Hopefully you will get over the Covid soon, without any lingering side effects.
I suggest using an ice pack after extraction- a LOT.
Typically, the instructions you'd get from an oral surgeon will say "use an ice pack over affected area for 20 minutes every 1-2 hours" or similar.
I have had a few oral surgeries/procedures. I used an ice pack 20-30 min. on, 20-30 min. off, and kept doing that until night time.
Next morning I would have minimal swelling and pain.
