Waking pain

October 1st, 2003

It’s been a whole week since my wisdom tooth was extracted. Much of the swelling has now gone down and I can touch the disolvable stitches with my tongue. I’ve run out of antibiotics which I take as a good sign yet I still wake up at 5am in excrutiating agony. I discovered this morning that the surgeon has stitched a trapdoor of cheek to my gum. This hurts.
