Today was my 3rd follow up. I did get my splint out YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Boy did I have bad breath. I was so glad to get home and fully brush my teeth. Yet I still brush with a baby toothbrush because my mouth does not open much. My oral surgeon told me that everything looks GREAT but I still have a ways to go in the healing process. Still eat only mushy foods,No chewing,yes I can exercise but walking only he said. Next Monday I meet with my orthodontics and Tuesday I will have another follow up with my Oral surgeon.O yea NO blowing of the nose still. Since my splint has been out today I have experienced some pain in my jaws and a minor headache not liking this at all. I still do not like to talk much,because I sound funny and my jaws begin to hurt. Tomorrow I will try to do my walk at home exercise DVD. At this point my mouth still wont close,I cant feel my bottom lip or chin yet. So other than going to Dr appointments and home that's all I want to do for now. However I am very excited to have that stinky and O SO SMELLY SPLINT OUT OF MY MOUTH!! One last thing... I have to now wear my rubberbands 2hrs in the morning,2hrs in the evening and when I go to bed. I sure thought I was done with the rubberbands guess not!! I'm still icing my jaws because as you can see I still am a little puffy.
