    Hi pspoon2,

    I hope you are feeling better. The best advice I can give you is to follow the surgeons post-op instructions carefully.

    Unfortunately healing takes time and you will feel better it may just take a few weeks.

    If it changes or the pain gets worse go back to the dentist as soon as possible as that this may be an indicator that you are now healing properly or forming a 'dry-socket'.

    I hope that this helps.

    Dr. Gwen Cohen Brown
