    The year we married my wife got all four wisdom teeth pulled on Christmas Eve day. She was changing jobs and it was covered under the one she was leaving, only day available was the day before Christmas. Go figure.

    They gave her Tylenol w/ codeine which made her sick to her stomach. Not fun to say the least.

    Worst Christmas she ever had was the first as my wife.

      I think a lot of those dental procedures should be performed under a general anesthesia, but the dentists don't want to pay the premiums for anesthesia malpractice insurance.
      So we just offer up our suffering for the souls in purgatory.

        I got all four wisdom teeth cut out at same time (impacted). But they knocked me out to do it.....iirc 18 or 19 yrs old.
        Was playing basketball later that day.
        Shooting trap a week later, last round, last bird, on the far right, I came off the 870 and got bashed. Spitting blood, opened the gun and placed it on the rack, walked to my dad's car.
        I was done.

        Dry socket the result. Good times. Knot and kinda sore, for months after it closed up.

        So now that I'm older and more wimpy, am babying it this time.

          I was stationed in the Air Force at Lowery AFB in Denver, Colo in 1966. The Air Forve dentist took all of my wisdom teeth out at the same time. He had to break them in pieces to get them out. It is amusing now they tell you not to drink through a straw if you have a tooth pulle. I was instructed to eat soup through a straw for 2 weeks. My jaws were so sore I couldn't so anything else.

            I missed all the fun of wisdom teeth, didn't have them. Not sure what that says about me. Our son has split the difference and has just two. Don't know yet how our daughter will make out.

              All three got their's cut out. Insurance didn't cover sedation.
              So $1100 per. And braces on each for another 3K after insurance.
              Figure about 5 k per mouthy kid LOL.

              My middle just said yesterday it was no big deal, minor for a couple days after and then fine.

                Daughter has braces now, the boy didn’t need them. Insurance covers about half. We got off cheap.

                        Happy you are an inspiration. I dream of being active into my eighties, I've seen others do it.

                        Jimbo you said,,,"I have something right now with a muscle that won't relax." Not sure of the generic name but I use "Flexeril" for muscle spasms in the back. I don't care that it's an abused drug, it works and I'm not about to become some kind of drug addict.

                        Last week I fell off the back of the truck backwards flat on my back, clipped the edge of the wheelbarrow with the back of my head on the way down. Can't say I'm not trying.

                          Rock - I think you need to wear a flak jacket and a hard hat or helmet at work.

                            I was a passenger in an auto accident back in ‘95, had some soft tissue damage in my right knee that they prescribed Flexeril for. Two days later after going back to work I took one in the evening when my knee started to seize up. Sat down to watch TV and when the credits started rolling on the second sitcom I’d been watching I realized I had no idea what the show had been about. Tossed the rest of the bottle.

                              Been burning/fatigued and non stop ache in lower back for about a yr solid.
                              Everybody sick at my house w the crud, so I bailed and slept on the couch.
                              Cannot get comfy, maybe sleep an hr, up an hr, change position.

                              Am exhausted.

                              But oddly, had two days of NO back pain.
                              3rd and 4th day I have some soreness back but like you just did work the day before, different.
                              Not really annoying. 4 friggin days in a row.

                              Now my job is pretty physical and beats on me. No relief.

                              But for some reason it appears that a nerve has settled down. If so, then again it's 3 yrs for it to heal.

                              Had damaged nerves from a surgery years ago, 3 yrs for it to heal up.
                              3 yrs for my torn sesamoid tendon to quit flaring up.

                              Of course my elbow is still screwed, but the rest of me is in halfway decent form.

                              And I'm off for the next couple of days.
                              Might actually go out and try to bow hunt (even w bad elbow- pull is OK, extend is not OK).

                              Of course w minimal sleep I might just roll around on the couch most of the morning.

                                For back trouble a chiropractor told me an exercise. On carpet lay flat and scoot your but away to straighten spine as much as possible. Then knees to chest and rock head to toe first on one side of spine and then on the other. Three times then relax straight again. Do that 3 times.
                                Another is on the floor put legs up on bed and scoot butt in close to bed. Rock a little side to side and that seems to help.

                                I used Tramadol for about 5 days for pain and when I stopped had withdraw. Don't know how the addicts take that sheet.
