The Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Okay, I am currently recovering from the surgery I had to go to on Monday.

The swellings not too bad, but I really do taste blood in everything now T______T

And the worse part is that I really have to control my diet... all liquid & soft foods only. Suddenly feel like I become a baby again -___________-|||

You say I die or not? I'm already underweight... suddenly put me on liquid diet... guess how much weight am I gonna lose la?!?!?!?!?!

My current diet list:

  1. Plain porridge (or 'chuk' in cantonese)
  2. Soup (canned or boiled vege soup)
  3. Breakfast drinks (supposed to be very nutritious & has alot of fibre)
  4. Soft boiled eggs (cause I need the protein)
  5. Milk (so that I can feel full...)

Hmm... I guess that's the list... you say I cham or not???? I eat (or should I say drink) alot but I rarely feel full... *cries* All I know is I have to go toilet like 10 times an hour cause my stomach all water *swt*

So in conclusion, I'm tired (cause of assignments & not enough proper food), hungry (can never fill me up) and in pain (do I even need to explain this????).

But seriously the pain isn't THAT bad... maybe cause I'm on painkillers. But it's like a numbing pain near the jaw... once in a while I will feel a SHARP pain indicating that I need to take another dose of painkillers XD

Okay, now I have a rather funny story to tell you guys. Some might find it scary though...

Anyways, I went to see the dentist for my appointment on the 3rd of September at 8.00 am. When I arrived the dentist was not in yet, so I just sat there and waited. Amazingly I was too groggy from lack of sleep to feel any nervousness...

When he came, I went into the room and sat on the chair. Or rather I kinda laid down... you know, those dentist chairs...

So he asked me if I know what was going on and we just talked about the procedure for a while. Then he took a look at my X-ray and asked me which tooth I wanted extracted.

I said "The top & bottom LEFT wisdom teeth"

He said "Oh, I think you should leave the LEFT BOTTOM one and take out the BOTTOM RIGHT one"

But I didn't want to take two teeth out on both sides of my mouth cause I still wanted to be able to chew on one side after the operation and I'll get the other 2 extracted when I got better.

I was still thinking about it when he started to administer the anesthesia. The last thing I remember is this conversation:

"You're going to feel a slight sting" *pokes the needle in*


"Okay, got it. Does it hurt?"

"Yes. Is this normal?"

"No. Means the needle slipped out of the vein."

My expression was -----> o__________O!!!

When he finally got it, I thought I would have a few minutes before the anesthesia kicked in.


The moment he injected it, I totally KO.


Apparently about an hour later, I was woken and helped out of the room.

I don't remember seeing G (who was there to drive me home).

I don't remember PAYING for the surgery (apparently I paid through EFTpos, amazingly I remembered my pin number...)


I don't even remember getting out of the office, getting into the car, the way home, GETTING INTO THE HOUSE...

All I remember is opening my eyes and going "Eh, this is my room".

It's damn scary for me ok... It's like I lost 2 hours of my life. My housemate, Sam, said it was like a date rape drug. *shivers*

And the best part is.... *drumrolls*

The dentist took out my TOP LEFT (the one that got infected) and the BOTTOM RIGHT one.

Yes... I went in to get both LEFT ones taken out...

And I woke up with one missing on each side...


Anyways, I wanna say thanks to G for accompanying me & taking care of me while I'm still recovering... not to mention cooking porridge for me & listening to me whine about the pain XD
