Re: September 2011 Buddies!!!!

I read that eating lots of pinapple starting a couple of weeks prior to the surgery

helps a lot with the swelling. That's one thing I'd try now. If you don't feel like eating

much, there is juice.

Hey, maybe you're one of those people who recover well :wink:

I woke up last night panicing about my teeth - I never had this worry with the original ortho.

Maybe the ortho. will have five minutes on Tuesday to listen to what you're

suddenly experiencing. Good luck on Tuesday.

Re: I chickened out of my first meeting today

Welcome, What happens if I get halfway through wearing braces and start to panic and decide I don't want the surgery? Could I ever just get the braces without the surgery? Get a diagnosis from the surgeon, and then you'll be able to learn more about the specific procedure(s), recovery, etc... releva...
