I was nervous about going through with surgery! I was told by my dr and his interns that I wouldnt need my pain meds, maybe just for the first day and that i should be back to normal within few days... needless to say my experience wasnt that easy!
The day of the surgery I was uncomfortable and could not sleep. I am a nose breather so it was extremely difficult to breathe out of my mouth. It also dried my mouth and would wake up every 20 min. I had to take vicodin every 4 hours for the first week because of the discomfort. Also lost 12lbs that week, I recommend eating soft foods!
Its been 5 weeks post op and I am happy I did it! I look younger and couldn't be more pleased with the outcome!
