Suggest treatment for anemia and hepatitis B

Heather Amory, 29, asthma, anemia (iron), cured of hepatitis b when I was little and I smoke tobacco (for about 10 years now). Had five tooth extractions yesterday, prescribed amoxicillin and Percocet. But I am having problems keeping pressure off of my extracted sites during eating and drinking

Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi,

This is normal and the pain ought to improve after the first few days. I suggest you concentrate on soft foods:
-pudding
-mashed potatoes
-yogurt
-Jell-O
-white bread

Liquids:
-cool soups
-liquid nutritional supplement (e.g. Ensure)
-apple, pear juice

Smoking will make your asthma worse. If a person who has asthma gets flu, it is usually worse that if a person who does not have asthma gets flu. In the USA it is now the beginning of flu season. Please get your flu shot.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Arnold Zedd,
Pediatrician
