    So when my wife goes through labor... I can comfort her by saying I got my wisdom teeth out?

    ...Cool!

    Got all mine out on the same day too. But that was in boot camp. I didn't so much mind the pain, but the boredom of bed rest afterward was torture.

    LOL Pand's yet to have kids, so unless you want your wife to go "charles manson" on you, I would refrain from the comparisson! :)


    Yeah why go through that pain more than once?!?! I got all 4 mine out when I was 47. They are absolutely worthless teeth that most people cannot properly clean and eventually in your later years will rot and decay, causing infections to not only your wisdom tooth roots but also can cause ear infections and sinus infections, as was the case with Pand.


    Good luck Pand and make your boyfriend (aka Barnaby) take good care of you!!! And for the record, you are normally bitchy, moody, and cranky, so what's changed? :p

    Been there... done that... have the t-shirt somewhere...

    I had all four taken out at the same time as well. I think I was about 19. I don't remember the pain so much as the pain-killers. They made me loopy as hell!

    I also seem to recall trying to eat cheese burgers and pizza pretty early on and failing miserably.

    Oh and one last thing I remember, my doctors name... Doctor Cutwright. I kid you not and cut-right he did.

    Hang in there Pandy, now you will want to watch out for "dry socket" I think they call it?

    P.S.

    I will second Bianca's advice about comparing tooth extraction to labor. I was present while my wife did all the work to bring our two into the world. I can tell you I would rather have all my teeth removed one at a time without gas, pills or liquor before I would have swapped places.

    :gee:

    If the miracle of birth had been given to man and not woman the human race would have died out LONG ago!

    Had mine taken out in fall 2009 I was downing extra strength tylenol like candy for about 4 months before hand and going to classes I got a low grade in math cause of that. then there was the absess that was so painful I couldn't eat or do anything but cry in pain for three days even through vicodin, but yeah given that or having to push a little gremlin out of my I'd take teeth pain.

    You could also tell her that sometimes when ye go to the toilet after a fierce BBQ it feels like giving birth, and thus ye know how she must feel right now.

    The result might be the same, either she taking you out with a left hook during the 3rd contraction, or immediate divorce.

    P.S.: I only had 2 wisdom teeth, I am evolutionary advanced. ;)

    I had that same thing done a few years back. It's not a pleasant experience to say the least.

    To top it all off the evil man who pulled them only felt that I needed Tylenol with codeine for the pain. What a jackass that guy was.

    Hope you're feeling a bit better.

    He was probably upset because the first words out of my mouth after I woke up in recovery were "they dropped me".

    When the nurses were walking me from the office to the recovery room one of them let go of my arm and I dropped to the floor in a heap out in the hallway. The crappy meds were payback for tattling on them.

    Wouldn't a guy passing a kidney stone the size of a pea be roughly the same? Just wondering...

    No, BS anatomy shows that the hole the baby comes out is like normally at most like 3cm (rough estimate) and a babies head is very big comparatively.

    I haven't had anatomy or biology or science for that matter in years haha.

    Chemistry makes the world go 'round. Pain killers were man's best invention... screw the wheel!

    But without the wheel you'd have to walk to the pharmacy to get those pain killers.

    Just some food for thought...
