Goodbye wisdom

The time has come for us to part. Even though I had been told as far back as 5 years ago that you would have to leave me someday, I didn't want to think about it. The thought of going through all that pain made me push any thought away, saying, "Later, later" or even deluding myself into thinking, "Nah, it won't happen."

But alas, that day is here for you have grown to be quite a pain. Yesterday was the worst. I couldn't eat all day, was in constant pain, and spent the day completely bummed out. I knew action had to be taken fast. No point procrastinating any longer.

So this morning, I did it. I called the dentist and have made an appointment for 11am tomorrow where I will climb into the chair, no doubt with much trepidation and heart afluttering, and I will finally say goodbye to you, my (not so) little wisdom tooth.

Haha that was fun writing!

UPDATE (7/3/05): In case you were wondering, I didn't go for an operation. Mine was just a simple tooth extraction and it was over in about 20 min. Yes there were some injections but as my dentist put numbing gel first, I hardly felt a thing. And when he was fiddling away with his pliers and whatnot instruments, I couldn't figure out what he was doing in there. Total bliss to be unable to see and feel what was going on in my mouth, and before I knew it, my dentist showed me a very big and rather bloodied tooth, saying, "It's over."

Indeed. I was given some antibiotics to prevent infections and some painkillers "just in case", said the nurse, and injunctions to gargle after every meal. Turns out I didn't need to use the painkillers at all. When the anaethestic wore off, I did feel some discomfort and soreness but nothing so unbearable. By night, I was having solid food, although careful not to chew on the left side of my mouth. And most importantly, I'm not in pain anymore! Yay!

So how did the operation go? Or does it hurt so bad that you're in no condition to blog? :P

But how's the after effect? Heard it's real painful over the next few days.
