Severe pain in back, bottom molars near wisdom post wisdom teeth removal. Normal?

I got all 4 of my wisdoms out 5 days ago and now I experience pain in the back, bottom molars right next to the wisdom site (I had two impacted teeth on the bottom so now the bottom molars right next to where they were are throbbing). I also got some cuts as a result of the surgery, I had two on the corners of where my lips join that just healed now. But I got super sore canker sores on the very edge of my mouth on both sides, close to where I originally had the cuts. I m not sure if the canker sores are making all the pain worse. But just now, I tried using an oral anesthetic gel and instantly the canker sore felt better. I could feel my molars still throbbing in the background, not as strong though. Should I use oral anesthetic gel in the back of my mouth too? Is it normal to have pain in the teeth next to the wisdom site? Because I am going on vacation in a couple of days and I m weak from lack of an substantial food. My teeth hurt when I want to chew back there, plus when they re throbbing I don t want to eat. So I m kind of worried I won t be able to go on vacation...

hi there
A WISDOM tooth extraction wound does pains if there is abscess below. which takes a little time to go off completely. increase the frequency of warm saline rinses . put cold fermentation from outside to subside the swelling.
a complete extraction wound healing takes 3 months but pain should go off completely in 3 - 5 days.
there could also be chance of some broken root piece left inside the socket or a DRY SOCKET , or it might have caused CAVITY IN THE NEIGHBORING TOOTH ,to rule out that you need to visit your dentist again.
for sever pain you can take
TAB. KETOROL DT. ........... (SOS)
Its a dispersable tablet to be take after meals and only when it pains.( not more then 2 in a day)
If pain still remains same after 2 days please visit your dentist.

Hello there....wisdom tooth/ teeth removal differs form that of your other tooth/teeth removal... The location, position and the morphology of the tooth would determine how the removal has to be carried out....If it is surgically removed tooth, pain is very severe for the first 6 hours...pain for the initial 3-4 days after the removal is absolutely normal...its because of the chemical mediators released in the body as a defense mechanism that triggers pain....we call this inflammatory phase.... Swelling occurs because of the inflammatory exudate that develops following surgical removal..this fluid with some amount of blood, gets collected beneath your mucosa and results in swelling... this swelling starts by the end of 1st day, increases in size and then gradually decreases by 4-5 th day....improper retraction of the lips and cheeks would result in injury to the lips or corner of your mouth...that would heal by 5th or 6th day...
Continue with the same medication your doctor has prescribed....If the same amount of pain persists even after the 6th day consult your doctor for further evaluation and management.
