What are the side effects after wisdom tooth extraction?

Hello. My 20 y.o. daughter was diagnosed with mono mid July 2018. She was treated by family physician (with antibiotics) and rested for a few weeks and her bloodwork returned to normal in early September. Mid September she had all 4 of her impacted wisdom teeth extracted without incident and completed a course of prophylactic antibiotics. She is now away at school and has begun complaining of feeling bloated, decreased appetite and says she is puffy just under her left ribs. She recently had an URI as well but is over that. What should I suggest to her? What could be the cause?

Hi,

Symptoms of your daughter seems to be due to post effects of medications taken for URI. It is not related to wisdom tooth extraction as such. You can drink mildly cold water after extraction. Eat soft food like mashed boiled potato or gelatin and eat it with other side of mouth. If symptoms keeps on persisting visit general physician once and get complete examination done and start treatment accordingly.

Hope your concern has been resolved.
