My achey face continued into this day. During the nights of Day 21 and 22 I woke up at around 3am with a really bad pain in my jaw. I had to take some paracetamol and put my ice pack on my face. Just to make matters worse my braces have been really rubbing on my cheek and I've got an ulcer and lots of saw lumpy bits, so it made talking and eating difficult. Me and my dad took my sister's dog for a walk, it was nice to get some exercise.
Hi I'm Sarah, I'm 23 and I'm planning to undergo lower and upper jaw surgery to correct my overbite and gummy smile. I was offered but declined this surgery when I was a teenager, but have now decided to go ahead with the procedure. When making this decision I found it really helpful to read other blogs, and hope that documenting my surgery will help others!
