A week after the second surgery  
Stitches finally started coming loose today (which they're supposed to; they're meant to dissolve), and once they started, they kept on going -- a total of 7 or 8 lengths of suture came out over the course of the day. It's amazing how much the discomfort diminishes with each new length of suture removed.

I'm thinking now that I may postpone Part III until February, rather than late January, to give my upper teeth a chance to "toughen up" a bit, but that'll also depend on the dentist's preferences and schedule.

Dental pain is rapidly approaching "deep scrape", near the top of the pain list.

My 10 is still "getting the hiccups less than a week after breaking three ribs", from back in 2002.
