I had my 18th tooth (lower left rear molar) broken up and removed by an oral surgeon on Monday morning 5-6-13. it is now 5-11-13 and i am still in massive agony. It hurts as bad as it did monday afternoon. I am on 2 perscription narcotics for the pain, but they barely touch it. i am lucky to get 1 1/2 hours of relief and i am not supposed to take them but every 3-6 hours. is it normal for the pain to be this severe this far out from the extraction? i can understand some pain, but this is excrutiating pain, enough to make me miserable and unable to do anything. should i contact my dentist on Monday or should i try and get to an emergency clinic to be seen? i am just in so much pain i can not take it anymore.
thank you, i will try and get into an emergency clinic, not sure they can give me anything stronger than the percocet i am on but would sure like to find out, i would love to have some relief, and hopefully i can get back into the oral surgeons office first thing monday morning. thanks again.
