have my tongue..

I hope the next one goes ok on Tuesday. x
