I need your help. This time next week I will be prepped and ready for surgery. I’m having all four of my wisdom teeth extracted and not looking forward to recovery. I’m hearing polar oposits as far as recovery goes. It’s either a breeze or miserable. Panic….
Have you had your teeth pulled? Only give me the good stories Rig these answers, guys! I need support! Tell me how it was a breeze and how quickly you recovered and that you popped back to your job the next day. Right? Right….
Oh! And most importantly, what recipes would you recommend for me to have prepped and ready for recovery? I have heard everything from I was eating a steak the next day to you won’t be able to chew anything for days. I’m thinking soup? And hoping that isn’t too ambitious. Should I avoid spice or acid? I have no idea. The doctor hasn’t told me anything, so fill me in.
