after 23 months, here's a pic

#1 Post by Esoteric »

I haven't posted on here for a while, but just wanted to show a pic and tell everyone about to go through surgery that it's worth it. I would do it all again even though I have residual numbness on the left side of my chin and lip in a small spot. Just have to get a lower incisor capped, then the teeth bleached and I'll finally be done with the big stuff.

Looks great. I agree reidual numbness is a trade off. I am 1 ear postop and still going through pyhsical therapy to keep things moving. Great wishes for you.

I haven't had to go through any PT, I guess the numbness doesn't really bother me that much. It's not all numb, just slightly like in the in between of being numb and not =).

Hope your PT goes well though.

Thanks. FWIW, I had SARPE and then IVRO to finish things off. I was completely wired shut for 6.5 weeks. To date, I have not had one complication.
