I had to remove my tooth two days ago, and here it is the third day and I think the pain has increase. It bled for two days. I am trying to work today, but I am feeling like crap. Is this normal? I need the money so I am trying to stick it out. I already took 1 day and half off I can't afford anymore. Anyone ever had a tooth remove how long did it take for you to be back to normal?
