A few weeks ago I had my lower left wisdom tooth removed. However, the pain won't go away. The pain is like I still have my tooth there. The pain is a stinging aching pain. I did see the surgeon about my pain when I had my lower right removed about two weeks ago and he said it's fine and it takes 3 months to heal.

I also had my lower right removed about two weeks ago as mentioned above which also has the same pain.

Does anyone know why I'm hurting so much?

Good day

If it was a difficult surgical extraction, it does sometimes take a while to heal. The pain should be getting gradually better however and not stay the same or become worse. I would suggest going for a follow-up with your oral surgeon, or at least your dentist, in order to evaluate if the pain is not maybe related to some adjacent structures.
