Wisdom Teeth Removal - Page 3

I had another tooth pulled about 10 years ago, which was a weird experience to have while awake. The feeling of being completely numb and them just sort of wiggling it out is strange. I'm kinda glad they put me under for the wisdom teeth.
I had my wisdom teeth removed on 2/14. One was errupted and the other three were impacted. The two lower ones which were both impacted, they had to drill into my jaw bone to get them out. I still have my tonsils, and didn't want to be put under so I was awake during the entire procedure. It took them 2.5hrs to get all four out. And the one that was through the gums - only took a minute or two. The other three.... WOW. Brutal pain.
I'm still taking Advil (4x 200mg pills twice a day)... And Vicodin to help me sleep. As I type this... My mouth hurts. I go to see the dentist tomorrow to get looked at. They wanted me to come in earlier, but I was on a business trip last week. I have to believe that I have dry socket, because I don't know how the pain could still be this bad.
It sucks... All of my teeth are tender.
