Discoloration/pain: You had surgery. There will be a healing curve. Not knowing how long ago the surgery was done, or how difficult the extractions were, the best advice I can offer you is: 1. Follow your specialist Oral Surgeon's written instructions to the letter. 2. If you have any questions, or need post surgical support (and it sounds as if you do), call the Surgeon's office.
