Wait until you get dry sockets and let us know if things are looking up.

Are the dry sockets guaranteed?

I had all 4 yanked at once. Scheduled it to coincide with the Ryder Cup. Didn't like the way percocet made me feel, so I nutted it up until I got dry sockets, then I took it and slept through most of the Ryder Cup. Miserable experience, but only for a couple of days.

I don't know if dry sockets are guaranteed, but I had a similar experience to hoosier fan, except my pain lasted about a week. I had all 4 taken out at the same time as well.

I had all 4 yanked. They put me under for the procedure. Thankfully, had no problems post-procedure.

Strange side effect - I swear I started having fewer headaches after they got yanked.

had mine yanked in college (parent's insurance) - I swear I came to during the procedure and have a vivid recollection of the dentist standing over to me and pulling my teeth out.

got the procedure done on a Friday, slept through the weekend, had to drive back to Auburn on Sunday for classes on Monday so no painkillers. smoked cigarettes the whole way and did not give a fuck.

middle of the summer, too, so that was a hot ride back.

The US Navy pulled my 4. A couple shots to numb my mouth and then they yanked those fuckers out while awake. I could have sworn the guy was going to break my jaw. The one thing I remember is the dentist asked where I was from. I told him Georgia and then he preceded to talk about Valdosta HS football. Kinda odd

On the way out I got 500 mg Motrin for the pain afterwards.

Your story echoes that of a former co-worker of mine, minus the Valdosta football part. Sounded freaking brutal.

The first time I read this I thought it said "...I swear I came during the procedure...".

Thought maybe more than your teeth got pulled.

I didn't go under either. It really wasn't that bad other than one tooth the doctor had to break to get it out. It was gross hearing the cracking. It seems like it would've cost me an extra $500 or so to knock me out, and I don't like spending money.

yeah I re-wrote that sentence several times because it kept sounding really weird - even the re-write doesn't sound very good.

but truthfully, I remember they told me to wear loose fitting clothes - I have no idea why.

I remember waking up and I was FREEZING - possibly a side effect of the anesthesia?

and the doctor seemed to be (in my haze) on top of the table with me, literally hovering over me and yanking my damn teefies out.

I could have hallucinated the whole thing but I don't think so...

fast-forward to after the procedure is done and I'm running through the parking lot with my mom chasing me and then me arguing with her that I wanted to drive home.

encore performance: my first food after having them taken out was potato soup or something my mom made - entertained the entire family while I tried to eat the soup and had it all running down my face because it was completely numb.

good times - never again.

Military guy? It wasn't totally brutal but not pleasant. Saved my folks some money...

Yep. Might even have been Navy but I don't recall with certainty.

I had mine done when I was in college too. Went in, got knocked out, had all 4 removed. I woke up, my dad got the drugs and took me back home. I ended up crashing pretty much the rest of that day. Afterwards I woke up the next day and felt great. I also remembered my sister getting dry socket and the pain she was in so I was rinsing my mouth like a motherfucker.
