22 Months and Counting its now a year and 10 months since my big jaw surgery. Feeling is still returning, and I have actually gotten quite a bit back this month in my lower lip. It is starting to feel almost sorta normal again. I got a lot of feeling back in my lower teeth this month too, but it is not totally back just yet. I went through a couple of weeks where my lip and teeth were like really tingly and it was kindof annoying, but it seems to have subsided now so that is a plus. It seems to follow that course everytime. I get tingly and sometimes feel more numb, then after a week or so it subsides and I have more feeling back in that area. At any rate I"m happy to still be getting feeling back and I"m pretty positive that eventually it will all return.

Other then that things with my mouth are pretty uneventful. I have now officially not had a sinus infection in over a year so that is a huge celebration! For the most part I don't really notice the stuff with my jaw now though, I'm used to it and it all feels pretty normal to me now. I will continue to post though until things stop changing or return to 100%.

Check in next month!

21 Months Post Op

So...actually I have been a little lax with my updates and its actually 21 and a half months. Things are going well still and feeling continues to return bit by bit. My lower lip is still mildy numb but is getting better and better with each passing month, as is my lower left quadrant. I can now chew gum on my left side and actually feel what I'm chewing which is a plus. I'm convinced its all going to come back within the 2 year mark.

Since having the surgery things are great. I'm sleeping, and honestly feel terrific. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat, and I don't regret any part of this whole decision.

Well, I will keep posting until its really over! So until next month peace out! :)
