This Just In: Wisdom doesn’t grow in teeth!

Before Xrays of my Wisdom teethI had my surgery last Thursday. I was prepared for the worst and was hoping for the best. My surgeon had prepared me for the “50% chance that your jaw will break during the procedure”.

Luckily everything went fine. He said by looking at the cyst that it didn’t look cancerous. We will know for certain around Thursday when the biopsy results are in.

The cyst side of my mouth doesn’t hurt at all, the side that was on the nerve hurts like a dickens. I have stitches sticking out the side of my mouth and am taking antibiotics 4 times per day like clock work (I have to wake up in the middle of the night for one of the doses). I am also on extra strength vicadin, which I don’t particularly care for. It kills the pain, but I get a queasy feeling in my stomach and feel distant. It’s especially not fun wile at work.

Above you can click on the 2nd set of x-rays I received. They should give you an idea of how crappy my teeth where.

  1. I have received the official word on the biopsy and my cyst was not cancerous, just really gross.

    Thanks to everyone who wished me well.
