Is this normal healing 3 days post molar extraction or dry socket?

    I had a molar extracted Wednesday afternoon and this is what it looks like now. It hurts a lot still. Hydrocodone takes the pain away but I can tell when the next dose is due. I’d say the pain is at its worst today thus far..about a 7 out of 10 (without pain meds). Does this look normal or like a dry socket?

    Did this end up being dry socket, or was it part of the normal healing process?
