Yes, it can be ...: Although expecting postoperative pain, it is okay as long as the pain is slowly and surely getting better without local undue swelling and redness. Meanwhile, keep the surgical site immobilized with splint under surgeon's supervision. Any doubt? Go to see your surgeon timely. Besides, let practicing healthy lifestyle and avoiding overindulgence and obsession rule our life so to live a long life.
