I went in for a checkup yesterday, the dentist said everything looks well. I've been in such pain for 6 days. He said some bone was removed with the 2nd molar which takes longer to heal. Anyone else go this long or have this happen?

Good day

Surgical pain, especially with difficult extractions, in which bone had to be removed, can sometimes last up until 2 weeks. Remember every person's healing process is also unique.
If you went for a check up with the dentist, and he indicated that everything seems well, then everything should return to normal. Just be patient. You can take some painkillers, especially anti-inflammatory meds.
If the pain is not getting better each day, and you still have severe pain after 2 weeks, go back to your dentist, so that further investigations can be done.

Healing differs from person to person, and it also depends on the severity of the extraction, post op wound care etc.
