Day 11

so i got to wake up at 6:30 this morning to drive to the post op appt with my surgeon. fun stuff... so i barely got any sleep last night :( suffering today from the little sleep. my appt with my surgeon went well. i got an x-ray done! my surgeon said that everything looks great and even said i did a great job of keeping my mouth clean. i am to start getting off of my pain medication.. which won't be easy, but ill do it! here is the x-ray.

lots of metal in my mouth. haha....
then my surgeon decided i needed to wear bands again :( boo. these things will be the end of me. im not wearing them today as much as i should have... the pain got to be too bad. sigh. but here's the configuration of that.. sigh. just when i thought it was getting better! ill try again with the bands tomorrow :(

im still having stomach aches. this is my biggest complaint at this point. i just feel so terrible. curled up in a ball on the couch all day. sigh. I'm taking lots of medicine and even have had to drink magnesium citrate. ew. hopefully things will get better tomorrow :( i need to get past my stomach issues! i want to feel better.

ill keep posting. sigh. just dont know what to say :(


  1. I hate the bands as well. I just started getting a throbbing from an anchor placed on my bottom jaw. I'm told I need the bands for only a few more weeks - yay! Hang in there! :)

    1. ouch! but yay for you getting rid of them soon, i feel like they will never go away! and a big thank you :) tonight i finally feel like i have improved so much. such a difference in how i feel from earlier, so ill be good i think! thanks so much for listening :)
