I am looking for any advise. I had wisdom teeth removed and only the bottom lower left is now causing me (intolerable) pain. Here's my issue. Once the OS determined I had dry socket, they packed it with the nasty medicated clove dressing. I was so sick and nausiated that I had them take it out after 1 day. Then the pain was intolerable again so I had them put it back in and same result. I was sooooo sick. I had them remove it again. I have 2 prescription pain medsToradol and Norco. These work for the normal pain until I IRRIGATE! I have capitalized this because this the most horrid and intolerable pain ever! I know what some of you might be thinking, but the dressing back in but I just can't. I'm looking for recommendations on food to eat to avoid irrigating. Do I need to irrigate after every meal? Its been 9 days (counting the day of surgery). My dry socket started on day 4. How long will this take for the bone to be covered and I can stop irrigating? I need to work also so I feel like my only option is that sickening medicated packing.View Thread
