    I extracted a lower molar 3 days ago and so far recovery has been going great. However, this morning I noticed something like a seed surrounded with coagulated blood come out of my extraction site. I am terrified that I have lost my blood clot and will develop dry socket. Currently I am in no pain, but it happened about half an hour ago so I guess it wouldn't start yet. How long after tha blood clot comes out do you start to feel pain (I'm not talking after extraction, I'm talking after the blood clot comes out). Anyway, here is an image, I hope you can see the extraction site well.
