empathy, or sympathy?

I got mine removed, then got dry sockets because I refused to sit there and let a douchebag botch my solo. D=<

I had 3 removed today 1 a few years ago --- i was a smoker back then so I got a dry socket. I remember it wasn't all that bad back then, although, i was like 16 or 17 ... I am 26 now. The dentist said they were very rooted and all - so I should expect to have almost a week of discomfort.

Mine were compacted. My mouth is so small, that they had to be removed in order for me to finish my braces. I was like 16ish at the time. They cracked them with pliers and pulled them out. Of course I was awake, so I felt them in there cracking them, cutting my gums, and felt the blood squirt all over the place. *shudders* All 4 at the same time. It took like 2 hours to even get bite blocks in there because my mouth is so tiny. Half the novacane was worn off... and the laughing gas wasn't exactly working...

I had all 4 of mine removed this time last year.
I had balloon cheeks, my face was bruised and I oddly resembled a bulldog. Apart from having a hideous appearence for a week, I couldn't eat anything harder then a piece of white bread for about 2 weeks. On the bright side, I wasn't awake when they took them out.
I think it was karma for laughing at my friend when one side of her faced swelled up from getting 1 wisdom tooth removed.

I had all 4 removed right before my 17th birthday. Definitely got myself a dry socket because I am incapable of staying still for that long.

No. They're just teeth that [normally] don't have enough room in the mouth to behave properly.

They're called wisdom teeth because...well...look at the time you get 'em. It's like becoming an adult (almost).

I had them removed my senior year in high school, they were supposed to take out all four and I was awake but the dentist got pissed off that I couldn't keep my mouth open for that long and only removed one of the bottoms. Didn't help that they were compacted.

So like 2 or 3 weeks later I had the second one on the bottom removed. These were not fun experiences since I was awake both times and it didn't help the second time that I did know what to expect. I got a D in my last semester of band cause I didn't play the rest of the semester. I was eating pudding for weeks.

All I can say is buck up and be a man.

About 2 weeks ago I had knee surgery for a torn MCL & Meniscus in my left knee, then developed a severe infection (staph infection) and was put back in the hospital hoping they wouldn't have to remove my leg below the knee and I never once complained publicly about the pain (and even attempted to go hunting after the surgery & before the hospitalization from the infection) so stop your whining :P

a real man would have made the hunting trip, not attempted it.

Well I did make the trip, it was 24 hours into that we discovered there was something seriously wrong (besides the 104 fever I was running because of the infection) and they insisted they take me out of the woods and to the hospital.

It was then that I was admitted by my doctor

Don't go hunting. Hunting implies the possibility of failure. Go killing. :lol:
