The surgery itself is easy peasy, nothing to worry about there. Unless you keep your evil plans in your wisdom teeth that is.

For after the weirdest, but most successful pain reliever for me was swishing saltwater around in my mouth. I have no idea why that works, but it does. I refused to believe it would, and it did, so I'm counting out psychological. And for me, using straws was right out, creating the pressure needed to use it just caused pain. And oh god, whatever you do, hot soup right after is a terrible idea, no matter how much you want it.

I'm not over-worried about the surgery. Mostly the anesthetic. I've never had problems in the past, and I'm pretty hearty. Just some lingering concern mostly since I don't know the docs too well.

No straws. Just spoons, edamame ice packs and salt water. When I had mouth surgery before to remove a tooth that a fell on (it got jammed back into my gum) salt water did really well to keep the stitches and incisions clean.
