Wisdom Teeth Madness
Hello All,

I am writing to poll those of you who've done the wisdom tooth thing. I had all four of mine extracted Thursday morning and since Tuesday the scale says I have gained five pounds. I know I'm not exercising but really? I can't get that much food down....I'm just frustrated. I keep fluctuating by up to seven pounds and its mentally daunting. I'm eating normal foods [had flounder and mushrooms for dinner] so I'm not on the icecream diet. I'm just at the end of my rope. Did any of you expereince mad weight gain post wisdom tooth extraction? Maybe its water retention, I mean my face is huge and the process is pretty traumatic. Oh well. I guess this is more of a rant.

I would guess water weight -swelling from the surgery. I'd say eat normally and don't weigh again until your face looks normal again.

Hm could be a sodium thing. I lost weight because I was eating less and I don't think that the food had much sodium in it (this was in 08 so I don't totally remember the sodium content, I know for the week a lot of it was broth and whatever I secretly slurped that ended up in the wisdom tooth hole eww). However, the meds gave me constipation, so that could be a factor for you.

I just got all mind out last week and I lost 4 pounds due to not being able to eat. I had so Mich pain due to 2 dry sockets :( after I bounced back I gained 2 pounds off now I'm
back to normal. Just use this time to take care of yourself, you should see the scale move in the right direction

What kind of anesthesia did you get? All four of mine came out as a routine extraction, so all I had was Novocaine...did they put you under? If you went under perhaps the anesthesia caused you to gain some extra water weight?

I havent had mine out yet but my sister just recently got hers out. I think its pretty common to swell and gain a few pounds. Shes like 125 normally (yes Im VERY jealous) and right after the surgery she was saying she gained like 5 pounds overnight...and her cheeks were really puffy for a good week.

I had all four out and mine was the opposite of this I ended up losing 12 lbs in 3 weeks (my body always responds like this to any type of trauma/surgery/a broken bone) I really wouldnt worry abt it
I would putthe scale away until you are healed and healthy. Out bodies can do anything in response to something as stressful as what you have been through.
