Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The symptoms that you are explaining does not seems to be due to side effect of the extraction and is co-incidental that it happened at the same time as that of extraction but looks like some other cause.
Swelling in hands and feet is commonly associated with heart and kidney problems, so it is better to get him checked and a kidney function test, liver function test and 2D Echo can be done.
For dry mouth he can chew sugar free chewing gums and suck tart candies.
Sip water at regular intervals.
Take sufficient rest and raise his feet by keeping pillows under while lying down.

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

I am very thirsty in evenings with a dry mouth. I wake up in the night with same dry mouth and need the toilet several times, no doubt because I am drinking more. I feel lethargic in the day time. I am 48 and have been fit and healthy. Not overweight and I exercise by running and weights 5 times a week. I have also had a sore and inflamed penis which may be nothing to do with above but has arisen around same time

I have over the last two to three months off and on for a week or two at a time, fatigue, and slightly elevated temperatures, highest to about 99.7, more so if exert myself. Stay in bed and rest and still can eat and drink fluids. I don t have flu symptoms, or head cold, and sinus seem clear, slight sore throat sometimes but gargling salt usually takes care of that. No pain, except back ache after sitting a long time, that is chronic if I do work of bending too much, and wrists hurt a couple days ago, and not now, assumed arthiritis. Am 67 and not overweight. Had breast cancer in 2001 and chemo, leaving neuropathy of toes and fingers. Have granuloma anulare immunie skin condition also. Stress was a factor I believe in causing that. I will see my own doctor later this month, and labs are due also.

Hi my name is Skye, I am 22 years old, female and I have had some odd things happening with my body as of the last two weeks or so. First off I usually run a temp of 94.8. but the last week that i have been monitoring it it has been 100 even though i feel completely fine. I have been having very odd hot flashes that are very unlike me as well as a high level of fatigue and increased sex drive. My breasts are very sensitive and the nipples seem to be much darker than normal. My breasts also feel heavier and look a little bigger as well. My Fiance and I are trying to conceive but its only been about two and a half weeks since we started trying. is it possible to be pregnant and be having symptoms this early? I am using an app called Ovia Fertility to track my symptoms and everything and it says i should be testing here in the next week but my main concern is my temperature. if it isnt pregnancy what could it possibly be? please help me, any suggestions are welcome. i just want an opinion before i head to the doctor. Thank You!!!
