Define "a lot" because of all my friends that have had anesthesia never felt that. Nor did I.
"People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." - Mark Dantonio.
They told me mine weren't too bad. They got me on hydocodone too so that should be good.
I have to get all 4 of mine out and everyone of them is inside the gums......what am I looking for time wise for recovery....I could care less about the food I figured I would eat fucking jello for 2 weeks so whatever.....But I have work and school to worry about because doc wants it done soon.....I gone for how long?
To die in ann arbor is redundant

Not quite two hours later, but I was eating tacos the day after getting mine out.
Smoke a ton of cigarettes and drink a lot of McDonald's milkshakes from the straw and you will feel much better.
I felt fine the day I got them out but it hurt pretty bad the following day. Ice packs and a few of the Tylenol 3 they gave me and I got through it. After that was pretty much fine. Everyones different though. One of my friends said he spent the rest of the day being sick from the anesthetic and I did not experience that at all.
Follow the doctors instructions to the letter. Do not be stupid and mess around with that and try to do things too soon. You DO NOT!! want a dry socket. Do NOT smoke or drink through a straw or drink anything fizzy for at least a week, 2 would be better.
Ask the doctor if you can take home the irrigating syringe. Do not use it for at least 2+ weeks, but after that you will really want it for keeping food out of the holes. You will probably have little holes back there for a few months (mine stayed for like a year) where food gets caught and that's nasty. Almost puked the first time I cleaned them out with the syringe, it tasted like poop.
When you sell your 2013 Michigan ticket..
Just take the Vic and use plenty of ice, Jack. Takes away the pain and helps you get to sleep as well. Takes probably three or four days. You'll be surprised at how quickly you go from feeling crappy to feeling like you didn't just have a guy yanking teeth from your head. It's a quick recovery given the procedure.
Edit: Fuck just saw this thread was from a year ago

i was in LA, 1973, just hangin' around, seal beach area. wisdom teeth needed to come out, impacted etc. hitched to whatever the hell hosp. is somewhere near downtown, gave a fake address and got the whole ordeal(knocked out etc.) completed for free.old school semi-socialist cali. the free market ain't 'bout to hear that sh@# nowadays.whatever, it's your world now.
I had a wisdom tooth pulled on Tuesday Nov. 27th. The Vicodin worked pretty well until the following Sunday night when all of my teeth started throbbing and I was up all night. I went to the oral surgeon on Monday and it turned out that I had a dry socket. They cleaned it out and packed it with this stringy brown material that made my mouth taste like garden hose water for the next week and it gave me such an unexpected buzz the next day that I was caught off guard at work when my boss found me walking around aimlessly looking for a pen and I was really out of it. I had to get a ride home. I think I had a reaction to the brown stuff because my wife has had that stuff used on her and it didn't cause any problem.
I followed the directions regarding cleaning and eating and I still got a dry socket. I just stopped taking Motrin 3 days ago and I am eating normally again and I have no pain. However, food keeps getting packed into the depression where the wisdom tooth was and I have to get my finger in there and poke it out. It doesn't hurt to do that, so I guess I am fully recovered now.
Give them NOTHING but take from them EVERYTHING.
You are going to hurt more the day or two afterward. And getting food in the sockets hurts really bad.
See my post about asking the OS for an irrigating syringe. I bet if you called them up now they would still give you one. It really helps with keeping it clean.
you would think evolution would have taken care of the wisdom teeth issue since they serve no purpose.
Do the holes last that long in the back of your mouth? How long is it until you can eat normally without worrying about shit sticking in there?
They gave me one, only not until the second visit when I had the dry socket. It definitely helped keep it clean. Now that it doesn't hurt any more my finger works pretty well - I'm too afraid to try a toothpick just yet!
People are different i guess but mine were still there for sure at my next cleaning because I remember the hygienist cleaning them out and it felt weird. Not pain but just weird feeling. I would guess they were still catching food like 4 months later. i don't think they were 100% leveled out for like a year.
Edited to add- it probably depends how much bone they have to take out to get to the impacted tooth.

Appreciate the words of wisdom, but as you stated, I've long been over the wisdom teeth.
I always stay true brah.
I had all four of mine taken out and they were impacted. I didn't get put to sleep and I got tylenol 3 not vicodin. I ate jello and soup for 2 days and watched the NFL draft. Then I got over that shit.
I had all four taken out when I was 18. Was put to sleep, felt lousy for most of that day but felt fine the next day and actually went out and played a round of golf and had some chicken tenders at Burger King, just chewed carefully towards the front of my mouth. Make sure that you keep them clean, gargle, rinse, whatever the doctor says. I also agree with the people who said to make sure you get an irrigating syringe from the doctor, it really helps.
Had all 4 of mine out about 4 years ago. It was done 2 weeks before fall semester started that year.
Also got knocked out for it, which is the way to do it. All you need to do is youtube "wisdom tooth extraction" to tell you why .
None of mine had come through the gumline, so I was left with 4 pretty good sized holes. When I came home I was pretty out of it and the parents didn't want to fill the vicodin prescription. When I started to become lucid I made sure they got on that shit, . Swelling went down after about 2 days and spent the next 4 in varying states of consciousness due to vicodin. After that I was functional but eating carefully for about 3 weeks. I was getting food stuck in one of the holes in the back of my mouth for like 3 or 4 months afterword, but it did finally close up.
Take the vicodin, you'll survive. Watch a crapload of movies, rewatch them because you fell asleep... eat some mashed potatoes. It could be a lot worse.

Being awake for it really freaking sucks....blood splattering all over my face.
Just had all four of mine out on Friday. Yesterday evening my jaw started tightening up and I have a clicking/grinding noise coming from my left ear when I try to open it/chew. Is this normal? Anyone have any advice?

Yeah, you're fine. Just give it time.
