I had to have a root removed on Wednesday and had 6 stitches and my face is completely swollen. Been taking paracetamol but as little as possible, but last night i slept for about an hour cos the max dose paracetamol just wasn't touching the pain, hellish.
Anyway i called my doctor this morning and he says i can take ibuprofen so long as not near delivery (i'm 9 weeks) but my NHS Pregnancy Book says only take it in second tri? Googling it says there's nothing proven but theres a slight increase in certain rare birth defects.
I'm avoiding all painkillers as much as poss but if it gets really bad again i WILL be tempted. Would you do it??
Yeah could try that, to be honest i think doctors are a bit pants sometimes, but they can't know everything. And we're all experts at pregnancy here cos it's all we ever think about!! Will avoid it i think.....
Yeah i will do, thanks for that. I'm worrying about the fact i can't eat anything but rice pudding yoghurt and soup without adding another risk to it. I'll just have to live without sleep if necessaryfor the next couple of weeks, sure it'll go soon.
