The sutures fell out while I was brushing my teeth this morning, and, while my jaw still feels a bit odd, the remaining pain has pretty much gone. I have a suspicion they wrapped the end around the remaining two molars on that side to hold it in place, and having the suture in the gap between them seems to have been irritating the gum. That’s the only place I’ve seen blood come from after the initial extraction dried up.
The remaining problems are exhaustion, probably from not getting enough sleep due to the crazy dreams, and a desperate desire to eat something more solid than soup, yoghurt, scrambled egg and pasta. I want to give the gums at least another day or two to heal up before I risk that.
