Bit of an update
The pain has been more than I expected as well. I have a pretty high tolerance for pain, but its been pretty bad. I have had headaches and my teeth hurt as everything is just so tight and feels like it is putting tension all around my face and head. Who knows, maybe this is related to stress, but I really hope it resolves soon.
I think I will like my profile once things settle down, but this has been way more significant than I expected. I might have had an unrealistic expectation about how easy this was going to be but my experience thus far is that it's not. Of course, then I get "spinning" on all of the other possible complications that could occur and I get more stressed. One day at a time I guess. On a positive note, Dr. Cruise and his staff have been really good so far.
Just posted some pics
I also have pain in one spot on my left jaw that actually radiates into a couple of teeth as well. I just emailed the PS to seek if tips is anything to be concerned.
swelling in my jowls has gone down some, but the left side of my chin is still really swollen and sticking out. Underneath my chin is also swollen and my scar is raised. At this point, my face appears longer and narrower than before. I am hoping this, is mostly due to swelling that will resolve. I will try to post pics over the weekend.
No numbness in my lips or really even in my chin. Still really tight feeling tough and my smile is crooked-a bit like a sideways "s". Can only see my top teeth.
Not looking forward to 2-6 months for all this to resolve, and I am a bit concerned about the pain that goes into my gum/mouth.
I really liked Dr.Cruise and his entire staff. They took the time to answer multiple sets of questions from me, and really seemed to care. They also appear to have a well thought through process.
