As I write this I am on day 4 post op. (Not technically an "op" seeing how I was awake for the whole horrific ordeal) Anyways, I am a little worried I have developed an infection on my left side. I am very swollen with pain that throbs, BUT it also seems that I have a blister on that cheek as well, way up by where the topside of the denture sits. I'm so totally lost with the whole process, I was told to only take them out to rinse and clean them but then put them right back in. Is that normal? Also my mouth tastes and smells absolutely TERRIBLE, could that be a sign of infection? Or is that just part of the healing process? Today is Friday and neither my dentist or oral surgeon is in, so I have to wait until Monday to get any input from them. I have SOOO many questions. Any input would be so great. Thanks!!
