Wisdom teeth pain

It's been a while since I last posted anything. Yeah... I miss blogging but I was in terrible pain right up until now. My right lower wisdom tooth is impacted and I'm in a lot of pain this week. I went to the policlinic because the last time I went to a private dentist, she told me that it cost RM450 per wisdom tooth to be extracted. I went to policlinic last week and the dentist told me that I have to be refer to Miri General Hospital to see the specialist. And they told me that the cost of wisdom tooth extraction is RM50 but my husband is a government servant, so it can be done free with a guarantee letter. The bad news is, it can only be done next month on the 21st! I have to bear with this pain for almost a month! It's even worse than labor pain because for me, when I'm in labor pain, it felt like a euphoric sensation compared to this killing pain of impacted wisdom tooth. Another bad news is, because of I'm breastfeeding my baby, they can't prescribe me with any strong drugs! Arghh.. so much in pain. But, I'm holding this to my heart:

"Those who patiently preserve will truly receive a reward without measure" (Qur'an 39:10). "And bear in patience whatever (ill) maybe fall you: this, behold, is something to set one's heart upon" (Qur'an 31:17). Prophet Mohammad taught "When the believer is afflicted with pain, even that of a prick of a thorn or more, God forgives his sins, and his wrongdoings are discarded as a tree sheds off its leaves."

I've googled so much information about wisdom tooth extraction and I hope with all of these info, I can manage it well. Dear Allah, please let me be strong because I have 5 children to take care of. Amin.
