Getting first jaw surgery in a few days

Recommended Posts

Sorry to those whose PMs I have not yet responded to. I haven't been very active, and my finals have just ended today (and I just got a cold.)

I'm scheduled for my first jaw surgery on Monday. Really nervous about my facial profile. I'm not getting extractions done; just scared of the outcome all the same. 

Thought I'd come here for support. :) I was also wondering if anyone else had jaw surgery.

I'm not in the hospital - they released me within a few hours of the surgery and I have been recovering at home.

Im swollen and parts of my chin and lower lip are numb and have been mostly resting. I'm on a soft diet of mostly mashed potatoes and pudding and chicken broth. 

I'm doing decent, thanks for asking. The only thing I'm worried about is I haven't had a bowel movement since the surgery and I'm bloated and uncomfortable. Other than that, I'm all good :)

@Islandsandmirrors that's normal after any surgery and if it doesn't resolve itself in a couple days call your doctor. Getting up and walking around as much as you reasonably can helps, and making sure your diet includes enough fiber, obviously.

I'm glad you're doing OK and hope your recovery is complete quickly.
