I was told it would be a simple procedure and would be back to normal in a few days. Unfortunately this was not the case. One week later, I still have trouble opening my mouth and can't chew food in the back of my mouth in fear it will get caught in the stitches. Today is the first day I can do without the pain medication, which is a relief. Food-wise, I was able to find alternatives to get the nutrients I needed. It was tough, but at least now I'll know that I won't have the complications associated with wisdom teeth!
