    Well folks, it's finally that time, the time where all my wisdom teeth (severely impacted) all get removed once and for all. Wish me luck as I'll probably won't be able to post for a few days, thanks a lot guys!!

    Since you say they are impacted, I do wish you luck! I got all four of mine pulled in one day and I had almost no problems with it, however, only one of my was impacted and they were able to pull it by cutting part of the tooth off to get it past the tooth it was impacting.

    As for my playing, I think I was only off of the horn for about a week.

    Two malted milk shakes a day for your pain. Enjoy looking like a chipmonk for a few days. Enjoy your time off. Rent some Three Stooges videos... all of them!

    I had four pulled last year at this time (six days before the '04 Guild conference) and had the horn back on my face two days before heading up to Denver. The oral surgeon though it was crazy how quick I healed up - no swelling at all. Hopefully we'll be alike :)

    Frozen corn...

    Cheers!

    Well, it's been seven days and I still have quite a bit of swelling, it's not as horrible as it was the first few days, but in the words of my band director, "it's up to bad." I called my doctor and he said since I had actual surgery on all four points of my gums (as opposed to just yankin some teeth out), he said it's typical to take this long, we'll see how long it'll be before I can pick up the horn, thanks a lot guys!

    Don't rush it and just enjoy the milkshakes, man.

    Oh, yeah, rent Airplane, True Lies, Animal House, Trading Places, Full Metal Jacket, A Day at the Races, First Blood, and All the Little Rascals vignettes you can find.
