In Sickness…

So a week ago today I had my wisdom teeth removed (yes, all 4!) which is why I didn’t write (well, that and the holiday). For those of you who think I’m crazy for getting it done over the Thanksgiving break, I had two good reasons:

  1. I only had to take 2 days off work…then we got 2 days for Thanksgiving and then 2 days for the weekend. 6 days off for the price of 2, leaving me to use my sick/vacation days for something a little more fun,
  2. We weren’t going to visit family or friends for the holiday (we kind of like to do Thanksgiving just the two of us)


I haven’t really been sick or incapacitated since the BF and I started dating, so this was kind of a new one for me. I had also

not been under general anesthesia since I can remember so I was super afraid that I’d do or say something stupid. But, I didn’t do anything super stupid and having the BF take care of me was great! He took care of my gauze on the first day and also tracked when I took all the pills.

In return, I ended up giving him all my percocet because apparently it makes me really sick and unable to sleep…after 30+ hours of not sleeping after the surgery I had to call my oral surgeon and get vicodin (a really frustrating experience because my doctor basically accused me of being a drug addict over the phone and I had to start crying, literally, before he’d give me the prescription I wanted).

The BF did all the cooking for our Thanksgiving feast (a Quorn roast since we are vegetarian along with Tofurkey giblet gravy and some of the more traditional side dishes) and it was nice to just hang out with him for 5 of my 6 days off. We did go out a couple of times–drinks with some friends on Friday night and some light Christmas shopping and lunch on Sunday, but mostly I was too miserable and/or high on painkillers to go anywhere so we enjoyed our Roku and had lots of sex.

The sex was actually kind of interesting because a) the cocktail of prescriptions I was on had me very dehydrated so we had to keep using Wet in order to have sex at all, and b) because antibiotics can interfere with the birth control pill and we didn’t want to use a condom, he had to pull out EVERY TIME and come on my stomach (or back/butt). But this was kind of something different from how our sex life is usually so it was kind of exciting…now he can’t wait for me to have my follow-up (a week from today) so I can give him head again. We’re both excited for that!

Aside from a huge fight (well, huge by our standards…by most people’s it probably wasn’t much) in the last month and a half or two months we’re more solid than we’ve ever been. So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’d like to say I’m thankful for him!

    You definitely got a good one girl! You’re right to be thankful. Sounds like a fabulous holiday despite the ‘ouch’ factor.

    You could print up flyers on how to enjoy sex after a root canal, and sell them at dentist offices all over America. Hell, the world! Too funny. Hope you feel better soon.

    pull out? not that safe, actually.

    Ordinarily, I’d agree, Nadine. However, since the studies that show the effect between birth control and antibiotics is minimal for the majority of people, and I was continuing to take the pill anyway, we felt pretty safe.

    However, I decided to take my week off of the pill following the end of my antibiotics and have a period just to be sure. (I take the generic form of Seasonale and would only have 4 periods a year, but I usually skip my week off at the end of each pack and have a period once a year or so.)

    My period started today, so we’re all good!

    I’m with Dad’s House: I can see your next post about “great sex after having your wisdom teeth removed.”

    I have NEVER heard of someone getting all 4 out at once. OMG.

    I still have all of mine…. Hey, I should use that in my new online dating profile? “Still have all my wisdom teeth.” Ha.

    On the one hand, I definitely wouldn’t recommend all 4 out at once…my mouth hurt too badly to eat for a week, and then I had a constant migraine for another week.

    I am only now to the point where I am not either a) on vicodin, or b) taking EXORBITANT amounts of OTC pain killers. On the other hand, I wouldn’t have this operation done again, so it’s probably good I got all 4 at once. It would be very, VERY hard to convince me to do this again!

    As far as sex, the fact that I was supposed to be taking it easy made him insatiable. I have my two-week checkup tomorrow, and if everything’s okay then I can start giving him head again. He’s dying for it because I never say no, and then for 2 weeks I made him wait!
