It's almost been 3 weeks and I am so glad that I'm halfway there! I had my 2 wk follow up and it went fine. The swelling on my right side is still noticeable and I'm hoping it evens out soon. 3 more weeks and I'll be able to move my jaw! I just want to talk---it's been really difficult trying to com...

Yes, I too am very surprised at the lack of bruising. I suspect I may see some in the upcoming days. I have my first follow up apointment today at 2, good thing too because I am completely out of liquid Motrin and I need it.

I am wired shut with a splint in.....and...I had a lingual frenectomy. I have a lot of stuff going on--so many wires going in and out of my teeth and j...

Granted, they do...
