4 weeks - splint out!

Hi all, I'm 4-weeks post-op now. My splint got taken out today. What

a wierd feeling - I guess it takes some time to get used to not having

your mouth full of plastic.

My back molars don't touch, which my OS says is standard alignment for

everyone he does - in 2 weeks I will see my OD and he will adjust my

braces so my molars line up better.

I've gotten the go ahead for 'mushy' food, which is a step up from

blended food, we'll see if my jaw works well enough for the mushy


My lips still don't touch together naturally, the Dr. said I need to

practice stretching out my lips to stretch out the scar tissue from

the incisions - I have about a 1 cm gap between them at rest right now.

But...each week seems to bring a new level of healing....so hang in

there everyone just out of surgery - and thanks for all the advice

from people further down the healing path!
