After Wisdom Teeth Removal ?

I got my wisdom teeth removed a week ago. My left side has been significantly slower in healing than my right, holes seem fine and closed. My left is still swollen and has what the dentist said a hematoma smaller now but still there, and my teeth on that side seem to be numb. I am still having to take medicine to help the pain (not sore or stiff) 

Anyone else had this problem before? How did it turn out and how long did it take?

    You should start feeling better within the next week, some extractions take longer to heal, the nerves are bruised in your jaw. Hopefully you are taking ibroprufen, this reduces the swelling.
