I had 13 extractions and an immediate upper denture put in on Friday 9/18 at 2pm and it is now Sunday 9/20 at about 3:30am. I know it's early but I have to leave for work a little after 5am and I am kinda sore. I thought I was doing really good on not having any pain and minimal swelling, but now I have some pretty sore spots. They are still pretty snug though, not loose at all. I am also getting more swelling under my cheekbones all the way across on both cheeks. Is this normal and when does the swelling normally hit it's peak? I wish I would have taken more days off work, but there was no way, we just didn't have the coverage. I know I can get through work OK as far a the soreness, the swelling is a little embarrassing. Can anybody tell me what to expect over the next weeks? I was also wondering if anyone can give me some ideas on what to eat? I have ensures and they aren't the best but I hate even real milkshakes so it kinda sucks. I tried mashed potatoes, but they kept getting under the plate and I was worried about them getting into the incisions. Any tips, tricks, or advise would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!!!!
