Hey Casey, you look dashing! Did you have operation on both jaws? How long was the surgery? Is your mouth "wired" shut? The first week to 10 days post op were the hardest for me. But after that it's all easy street! Hang in there! You'll be GLAD you took this brave step.

Hey, baby, you ok? I'm answering your distress call. Have you tried some ibuprofen for the pain? Is it severe pain? You have a fever? Of course you're miserable, dear. Just remember--it's also kinda hiLARious, too! Or, it will be. Plus, you'll be, as we say stateside, "Hecka fine." Or, if you're feeling randy, "HELLA fine." After all the swelling and bloody crusts are gone. Well, if you're feeling really badly, don't hesitate to call your doc. Are you wired shut? Can you gently squirt some yummy blended foods into the back of your mouth, kinda behind your back molars and swallow that? If you can do that, it all gets much better. You're a young man--you're HUNGRY, you poor thing. Aw. Chin up, ok? Nicely remodeled chin up.

How about some chocolate milkshakes? I [heart] chocolate milkshakes. Anything you love to eat can be blended with either soup stock OR milk OR juice. Cream makes everything taste great, just ask Julia Child. Well, she can't be asked anymore, but you get the idea. Aw. Poor thing. If my arms could stretch across the continent, across the Atlantic, I'd give you a big hug and pat on the back. You big stud. Just wait until you tell all your mates what the doctor did to your face, AND you survived. How many of your mates can say they did THAT? Please describe in careful detail, too, just what the doctor did to yourself, and watch your buds cradle their heads and wince. You big stud-muffin.

Hey kristen and mrs. shanton thanks so much for ur comments. Its pretty comforting just having someone whos been there telling you its gonna get better. I feel like such a big girl moaning about it but the pain is so constant you do start to wonder if its ever gonna go away! Day 6 now and its as bad as its been prob due to the drugs wearing off but im gonna be positive and hope its all better from here on in like u said kristen.
I did have surgery on both jaws and my wisdom teeth removed too but on the plus side my jaw isnt wired shut, its just supported with bands connecting the braces so i can move it slightly.
