tooth surgery

I had a tooth pulled, bone chipped from my jaw, and that bone screwed to another part of my jaw, and the gum resewn today. It took over two hours. It could have been worse. I didn't feel panicky or too uncomfortable, considering. Now, however, agony. I am on my second dose of Vicodan and have been putting ice packs on my jaw twenty minutes on, twenty minutes off, yet it is noticeably swollen and it HURTS. Word is, the first week is pretty tough, but things start looking up by the third day. I can do it. I think I'll be operating at a low level, though.
