Oh, to make my story worse, I didn't realize I was allergic to codeine until after the procedure and some outpatient time (just enough to get the infection meds in me, no over night, it sucked but wasn't THAT big of a deal) and I was at home. Throwing your guts up after an extraction were they have to hammer out some of the pieces really sucked. Still not in my top pain related issues. Thank your stars guys, seriously. After that, I went 15 years without any kind of medical issue that wasn't an "accident." I wish I knew how blessed I was then. I do understand dry sockets are terrible. Hopefully your daughter doesn't have that, OP. ETA: A lot of my issues could have been prevented if I wasn't a dumb college kid who thought that they were 9 feet tall and bullet proof. When the pain first started I just took aspirin for a couple of weeks thinking it'd go away after putting off the surgery. What a dumb kid I was.
