after the surgery, your dentist would have sutured up the operation site. minimal bleeding should occur on its own.
Doing strenous excercise might cause the sutures to come loose thereby leading to more bleeding. Also, the excercise would increase blood pressure such that more blood actually reaches the op site. Golf, luckily is not a really strenous sport. Unless you bet heavy though..the adrenaline rush would increase the blood pressure also.. Very Happy
Dont think the bleeding would stop you from your love for golf.
But do go to your game with the packets of gauzes that the clinic would have given you.
IF theres bleeding, fold and bite onto 1-2 pieces gauze but make sure they are seating over the wound. The pressure would stop the bleeding.

Hope this helps! Dun waste the MC right?

Surgery in the mouth can be quite upsetting. Even if all goes well, you won't feel quite yourself. You may encounter swelling and discomfort. In any case, the pain (however minor) will be a distraction.

Why subject yourself to a round of golf when you're not focused? There'll be many opportunities to play. If I were you, I'd rest and recover asap first.

I doubt there'll be blood oozing from your mouth but if it happens, that would really wreck your game. My bigger concern is the pain and that can be quite distracting. I've got enough things to blame for my poor performance (lousy swing, lousy shoes, lousy weather, lousy buggy etc.). I don't need another excuse.

But, as with all things, to each his own. If you do go out, I wish you nothing but an awesome and enjoyable round. You are right - the weather has been pretty nice of late Smile

Probably if your extraction is straightforward, just gulp a couple of painkiller, and bite a couple of gauzes and you'll be fine...

Remember, pain is temporary, glory is forever Very Happy

But with a bad round of golf... the pain feels like it's forever too!

I always feel suicidal after my round of golf... then I think of the beer and it all feels better Smile

If he has the drive to play golf even he has to go through the pain, I believe his golf game won't be that bad.

If it's bad, blame the pain Very Happy
