Hi...I had 4 teeth extracted yesterday. One of them, #2, had roots very close to my sinuses, which I'd known ahead of time. Afterward, I was told by the Dr that he'd packed (I could be using the wrong word) it with something extra/different to defend against the chance of infection (or something to that effect, I'm sorry if I'm not remembering it correctly) as well as a prescription for clindamycin. Fast forward to about a half hour ago. I felt and tasted a salty fluid-like....fluid? dripping from the extraction site. I searched and found this site, and what I read led me to think I may have a perforated sinus. I saw some of the symptoms here, but wanted to describe what else I felt before jumping to conclusions, because I didn't read anything about the other things I'm experiencing. The other 3 were all on the left side of my mouth. There's no pain whatsoever on that side. The extraction site of #2 is painless as well. However, there's a strong amount of pressure in my sinuses on that side, which I'd originally chalked up to swelling due on account of how the Motrin works really well for it, and the propoxyphene doesn't. Even that isn't so much painful as annoying. Also, and I'm not really sure how to describe this accurately, but I'll try. When I swallow, and when I tried to smoke, it felt/feels sort of like...like it's pulling or suctioning mucous towards (but important to note NOT OUT, just towards and needless to say I thought I should wait a little longer before trying to smoke again) the extraction. Sort of like (I'm sory for the graphic visual I'm about to cause) like feeling you get when one side of nose is stuffed and you roll over and it drains to the other side. I hope this made enough sense. Oh, and while I have the salty taste, I do NOT have liquids coming back out my nose when I drink. Hope that's enough info to get an opinion. Also, whether it is or isn't a perforated sinus, do I need to be seen ASAP? Can I wait til Mon to call my Dr? Can I just wait til my follow-up appt Fri? Thanks in advance! Sorry for the length, and again, sorry for the bit of grossness I felt it necessary to include.
