Q.

Appesectomy and Extraction

Hi Doc, I had an appesectomy done on two of my newly crowned teeth 7 Days ago, and at the same time had 3 molars cut out/surgically removed. I am still in a lot of pain on the left side, top tooth that was removed as well as the areas where the apessectomy was carried out. The two teeth that had the appesectomy done is one tooth away from the tooth that was extracted, so my entire upper jaw on the left side really hurts. My antibiotics is now finished but I have Gen-Payne left which is my life line, I take two every six hours.

Is this normal?! There''s no bleeding just lots and lots of stiches.
