The good news is that my teeth are ready for surgery. The bad news is, my next appointment isn't until 9th August!!!
So I went to the orthodontist on Wednesday 23rd May, and she looked at my teeth and said they were ready for surgery, and did some moulds, changed my wires etc. She took off those transparent elastics that were across my front teeth too, which was good because they were more yellow than transparent by then! She said I need to book one final appointment with her to have final measurements done, but that the appointment had to be when this other ortho/surgeon man was there too. However, when I went to book this appointment, it turns out that the next time they'll both be there is 9th August! I've also got to have another 'joint clinic' appointment, which is where I'll see my surgeon again. I've got to wait to get that appointment date in the post, but the receptionist said it's more likely to be after than before the 9th August appointment :(
It's all so slooooow, and I'm so sick of having braces now! I was hoping I would be having my surgery in July/August, and now it looks like it's not going to be until September/October! I know I should be grateful that I'm getting this done at all, and I really am, but I'm just starting to lose my patience now. I feel like I have to put so many things in my life on hold until these braces are off, and I'm sick of feeling ugly!
