Day 4 was my first post-op visit to the hospital. The doctor (I'm not really sure what his actual job is, he's only turned up recently and was in my operation but I don't think he's a surgeon) looked in my mouth and checked all the wounds. He said that it all looks very clean and is healing well, so that's good. I said that I was a bit concerned about midlines, but he said he thinks it's only about half a millimetre off and that it can be corrected with bands.
He then sent me off to get some x rays done, and after lots of waiting around I had them done and then went back to see him and my surgeon. They think that the x rays are looking good, and think that my bite looks fine. I kind of felt like they didn't check as thoroughly as I would've liked, but I suppose they know what they're doing! I was thinking however that I wouldn't have known hardly any of the recovery stuff that I know if it wasn't for blogging. The hospital have told me hardly anything, e.g. I wouldn't have known to sleep sitting up if it wasn't for blogging.
My next appointment at the hospital is on Thursday with my orthodontist.
