Glad it is over and done. I can’t believe they only want him to take Tylenol for the pain. This whole limit the narcotics thing is really getting out of hand.
Hope his pain is controlled and he heals quickly!

wow! Sorry to hear it was so stressful. We just had a consult and scheduled wisdom teeth out for my son in Feb (16 in a couple weeks). Checking in with GI about stopping Humira/MTX and definitely doing abx. This is a great example for why not to wait til it's a problem, yikes. Hope he's better today and heals quickly.

Yes, biggest lesson learned is to take care of wisdom teeth before they become a problem so that you can do some planning. We got lucky with our timing and his Remi schedule. Also learned we have crappy insurance and are footing an unexpected bill this holiday season.

DS did the Norco for one day then chose to do Tylenol only. The Norco did make him slightly nauseous, but I think he made the switch more so because he didn’t want to miss his calc test or give up driving himself to school. I wish we’d have done this during the summer or some other non-school time.

Wow - he is already back at school?? He recovered quickly!! Doesn't he still have stitches in or did they put in the dissolvable kind?

My girls both had their wisdom teeth out on a Monday and didn't leave the house till Friday. But we did the surgeries in the summer, so they didn't have to recover quickly .

Glad he is doing well!!!

Thanks Mehita you've got me thinking about this. I was 23 when I had mine out and hubby was high school. Jack has dentist appointment later this month and my other 16 year old son next week I think we will be discussing this with dentist.

They used the disolvable ones. I was expecting him to stay home the rest of the week, but he insisted on going. Today he looked visibly swollen (day 3, expected), but again, he popped some Tylenol and took off even tho pain was a four. English paper due and calc test part two today. 🙁. In his mind, the hassle of rescheduling all this school work is worse than the pain. 🙁 I just hope he doesn’t regret not taking things slower. He’s supposed to work tomorrow too. 😳

Yes - we were told swelling is worst around Day 2-4. My girls got bruises too but not everyone has those (just warning you they may show up!).

I'm very impressed that he is going to school even though he is swollen!! But I hope he's not overdoing it . But it's hard with teens/young adults - they do exactly what they want to do!

Maybe he can text you to pick him up if he's miserable? Sounds like he's pretty determined to get all his work done though.

It is tough having the surgery during school - I think doing it over the summer gave my girls the luxury of recovering slowly.

For those who have not had it done yet, I would definitely do it over a break if possible. And we were told to do it early - it is easier in teens/young adults. In older adults, the surgery becomes much more difficult.

Even though my husband had a majorly infected wisdom tooth and abscess, they would not remove it as his age.

Wow thanks guys! My 23 yr old non Crohnie has been needing her wisdom teeth out for a year now. Never a good time. She sits for OT Boards soon. I am going to push her to get this done before she gets a job!

Glad he's feeling better! And, wow, amazing that he's back at school and writing an exam!!

Of course, they'll do what they want... no point trying to tell them otherwise!
