Recovery from the wisdom teeth extraction has been going much better than expected with much less pain, discomfort and swelling than I expected. So far the only problem I've had is a bit of swelling along my lower right jaw where the tooth that was removed in pieces was.
Diet still consists mainly of soups and soft foods. May be ready to move on to more solid foods in another day or two I think. The hard part has been trying to keep stuff from getting stuck where the wisdom teeth used to be.
