Alright, here goes. I had my wisdom teeth extracted about 4 weeks ago. They healed fine and I thought that was it. Recently I've developed swelling and some pain in the extraction site, probably dry socket. I AM NOT ASKING FOR MEDICAL ADVICE; I'm seeing my oral surgeon tomorrow morning. Assuming everything goes alright tomorrow with my surgeon, I have a job interview
later in the morning tomorrow. Would it be completely idiotic for me to go on a job interview with half of a swollen face, explaining the situation if necessary or should I just re-schedule? I can talk just fine but I'm worried about looking funny. I know it's probably silly and as long as I dress up and sell myself I can still probably stand a chance but I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with a situation like this or advice.

If your oral surgeon OK's it, I would go.
I had my wisdom teeth pulled when I was in my late 20's. I took a few days off work and returned, thinking that I didn't look too bad. One of my co-workers said she was relieved to hear that I'd had teeth pulled, as she was worried that I'd gotten beaten up. I didn't think I looked that bad!
In this tight job market, it may be detrimental to push back an interview. I'd just be certain to explain things.
