I can't believe it's only day 2. Sigh. Time flies when you're lying in bed drinking various liquids through a syringe all day. Except not really.
Pain: I'd say the average has been at about a 2.5/10 all day. Mostly, my jaw joints ache, like they need to be stretched out or something, but there'll be none of that for 5 more days. Oogh.
Numbness: same as yesterday.
Discomfort: Still sick of the swelling, but I'm learning to deal.
Events for today: I've moved on from ice packs. Now I'm on heat! And only one more day of wearing the jaw bra *YAYAY*
I've started to feel the tingles and the phantom itches today, which makes this tumblr post relevant.
I also got seasons 3-8 of Full House! (I already had seasons 1 and 2). So I'm pretty much set for the rest of recovery! And the rest of my life......... !
I had my first laughing fit today too. I was making weird faces at myself in the mirror, and started laughing. It truly does hurt. 0/10 jaw surgery patients would recommend.
Jaw surgery stinks. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.
