It has been a few days and I am off the Vicodin and trying to proceed with just ibuprofen. The intense pain is gone and the area is no longer temperature sensitive. But there is a dull ache that gets worse as the day goes on and the tooth is sensitive to sharp impacts. I have to chew anything that is not soft on the other side. Hopefully it will still improve.
