Lady Gaga Gets Her Wisdom Teeth Pulled: Shares Post-Surgery Photo

Pin It
Lady Gaga had her wisdom teeth pulled this week and she posted a picture of her full-on chipmunk cheeks to prove it. Anyone who has gone through the dreaded wisdom teeth removal knows that the recovery is slightly less than amazing.

It's kind of like when you get your tonsils out and everyone is like "you can eat ALL the ice cream you want" and you're super pumped about it and then you get wheeled out of the room and you want to vomit on and/or smack anyone who even mentions any food of any kind. It's unfair, really, how we all totally buy into that and the reality of it is so drastically different.

As for Gaga, she hasn't mentioned anything about eating any ice cream, but it sounds like she has managed to consume of the painkillers she was given. In fact, she Tweeted out her very own post-widsom teeth removal version of 'Poker Face.' We're assuming that one was written AFTER the meds had kicked in. Just a guess...

Hopefully Gaga is taking a more responsible approach to pain management when it comes to her wisdom teeth (or lack thereof). Following her hip surgery last year, Mother Monster confessed that she had turned to excessive use of marijuana to numb the pain. "I was smoking 15 joints a day," she told Attitude magazine (via GagaDaily) in November. "It was a habit that eventually occurred when the pain got so bad with the hip."

"I was just numbing, numbing, numbing myself then sleeping it off, then getting on stage, killing it in pain, then getting off and smoking, smoking, smoking, not knowing what the pain was. F**k if I know what hurts the most, you know? I would break the habit and it would sneak back in and I would break it and sneak back in."

When she did that interview, she had definitely broken the habit, saying that was the most sober she'd been in the last five years. Let's hope she turns to the trusty bag of frozen peas if she needs a little boost in the pain management in department. It's basically the one thing frozen peas are good for and we've all bought a bag or two when we went on a health kick, so might as well put them to good use.
