Upper and Lower Jaw Surgery and Chin Reduction - Edinburgh, GB

I had my upper and lower jaw moved with a chin...

I had my upper and lower jaw moved with a chin reduction 6 months ago now, and I must say the worst thing I could have done, I still don't know what I will look like as my face is swollen more than it is normal, today I feel as if my face has had a stroke I can't smile and the pain is unbearable, I waited such a long time for this procedure and now I regret it, been informed it could take up to 5 years before I can breathe through my nose and up to two years before everything is the way it should be, such a long and horrible procedure

I think that's along time to still experience pain. I had mine done on December 2012 and now everything feels good. I used to have tightness feeling in my right jaw every time I opened it wide, but I kept working on it using sticks ( I slowly adding 1 pc every time my jaw opened wider). Now it's better and I can open it now without the pain in my right jaw.

Did you get upper and lower jaw done, I got mine December 5th, and I still suffer soo much for it, to the stage I can't get out bed, just wish it would get better
I only had a lower jaw done. I have under bite and crossed bite. After the surgery I hardly had any pain. I stopped taking pain med in 3 days. The only reason I took the pain meds was to go to sleep. It relaxes me and made me feel comfortable. I hope you feel better.
