Day 7

Almost a week since my surgery - woo-hoo! I had my 2nd post-op appointment this morning. They took x-rays, took off my old rubbers (I had 4) and put on 2 new ones - one on each side. They said I look good for just a few days out of surgery and were impressed at how fast I was recovering. I asked them about sleeping because I am having such a hard time getting to sleep upright, and my OS said that at this point I can sleep any way I like even on my face. I don't think I will go as far as sleeping on my face even though he said it was okay but I will definetly sleep laying down tonight! I have to come back again on Friday.

Right now, I am just bored because I have to be at home and that has gotten a bit old by now... I don't really want to go out in public yet. My lips are still irritated. They healed a little bit and then I went to the park and when I came back they were all red with little bumps/irritation in the corners again. It looks disgusting and hurts when I brush. Hopefully this goes away soon...

I am starting to crave real food. I was never a big eater but lately when I smell different foods, I just want to stuff them in my mouth. Five more weeks of this liquid diet thing... ahhh...


  1. So glad to hear your OS appointment went well and that you can sleep in any position you want. My back is hurting me when I sleep upright, so I know what you mean. Congratulations on 1 week down. Hopefully the next ones will go super fast for you. Blessings, June

  2. I've been out of town and haven't caught up on my jaw blogs, but I'm so glad to see that you're doing well! Your profile is much improved.
