Oh well, at least the posts are posting. The appointment with the surgeon, went soo well!!! I was soooo glad when he took the 10 or 12 rubber bands off and I got to brush my teeth. Hooray!!! and he only put 2 back on!!! He was super excited about my results too, it was really cool. He just kept saying it looked soo good, this makes me super happy because I love it too. I just kept saying thank you to him, he seemed a little like confused that I was saying it so much, but guys, I LOVE THIS. It is absolutely worth the tremendous amounts of pain, liquid/mush foods, odd numbness, lip peeling/chapping, and that disgusting antibiotic. I cannot express enough happiness I have, when I see an off-guard profile shot. Maybe when I get more control of my face muscles I will be able to hah! Oh yes, we saw the xrays, WHOA. I know why I hurt so much.
I have a total of ...
- 32 SCREWS.
- 26 of those screws are on my top jaw
- 6 of them are on my lower jaw (and they are HUGE)
- 6 Plates (top jaw only)
Ouch, but well worth it.
From late last night, THIS PROFILE IS WHAT I'M SO EXCITED ABOUT
Dr. S and I! Hooray!!!
In the office chair, with Trusty.
See all the fun stuff on top??
Look on the sides, see how big-ish the screws on the side are??
Life's a party, wear the hats
