So it’s a week later and I’m doing good. The pain and swelling are gone, I can eat solid foods again, and I’m off the drugs. Getting to this point was not easy though. When they tell you that you can eat solid foods after two days they’re lying. It was at least four days before I was able to eat anything remotely solid. And the act of chewing is hard! Even eating eggs was hard work! My jaw was so sore after, just from the movement. It’s still hard to get food in my mouth, seeing as I can’t open my mouth very wide yet though, and I wonder how long that will last. I go back to the dentist today for a follow up, and heaven help him if he needs to poke around in there!
