8 Weeks post op! Oops thought I posted this

Hey everyone! I am eight weeks post op and wow does time ever fly when you're feeling good :) I am happy to report I have been pain free! I get random sharp pains now and then just from the nerves but it's not to bad. I have a habit of puckering my lips when I feel pain or weirdness, I don't even realize I'm doing it and I probably look so silly :p 

I saw my surgeon on Tuesday, everything went well. He is still very impressed with his work (which he should be!) he took a quick look at my bite and said come back in a month and that was it. 

Today I saw my orthodontist, I still can't get enough of the "oos" and "awes" i get when I see people I haven't seen in a while. This whole experience (post op anyways) has been a major confidence boost. I noticed that I still do things to hide my mouth and chin and I really have to train myself to stop since my face looks fine now :D they switched my upper wire and took out all the hooks (thank god) my teeth have definitely took a beating since surgery, they look so yellow and dingey I hate it. They removed my upper canine brackets and places them in a new position to tilt my roots. It felt weird to have an adjustment for the first time in forever. They kept resting their hands on my chin which is still super sensative, but I made it through. I am still in elastics, they are a trapezoid configuration, it think that's the right shape haha I am seeing movements in my teeth but I'm sure they know what they are doing. 

Life has been busy with the new house and all the renovations plus full time job! Hope all is well

Working hard on the new yard!
