On Healing: Post-extraction of an impacted molar

Here’s the exchange of SMS messages I had with my two “dental/oral surgeons”, following-up on my impacted molar extraction:

EJ: Haru! My gums around d extracted molar socket are itchy. Is dat normal?

Nada: Its normal po kuya, its normal healing reaction po.

Tricie: Itchy pero not painful? Cud b due 2 d suture resorbing. I’l take a luk at it l8tr.

EJ: Ok great. So I guess my entire body is also healing? My mutant power of rapid healing is working! Itchy all over. He heh.

Nada: No in dat case need to take bath na

Tricie: Take a bath! 😀
