    it's not recommending to weight train while on pain killers
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    everyone is different with surgery, personally I had all 4 pulled out and ended up with "dry socket" in the bottom two, I think I ended up taking about 2 weeks off from training.

    You will definately want to wait at least 2 or 3 days. You might pop some stitches if you try to lift too soon.

    Shoot, I got all 4 pulled using local anesthia and drove myself home. I didn't need any of the Tylenol 3 that I was prescribed either. It did take several hours/day to get to solid food though. My cheeks were all puffy. Lol, I already have "chipmunk" cheeks so I looked really weird.

    I had two done by an oral surgeon, which had to be cut out with a bone saw. I recovered quickly because of the phenomenal stitching job he did. This was a while back, but I recall being out of it for a few days anyway.

    The other two were done by a dentist - yanked out teh old fashioned way. Damned if that didn't take longer to recover from. Out for a solid week. First time I sat up in bed I almost tossed my cookies.
    It takes a big man to cry. It takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.
