Wisdom teeth?

I just got my pulled on Monday morning
I've been taking my meds and everything for it, but they are still slowly bleeding.
My buddy said his bled for 3 days after
is this normal?
they don't hurt... but it sucks seeing you rinse out your mouth and blood comes out

Just don't let it get abscess (like I did) or dry socket. Worst pain I ever sufferred. They go in a cut, then stick a little vacuum tube in to remove all the junk built up around your jaw bone. I got hit by a car back in '79 that hurt less. Just take care of the area and you should do fine.

Definition

An abscess is a localized collection of pus in any part of the body that is surrounded by swelling (inflammation).

Causes

Abscesses occur when an area of tissue becomes infected and the body's immune system tries to fight it. White blood cells move through the walls of the blood vessels into the area of the infection and collect within the damaged tissue. During this process, pus forms. Pus is the build up of fluid, living and dead white blood cells, dead tissue, and bacteria or other foreign substances.
Dry Socket
Quote:
http://www.dentalgentlecare.com/dry_socket.htm

A dry socket is:
Any socket in which a patient is having pain due to the loss of the blood clot thus exposing the bone to air, food, and fluids along with an offensive odor. This often occurs two or more days after an extraction and can last about 5-6 days. It is normal to have soreness and discomfort following an extraction.

However, pain should be lessening by the second day.
This condition exist when a blood clot is dislodged from the surgery site thus exposing the bone and fine nerve endings. The blood clot helps in the stopping of bleeding and lays the foundation or framework for new tissue and bone to develop over a two-month healing process. This condition is more common in the mandibular area and in back teeth due to poorer circulation in this area, with wisdom teeth being the most common site. Dry socket delays the healing process.

It usually takes gum tissue about 3-4 weeks to heal where as the bone can take up to six months to heal.

Include me in the dry socket club. Six months of it. A little blood ain't nothing. They're seeping and it's normal.

No smoking or sucking for next 2 weeks otherwise you will dislodge the clot and get dry socket and it blows. I had dry socket both times.

Vicodin baby... life is good!

The Navy did all 4 of mine in one day at the sub base in Groton, then sent me home for a week, bloody for about 2 days then good to go. The two tops came out 'pop' 'pop' the two bottom ones needed to be broken up into pieces then pulled, that part sucked. I think they used a snap-on air chisel, not sure, I just remember it was like high speed on a bad road, I was in that gasland dream world. That was a bad month, when I went in the decompression chamber two weeks before all my fillings popped out on the way back up from 350ft. Had to have them all put back in again the Navy way so they would not 'leak' and allow air to get under them, the expanding air is what caused them to leak and pop out. Thats when they noticed the impacted wisdom teeth.
I was under for about 3 hours, they plugged me into a set of earphones and a tape, I've hated john denver ever since and rocky mountain high gives me heeby jeebies...

thanks for all the help
I tried some advice a buddy gave me last night
put warm teabags in your mouth where it is bleeding for 5-10 minutes
some herb in the tea stops the bleeding.
I bled a little this morning, but right now (11 am) I am not bleeding at all
I had pasta last night for dinner... I really just want to eat a burger right now!!!

I just did those thick mcdonalds milkshakes for a couple of days and jello. I wanted it done and over with, not smoking was the hardest part for me. I did sleep alot but that was the meds, the military has no compunction about knocking you silly with pills. One they gave me was a whopper, I took it during daylight and work up during daylight, only the sun was coming in from the wrong window and all I could find on TV were soaps, it put me out for close to 16 hours.

I don't remember the surgery at all. I went into the hospital to have mine removed and was put completely under because of a problem with the bottom ones. And dang it, I don't remember any pain meds either. I got ripped off.
