I had my wisdom tooth on the upper left side of my mouth extracted two weeks ago. My pain is almost gone and I did not have much problem during the healing period. My only problem now is the numbness in my lower gum and inner cheek next to the gum where the was extracted. I sometimes feel slight tingling in the left side of my mouth. How long will it take to completely heal and get my sensation back?
Also, after the extraction, I took Vicodin and I vomited the entire day. I could not move without feeling the need to vomit again. My skin was hot and my head felt light. Even after drinking a full glass of water and had a snack my stomach still felt very upset. When I woke up the next day, I was very sick. I stopped taking it on the second day. Is there any other excellent pain killers they can prescribe that won't have such side effect? I will have my other wisdom teeth extracted again once they come in because I can't clean the very back part of my mouth very well and my second molars are being compromised. I wouldn't want to take this drug again.
I would be grateful for your help!
