3 years, 5 months, and 25 days since Surgery

Haven't posted in awhile as progress is slow at this point. Don't get me wrong, it is still getting better but it just takes a lot longer to improve. I have a small area in my lower lip that is still tingly but has gotten much better since my last post. Things are almost back to normal with full feeling everywhere, and feeling has come back a lot in my upper and lower teeth as well. Hard to believe I'm still making progress at almost 3.5 years post op, but its true! I'm sure at some point in the very near future I will have full feeling totally back. Maybe by my 4 year mark I will be completely healed! Woo hoo!

I was thinking today though how great it is to sleep now. I'm grateful everyday that I sleep so soundly and deeply, and dream so vividly. That is a blessing! Until next time. Sweet Dreams to you all!

    I'm glad to hear about your progress. You should always continue to look on the future if you feel some discomforts with your surgery. I have been to a cosmetic dentist (Chicago-based) and he manages to brief me about my surgery. He sees it best for me to understand the stages.

    I have known a lot who had been through cosmetic dentistry (Chicago-based), and most of them have positive results. So far, I see being so positive as the key! Goodluck to you Brandy.

    Hi Brandy,

    How are you doing? I'm glad to hear that you are doing well after your surgery. My name is Vineeth and I'm a surgical technology student. I'm doing an assignment where I have to basically conduct an online interview with you about your surgical endeavor. I do not need any personal information from you but only some basic information about your surgery. So if you would like to take part in this interview process, please email me back at as soon as possible.

    Thank you
