This past Saturday I finally got my wisdom teeth out. After waiting a painful year I finally got 2 out of the 4 yanked out. I was awake for the procedure and it went good. I was in and out in an hour and numb from my eyebrow to my throat! Once the novacane wore off I was in a world of pain. The only thing that has been helping is ICE ICE and ICE! Luckily my freeze is stacked with promotional ice packs! During the day since I'm at work I stashed my Reusable Hot and Cold Pack in the Freezer in our break room. And I keep icing my swollen cheeks throughout the day!
