Re: 36ish hours out front Lefort 1

I had BSSO and a rhinoplasty on April 17th. I would say in the last week is when my new bite is finally starting to feel normalish. Because they worked on both my nose and my jaw my cheeks were super swollen and I kept biting them. That has lessened in the last 2-3 days. I reccomend facial massage t...

Re: MSDO surgery

I haven't had that particular surgery but I had a surgery for upper pallets expansion in 2016 and a BSSO to bring my lower jaw forward just about a month ago. Both times the diet was liquid to soft no chew foods for 6 weeks. Invest in a decent blender. It's more strict of you will be wired shut. The...

Re: April 18 Surgery Buddies...

I worry less about eating enough at work and more about how I will look eating at work. My lower lip and chin are completely numb still. And while I have gotten much better I will think I've wiped everything off then look in a mirror an hour later and realize I'm a mess. Getting used to the new face...

Re: April 18 Surgery Buddies...

The pain is gone now. It was just the first two weeks. My biggest struggle now is realizing I go back to work on Wed. and I won't be able to sleep until 830 every morning. :lol: 5 am is going to be rough.

Re: April 18 Surgery Buddies...

I just had the most ridiculous wow I'm not that smart moment. I was reading through another thread on here and someone mentioned how they had throat bruising from their breathing tube. For almost two weeks post surgery I was afraid I was getting sick because my throat was killing me. I had two separ...

Re: Soft foods post-surgery

I made a sweet potato curry in my instant pot and it was magical. I ate it with over cooked soft rice but I think it would also be good with mashed potato. Other than blending soups I think it was the first meal I had that was soft, no chew, and still felt super fulfilling.

Re: April 18 Surgery Buddies...

Oh wow. Yeah the biting will get you every time. Being as this is my second surgery, (I had SARPE to fix my upper palette in 2016) I feel like I'm stretching the definition of soft foods a lot more than I did last time. And my surgeon was okay with it as long as I confirm that I am not biting at all.

Re: April 18 Surgery Buddies...

When I went for my 3 week checkup with my surgeon today we were talking about how the swelling/ puffiness will kind of shift day to day. I have noticed that a lot. Some days my right side will be bad, others my left. But it's all normal I guess. The clicking though I haven't experienced at all though.

Re: April 18 Surgery Buddies...

[quote=PierreDeFermat post_id=501957 time=1525668502 user_id=31191] Lucky you, surgery of the lower jaw is much easier in terms of congestion/swelling than the upper. Why did you need oral surgery? You should talk to your doctor about the fact that you're occasionally biting your cheeks when you che...

Re: April 18 Surgery Buddies...

I had BSSO and Rhinoplasty on April 17th. The breathing while the nose splints were in was awful. Right after they were removed the breathing was so much better but the drainage was still a problem. I slept basically sitting up for two weeks. I just started sleeping normally a couple days ago. My he...
