Molar removed, tooth cut in half, jaw pain, swelling, gray green color in hole, face swelling. Taken lidocaine shots. Pain management?

I had a molar pulled 6 days ago. It was a difficult pulling, they had to cut the tooth in half to get it out and she had to give me like 6 shots of lidocaine because of my high tolerance of meds. When she was getting the tooth out I wanted to fight because if felt like she was trying to break my jaw. I am still in pain almost a week later and I feel something poking out of my gums not sure what that is. The hole looks gray or green I don t know but it s not pink like when I had my wisdoms removed. The tooth that was next to it is also hurting especially when I bite down on it and the gums around that tooth is swollen also now. My face is still a little swollen. The meds they gave me barely works. Is this normal?

Thanks for query,
Wisdom tooth if not much decayed is very strong and one gets difficulty to extract.
So this normal happening,your doctor has no fault.
After extraction she might given strong antibiotic and anti inflammatory medicines due to hard process surrounding structures are likely to be affected.
If if you think medicine not working then you can ask your doctor to change the antibiotics.
Do antiseptic liquid gargles.
Take light and liquid diet.
Ok and bye.
