Everything tastes of cloves

So I went to the Dentist this afternoon to get the sutures off.

And she said my gum is healing slowly but still not healed yet.

And my cheek and around that area is still swollen a bit.

The area is not sore, cuma bila we touch it baru sore.

So, she packed the area with this paste that has clove oil in it to reduce the pain and inflammation.

I like cloves but not when it’s in concentrated form!

The taste of clove is perpetually in my mouth now.

And I feel like gagging everytime I swallow my saliva because of the taste.

Nasib baik lah I didn’t throw up in the car while driving back from the dentist today, but it was the worst 30 minute drive in my life, trying to swallow and not gag at the same time and still be aware of what’s happening on the road,  hehehehe….

Everything I eat tastes like cloves, it is so annoying!!!!!

And then the Dentist told me that I might need to eat soft food again until it has completely healed.

I gave her dagger looks and told her that I’m sick and tired of soft mushy food.

So she relented and told me to just use my right side to chew and bite, hehehe….

(I have to go see her again this Thursday, I am praying she wont have to put that paste again or else memang I akan muntah kat situ jugak, hahaha…)

Tu pasal, I made pizza and garlic bread for dinner tonite.

It is still soft but definitely not mushy Smile.

I added caramelised onion, capsicum, mushroom, poloni, pineapple, dried chilli flakes, bocconcini, colby, mozzarella and parmesan as topping.

Meriah pizza kita Smile.

But no use I letak macam2 topping sebab every bite of the pizza I swallowed tadi, rasa macam makan pizza cengkih aje! tensionnnnn……….

I always ingat the gum stitches tu kind yang self-degrade,so unpleasant. Stay strong kak Mynn!

Aunty LG,
You may want to consider having jus alpukat while you're healing. You know, blitz ripe avocado flesh, add low fat milk and milo.....sugar is optional. My Mama was on just that for two weeks when she had surgery to extract one tooth. Lost 7 kgs!!!! Mushy but yummy..... purrr....meow!

salam..been following your blog..kalau ada asam keping, try makan (or buat lauk lemak ke, then kunyah asam tu)..it helps reducing the swell..

pendragon,
petua orang2 tua ni memang mujarab kan and now research have been done to show yg cengkih works utk sakit gigi. Mak I pun mesti suruh letak cengkih klu we all sakit gigi masa kecik2 dulu.

Kak Kasih,
hikhikhik...flavour baru tu tapi rasanya tak kan se fofular pepperonni pizza lah ;-).

Umi,
Nasib baik lah rasa cengkih tu dah makin berkurang skrg. Tapi mmng rasa nak muntah masa first day dpt cengkih paste tu.

Anis,
diaorang tak guna yg degradable tu. Agaknya diaorang nak make sure patients dtg follow up kot, hehe

Angelina,
I told my hubby about the jus alpukat diet manalah tau dia nak lose weight qucikly kan, he ignored me completely, hehehe.
I think I will overdose on it kot sbb sedap kan.

Nora,
I cuma jadi baby that night aje, pastu tak kuasa I nak makan soft food. I bantai everything yg tak crunchy and chewy :-).

Mulan,
I dah pernah rasa clove paste ni dulu but not this strong, cuma secalit aje and it was quite pleasant. This time, the dentist letak sekilo agaknya, tu yg nak muntah terus, hahaha

Azra,
Salam. Asam keping lagi sedap taste dia dr cengkih kan. But Alhamdulillah, the swelling's gone down a lot.

JieJ,
Tu lah padahnya bila wisdom teeth keluar bila dah tua, it takes time to heal, hehehe

jane_doe,
hehehe...now there's no more wisdom tooth pain but have to bear with the annoying clove paste and the swelling and the eating on one side only :-)
