It has been three days after surgery and although this day has been the worse as far as pain goes, I can tell that my blues are starting to lift and drift away.
Mentally and emotionally I am slowly adjusting to not having very many teeth in the right side of my mouth and I will just have to be patient until next Spring when I will get my three new teeth. I get my new tooth on my left side this Fall.
It takes a long time for the body to make bone and fuse together with the bone implants that was put in. I will have to have additional surgery to place 3 metal sockets down into the new bone part and then that has to fuse and turn to bone and then I get my new teeth screwed in place. I am going to ask my most wonderful Surgeon if he can do all three surgeries at once, rather than three separate ones. Regardless, this won't take place until late fall or early December.
Weight loss would have been a nice side effect, but unfortunately, smoothies and ice cream are loaded with calories.
When you read this entry sweetheart, know that I am very grateful for your love and patience in having such an ornery moany and groany wifey. I love you, Mark!
