I had my surgery Tuesday night. It was not as bad as I was expecting but I still felt some pain and can remember the drilling and digging into my gums. It hurt some but I was sedated enough not to be scared of it. This is not entirely the fault of the Dream Dental team. Novocaine has never worked very well on me, maybe it's the same with the sedation they used on me.
All in all, other than a kinda slow recovery, I am satisfied with what happened.
The antibiotic has made me sick and given me diarrhea. The swelling has gone down some today (Saturday) but is still quite painful. I missed several hours of work because of it. I was told it was because of TMJ that I was sore but it is not that. The pain is at the surgical site.
