today is the first day i'm eating solid foods again. it felt good... until i went to brush my teeth after that. since it's the first day i can actually open my mouth wider, i could poke around and look at my stitches (not taken out yet because i had no time to see the dentist yesterday, so changed appointment to tomorrow arvo). goddamn! there's a huge gaping hole above my stitches and i can see my bone right through it! is that normal? or did my stitches pop open? i seriously can't tell because i havent been able to look at the whole area closely since the operation.
isn't it supposed to close up entirely over the bone? wasn't that the whole point of stitching it up?
it's one thing for me to enjoy playing with my extracted teeth and another to be able to see my own bone!
why must it be national day today? darn clinic is closed.
does anyone have a friend who is a dentist?
