I had a wisdom tooth removed. At about 5 or 6hrs after surgery I felt a lot of blood. So I spat out and I saw a ball o’ blood. I’m sure that’s a blood clot.
Anyway. That was Thursday, and today is Monday night. I’ve had on and off pain but nothing major. I take ibuprofen.
Sometimes the pain is localized and sometimes I feel my cheek hurting too.
My wife took a look back there and saw no redness, and nothing alarming. I had stitches put in and they’re still there.
Can I form a blood clot immediately after dislodging the initial one?
Am I past the point in which I should be concerned with dry socketing?
Do you guys have any stories, experience, or anything that might be of some use to me?
