Ok, so I do not have dry sockets, which is great. He just said everyone has their own healing time, and mine just happens to be taking longer. He gave me another prescription for vicodin for when this new bottle runs out, and he said that if after I am done taking both bottles I am still in pain, we would talk about him having to cut open my gums and shave the bone down. Fun huh? Let's just hope my body can fix itself.
