Icing My Face with Frozen Mango Chunks

Icing my face with frozen mango chunks has proven to be an effective method in avoiding chipmunk cheeks.

Admittedly, I had postponed the procedure for several months, but after a consultation with an oral surgeon last week, I scheduled the soonest appointment possible. Otherwise, I would have had to miss a few days of class or have the surgery performed during spring break. Let’s be serious–I’m not trading a week in the sun on a beach for a week of apple sauce and mashed potatoes in bed.

With regular doses of hydrocodone and plenty of frozen fruit in the freezer (perhaps I’ll try blueberries later…), I have yet to experience any pain or swelling. Knock on wood.

Here’s to a well-balanced diet of ice cream + Disney princess chicken noodle soup for the rest of the week.

Have you had your wisdom teeth taken out?

    Ah, hope your mouth feels better soon!! Swish that salt water like it’s your job. :)

  2. I had my wisdom teeth taken out in high school. The swelling wasn’t too bad, but the pain was! And the pain meds made me throw up so I couldn’t take much more than normal over-the-counter stuff. PS – Isn’t the term “dry sockets” pretty much the worst thing ever? Gag.

  3. I would totally do the same! Who would want to miss enjoying spring break?! I haven’t gotten my wisdom teeth removed… but I have some painful procedures awaiting me in the future (ughhh). I hope that you feel back to normal asap! Have fun eating icecream!

  4. Love your blog! I hope you’re resting up and have a speedy recovery! My surgery wasn’t too bad, but anything with teeth freaks me out, haha. Maybe it’s just me!
