I am having my 4 impacted wisdom teeth taken out on a thursday, can i go back to work on monday?
(i dont care if i am swollen- i just dont want too much pain or to still be heavilly medicated- and i will need to be able to talk)
It depends on the individual case. Most people are through the worst of the pain within the first 72 hours, so I’d say that yes, you should be able to return to work Monday. However, there are some people (including me!) who have a really hard time with the pain and might need a few more days to recover. If I were you, I would avoid planning anything really important for Monday at work – big meetings, conferences etc. – that you would absolutely HAVE to be there for. Count on being able to go in, but have the day as clear as possible just in case.
