Dear Followers/Readers, Thank You All for Being There for me!

I was rather low-spirited lately and I could feel how it had affected my life. I got no mood to blog, to talk and to smile. The episode is finally over and I had a good rest over this one week of hospitalisation leave too. 

I have also chosen to believe that 明天会更好...

I decided to run through the statistics and comments, which I might have missed out during this period of time..

Now I feel blessed and am grateful to know that I do have friends/public following my blog posts ^^ 

Really appreciate the inputs too! I am taking note of the comments and the suggestions because I believe this will help me to become a better blogger :D 

I will keep up with my positive spirit and to keep on blogging because there are people out there who care about what I think!

Thank You All for Being There for me!

Bye Bye My 4 Wisdom Teeth



More Pain...

I was expecting the pain to subside by today. But it seemed to have gotten worse... 

There was even a mysterious bruise on my right cheek. Nurse did mention that due to the pulling force there might be bruises developed but shouldn't the bruises appeared within 3 days after the operation? 

It was brave of me to go through 3 surgical extraction and 1 normal extraction in a day. Furthermore it was my second GA in the same year. But I knew I might not have the chance (time) to remove my wisdom teeth one by one or in pairs. It would have been more harming to go through 2-4 GAs too. Well, I have to keep telling myself that the decision made was correct. Or should I say, it was the most value-for-money and least time-consuming option. 

It was nervous few days from the operation and was super nervous the night before. On the day of my ops, I was simply screaming inside me! 

I was early and waited for my surgeon to arrive. I was the first patient and did the health check required (blood pressure, body temperature and weight check etc) before the operation. Laogong was really sweet to take time-off for my ops and drove me to and fro National Dental Centre. 

I was waken up before I was sent to the day ward. This was how I looked after my operation. The two cotton gauzes were soaked in blood. 

I slept for 1-2 hrs at the day ward, but woke up in pain. Popped pain killers and was made to continue my rest, even after the dentist 'discharged' me. 

When I was finally able to leave the ward, I had two swollen cheeks and was prescribed with medicine.

Surprisingly, the pain killer prescribed was just normal Panadol. I would expect to be prescribed with a stronger pain killer as the extractions were done surgically. With stitching involved, I really wonder if Panadol is sufficient. Isn't it the same as the c-section I had many months back? 

Maybe dentists were only allowed to prescribe mild medication? Hmmm... 

Anyhow, I tried to keep to non-solids for my meals... And the shaker blender really came handy! 

This morning I was shocked to see bruise on my right cheek and experienced pain on my left cheek even after I had Panadol :( 

The pain felt like my stitches were 'tearing'... Omg...and even spitting and sucking with a straw hurts. So i tried not to open my mouth much today and no longer able to use a straw to drink my fruit+yoghurt...


Sigh.. I think I will call up NDC tomorrow to see if I can bring forward my review appointment. 

Stay tune for update on my condition...
