Lily Allen - Allen's Misery After Wisdom Teeth Operation
British singer Lily Allen has been in agony after an operation to remove all four of her wisdom teeth left her with a 16-hour nosebleed.
The Smile hitmaker has long experienced problems with her gums and contracted an infection in her mouth last summer (10).
She went under the knife on Thursday (20Jan11) to rid her of the troublesome molars, but her recovery has been far from smooth.
Opening up about her pain in series of posts on Twitter.com, Allen reveals she wasn't able to sleep on Thursday night as she suffered a non-stop nosebleed, and her medication failed to ease her agony.
In a series of posts, she writes, "I have had a nosebleed for 16 hours, I slept upright last night. Chapped lips, mouthful of blood. Not a great start to the weekend... Oh, and hamster cheeks doesn't even cover it. I did get 10 mgs of morphine though, which was nice."
And when one fan on the site asked her why she was experiencing such a nasty nosebleed, the star replied, "I think cause of the oxygen tubes they stuck up my nose during the operation."
