Owww...>.<

So I just got my wisdom teeth out yesterday, and I'm in the most pain that I've ever been in after surgery...aaaand Anime Boston is next weekend. OTL According to the surgeon, I should just barely have recovered by then...but for now, my whole head hurts, and I've got those unattractive puffy chipmunk cheeks from the swelling. >.< I'm going to look and feel like a total idiot at the con if I'm not recovered by then, so I better recover soon. XD

Anyone else ever had to deal with something like this just before a con? Recovering from surgery, or otherwise? XD;

A-kon last year, my knee is slightly crooked so walking for long periods of time can make it twist out of place(Although its usually fine). But of course, for the con it was not fine. SO I had to bring my knee brace with me and sit down alot. Im sure my lovely blue knee brace looked incredibly attractive.

By the grace of god my wisdom teeth DIDN'T have to be removed at the time of a con, although I do remember how painful it was. The the worse thing that almost was before a con was a period scare and my periods are horrible. It came literally a week before the convention so luckly I was done the day before the actual convention.

My friend actually just had her wisdom tooth out a few days ago (she only had one, lucky), and we'll be going to Anime Boston next weekend too. So you won't be the only one

Only one? Man, that is lucky, I had all four taken out, and the bottom two were impacted. >.< But at least I'm not alone now, let's hope for quick recoveries for both of us! XD

Oh dear, I've been procrastinating getting mine pulled. I have enough painful crap to deal with XD I think I'll wait till con season to pass. I can relate with the period pain, though I'm more annoyed with stubborn bloat after all that dull horrid pain passes. You don't fell 100% in your costumes with that.

My wisdom teeth never came in. I had some partially formed uppers but that was it.

I have other issues though. Like I walk horribly wrong. I have to have orthodics so my ankles don't scream out in pain. If I walk for a long period of time (by long I mean about 10-15 min) and then sit down, when i get up I look really gimpy. Like some crippled kid from special ed gimpy. Herp derp.

...and at conventions of course I can't wear them. Anime North will be fun.

Even though it sucks, it's always better to get it done earlier rather than later. XD; My mom waited until she was in her 30's, and by then she ended up with an infection and all sorts of sucky stuff. At a younger age, at least you only have to deal with the pain~ XD

Ugh. Mine hates me. >.> I usually get really awful ones. Especially when it decides to play games and doesn't come on time and leaves me guessing... which is often. The worst was pain during a convention where two of my costumes had white bottoms.

I still have to get my wisdom teeth removed. I am not looking forward to that.

Yeah, I have a hard time swallowing pills in general, and the ones they prescribed me are huge, so I've been taking liquid motrin, which is working pretty well. XD At this point I just want to be able to eat something else besides spaghettios, mac and cheese, and ice cream. XD;

The first few days are HELL, but it peters off and you should be okay by go-time.

My secret: Grab an ice cube tray, and put a tablespoon of water or fruit juice in each cube part. Freeze it and you have some ice chips to suck on and dull the pain.

The worst part was that my surgeon prescribed me Vicodin and neither of us knew that I'm highly sensitive to narcotics. Calling him at 3 am to report that I was puking my guts out was rather fun.

I had all of my wisdom teeth be impacted... then they told me my jaw muscles were really strong so they had to cut away at my tendons a little to stretch my mouth a little more. So yeah... that sucked... I was real grumpy without vicodin then my dentist was like "I thought you'd come back for more! *writes prescription* I just wanted to make sure you didn't abuse the stuff and took it like I suggested". *eye glare*

My gf had hers out back in October I think it was... she was out for a week and a bit... they say I'll never get mine... but I can sympathize the period thing... I get so bad I can't move... so they put me on the pill to help, and it does, but not completely... but they told me that if I absolutely cannot bear to have a period when it comes time, I can skip the break period and start a new pack...
