Upper jaw numbness

Hi all, I'm a little over 3 months post op double jaw surgery. Sensations are returning well minus my maxilla. All I can feel is a slight tickle on my palate when I run my tongue over it- my teeth and upper gums have nothing. I know it's still pretty early, but did anyone have numbness like this?

Re: August/September surgery buddies

Maybe check w/ your surgeon next appt. Hopefully it goes away by then. I'm eating soft food pretty well now. My mouth, with the exception of my tongue and front lower gums is still pretty numb - making it hard to chew. I also think im producing a lot more saliva cause I cant sense any in my mouth. K...

Re: August/September surgery buddies

Apparently from the maxilla surgery, it disrupts where your palate muscles attach and you get Eustachian tube symptoms (pain with swallowing, feeling underwater). It should subside my dr said.

Re: August/September surgery buddies

Does anyone have pain in their ear or ears when they swallow? My right tmj is hurting when I open and when I swallow I get some pain there. Is it temporary??

Re: August/September surgery buddies

6 days post op double jaw surgery. I think the worst part is the congestion in my sinuses and pressure in my ears (hearing feels like I'm underwater). I flushed out my nostrils with saline spray which helped a bit.

Face is still tickly and tingling in some spots and still swollen.
