Goodbye pain!

Yes, indeed, my jaw joint pain has all but disappeared! That arthrocentesis really did the trick! And my bite - lovely, centred, comfortable - I am blessed. I absolutely love the way my lips come together easily and my jaw can sit relaxed, nearly closed, and when I do close it all my molars fit together beautifully.

My mouth opening is a bit better now with hard exercising of it. I can get a big fat grape in between my front teeth without bursting the skin if that is any indication. But still forwards and sideways is fairly dismal.

I can still hear the bones in my joint scraping.

However, I think it will come right.

And Dana, yes the time does seem to have gone really fast. My life is full and busy and it is nice not to have my mouth totally dominating it!

  1. Wow....It seems as if this is the moment we all wait for after our surgery. And here you are, right on the verge of it!

    That's really great news! Happy Healing...
