36 Hours Post Op w/Photos

So It has been 36 hours since surgery and I feel a lot better. I have full feeling on the left side of my mouth and lips. The right side still feels numb and tingly. I do not have nay bruising which is nice. I am going to venture into the world today. I think it would be the best time since my husband goes back to work tomorrow and I am still on vicidin and will not be able to drive tomorrow. I am a little swollen but I am sure that very few people will even notice it.
The first photo was taken 2 hour Pre OP.

The second is 18 hours Post OP. This photo is to show how my teeth have already moved. In the past the 3rd and 4th teeth use to be behind the 1st and 2nd teeth. I can't believe how much they moved already.

The 3rd is 36 hours Post OP. I do have swelling and don't look that good at 10 am but I could look alot worse.


  1. hey there,

    how are you coping, you had your surgery a couple days before mine.

    hows the expansion going?

    Its no where near as bad as you think it will be.


  2. Every thing went well. I am now in the expansion stage. I don't really have any pain and i just have a gap between my front 2 teeth as expected.
