Re: August/September surgery buddies

Re: August/September surgery buddies

Jmp75 I have pressure in my ears - sometimes feels like I'm under water or on a plane, but sometimes it goes really clear & I can hear everything properly. I'm hoping this subsides over time as it's an unpleasant sensation

Re: ADVICE PLEASE - Gunshot Wound to Mandible, Arch Bars destroying mouth

When I put wax on u braces I just tried to suck air past the wires to dry them out a bit, then mould the wax around the sharp area. The wax will stick better to a dry area, and also one that is not too smooth.

Hope you get some relief from pain soon

Re: August/September surgery buddies

Hi all
So today I have eaten a nutrition shake, cottage cheese & pineapple Blended up, and some chicken soup.

Am starting to feel some buzzing, fizzing & twitching in my lips & chin so imagine that's the nerves waking up.

Has anyone been taking bromelain for swelling ? Has it helped you?

Thanks x
