Has anyone ever gotten stitches inside their mouth??
I'm asking b/c I was at the beach today boogie boarding and I caught a wave, which then caught me and pile drove me in the sand/bottom of the ocean face first! I came out of the water and could feel my face/mouth swelling up. Spitting out blood as I was crying and draging my board to the shore. Parents are like, "oh you will be alright.. put a cold soda on your mouth" My jaw and ear hurt, I can feel the imprint of my bottom row of teeth on the inside of my bottom lip... Yeah, I'm Puerto Rican and have nice lips, but now! Angelina Jolie ain't got shit on me...
Well... the pain was too much so I come home shower, take some pain killers and take a nap. When I wake up my face is killing me, I'm looking into my mouth at the damage and then sudden sharp pain!!! I look deeper down along the inside of my lip and I see a hole! Yup a hole, about 1/2 and inch wide and about 1/4 of a inch deep. Looks like a q tip could fit perfectly inside it. AHHH!!!
So, go see my aunt who is a nurse and she says, don't go to ER, not bleeding, but tommorow go see the dentist and they may have to put in 1-2 stitches!!! WTF!!! in my mouth!!!???
So.. I want to know if anyone else has had to have stitches in thier mouth.. how bad will it be???
I'm so scared!!
And pissed, b/c DUBS is in PR
and we were gonna meet....
