Ugh. I Have a Dry Socket

I knew it would happen because the tooth extraction was absolutely hellish. I needed 6 injections and I could still feel pain as the oral surgeon used pliers. a drill, some kind of scraper and something like a bone elevator to dig out the root. I can't drive to the oral surgeon because it's a 3 hour round trip and I'm taking Percocet (along with Motrin) for pain and Dramamine so the Percocet won't make me puke. I'm using a Red Cross toothache kit. I rinse my mouth with saline, squirt the tooth hole with chlorhexidrine in a syringe, then put the cotton ball dipped in clove oil in the hole. I'm already on antibiotics. That should be ok, right? I have an appointment on Monday and shoud feel better by then.
