To mark the 1 year anniversary of having jaw surgery. I'm still numb. And I still have problems hitting my teeth and biting my lip but not too often. The pain is still there and right now I've decided to just live with it. I am very happy with my profile.
I am supposed to visit my ortho in about 2 months just to check everything. I haven't decided if I'm going back after some comments my ortho's partner made last time I was there. He basically told me that most people would just live with the jaw pain. Well, duh! I've been doing that my whole life. It wasn't every day (not like it is now) but it was there. I really just wanted to hit him in the jaw and tell him to deal with it!
But jail is not really appealing to me so I decided to just cry to my husband and not schedule another appt. I probably will go back eventually because I don't want to hurt any progress we made with the surgery. I will just have to make sure I see my ortho and not the other guy.
