Day 7:Post Op
We have progress! I just managed to eat spaghetti and meatballs. Out of a cup. Ok so it was pretty much meatball soup but still. It was nice to have a proper dinner,even if it was blended down.
No progress on the swelling or bruising but I wasn’t in much pain for most of the day. Not with my jaw anyway,my stomach however was a different story. Im in pain now,but it’s night time. Like anything,pain is always worse in the morning and evenings.
I did however get the before and after x rays emailed to me which I thought I would post so you can get a general idea of how my mouth now looks as I’m not ready to post photos yet.
I’m really pleased and impressed with how it all turned out. To think this time last week(well,another 8 hours time,I was up panicking about what would happen) and a week later it’s done is great.
Mum went back to work today so I lounges in front of the tv tucked up on the sofa watching reruns of Friends and reading Glamour and Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher.
I’ve also looked at different hairstyles so I can have my hair cut once it’s all gone down. I’m a bit in love with the hairstyles of Emma Stone and Natalie Portman. The bob with the fringe but we’ll see.
Slowly but surely getting there. For today at least.
