Re: August/September surgery buddies

Yes I had upper and lower done. The weird thing is they weren't really clogged for the first 2 two weeks after surgery and then all of sudden they totally clogged up. I wish I could open my mouth wide enough to do a nice big yawn, yesterday when I yawned they opened up for a couple minuted then clog...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

I have a question for everyone. Is anyone else having trouble with plugged ears? Mine were a little plugged right after surgery but now at 3 weeks post op they are super plugged!! Everything sounds very muffled and it's driving me crazy! If I look straight up they get a little better but then when I...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

I have trouble saying certain letters unless I really concentrate and even then it doesn't sound right. I think it's because my muscles still don't move right. My son thinks it's hilarious and we get a good laugh from it because I sound like a toddler sometimes. Like when I say water it comes out wa...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

I think my feeling is coming back to the roof of my mouth and my lip. I get a weird tingling feeling in my lip where it's numb that comes and goes and I've been getting a weird tickling sensation on the roof of my mouth every once in awhile. Today I think I'm going to try a white castle hamburger. T...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

I wish I knew what I did. I hate being sick so I really pushed myself to get back to normal as fast as possible. I got myself drinking out of a cup really quickly and mastered eating with my kids spoon really fast too. I also kept ice on my face pretty much non stop thanks to my jaw bra for the firs...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

I had my 2 week check up today and it went great!!!! All my band...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

So I made myself some super over cooked and soggy mac and cheese and it was fantastic!!! It was soft enough that I could smush it with my spoon and then swallow it whole!!! This is the first time I have felt semi full since I had the surgery. It's amazing what a full stomach can do for your mood. :j...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

I went and saw my primary doctor and switched my meds and I'm feeling a lot better now. My pain is managed without that foggy feeling. Now I'm just hungry!!! I am someone who eats meat at least once a day so I'm really craving some type of meat like chicken or steak. I'm getting tired of potatoes an...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

As of today it's a week since I had both jaws done and I still feel horrible. I have absolutely no energy and my lips are still so swollen that I can't close them. I've been trying to eat a little here and there but I know I haven't been doing a very good job at it because I've lost 10 pounds in a w...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

Okay I have a question for everyone, when do you start to feel better? I've been so down in the dumps today and I know crying will make it worse but I just feel so icky! I'm tired and swollen and hungry. After the 2 week mark does it usually get better or the 3 week mark? I just want a round about t...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

I had surgery Tuesday morning and din't poop until late Thursday night. Of course they were worried about it when I was at the hospital and made me take a stool softener which I definitely didn't need because then once I started I didn't stop for awhile!! I haven't gone at all yesterday or today but...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

I survived but I feel horrible. My surgeon said everything went beautifully and according to him my swelling isn't horrible. My lips are the most swollen and they hurt. Here I was looking forward to being totally numb but surprise surprise I have a lot of feeling left all over my face which sucks be...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

I have to check in tomorrow morning at 6:30 for surgery. I can't believe the day is actually here!! I didn't sleep at all last night and so far it's looking like I will get any sleep tonight either. I have no idea what to bring with to the hospital. I have some pajamas to wear home, a small mirror t...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

Snapdresser- I don't really feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to the chin. I guess I figure he is the expert so I will trust his opinion on wether I truly need it or not. He said it will only add 45 minutes on to my surgery if he decides to do it. He is doing a 3D computer simulation ...
