    Today is Thursday. I had a difficult molar extracted last Friday so it's nearly a week. The dentist prescribed a narcotic pain killer but I didn't use it as ibuprofen seemed to be working. About three days later however discomfort resumed. It's like a low level pain. Dental assistant said that this can happen. Is this normal and just how long is this likely to continue? I see oral surgeon for follow up next Tuesday....I should add to make matters worse two days ago I burnt the roof of my mouth and it's still painful!
