dental surgery  
next tuesday. :(

i have all four of my wisdom teeth. i want to keep them all. i want to have 32 teeth. but... i cannot. :( mr dentist has dictated that they must all be evicted from my mouth, because there is simply not enough real estate for them all to reside in comfortably.

also because the bottom ones are growing out sideways into my cheeks. o.o

therefore, i will need to do two surgeries (bottom ones) and two extractions (top ones), one of each at the same time. actually i'm not keen to do both top and bottom on the same day (top and bottom toothies on the right side will be making their getaway hand in hand on tuesday) but that would make more sense rather than have four separate procedures. sigh.

so i will be a right-sided chipmunk for a week. upon recovery, i will proceed to become a left-sided chipmunk for another week. urgh.

i've been told i will have to be on a liquid diet for at least 3 days!

!!!

Hey sweetie, ask your dentist if you can be knocked out cold if you do all four at one go. At least you don't have to watch/listen to them working :)

yikes! if i do all four, i won't be able to eat at all! :P i think two at a time would be better... though it is tempting to get everything done at one go.

hahahaha i rather suffer (hungry tummy) for a day or two than have to watch them 'work' on me

colleague says she couldn't eat for 3 days! and she only did one side too... imagine if i do all four - i wouldn't be able to eat for a week! :P

but being out cold is indeed quite blissful. :) i slept like a baby!

hmm...i think it varies from person to person. Some have told me that they could eat after a day (all 4 out), cheok had all four extracted, and he was eating duck rice for dinner the same night! hahahahaha

knock out cold...knock out cold...knock out cold!

was it all extraction only? extraction not as severe as surgery!

i wish mine could be just extraction, but no. :(

cheok was extraction, but the others who had surgery were chomping away after a day.... well think abt it la :)
