Not riding = Sadness!!

  1. This is the third day of my wisdom teeth surgery recovery, and my face is still too swollen to fit into my helmet. :mad: Getting very very edgy due to lack of riding!! Considering I ride almost every day, this is akin to an inhumane torture.

    I can definitely see the benefits of having an open face helmet now....Grrr!!! :evil:
  2. That sux! How long until the swelling goes down?

    Hope you get better soon :)
  3. Well I got a week off work as sick leave, had my surgery on Thursday and naively thought/hoped/assumed that I could spend Friday - Wednesday riding like nuts whilst 'recovering' :p .

    So I don't know....maybe it'll take the whole week for the swelling to go down! :mad:

    In the immortal words of Homer: D'oh!!
  4. Buy yourself an open face helmet just for the recovery process if your that despret :p
  5. It took my OH about 4 days before the swelling went down, and he still had bruise marks (didn't want to leave the house !!)

    Hope you feel better soon
  6. Your doing OK. I had to take 2 weeks off work as the swelling took 5 days but then all 4 areas from which teeth were pulled got infected.

    Awesome fun.
