Well my friends, the deed has been done. I am on day four of recovery after having oral surgery last week and things are looking up.
The surgeon described the cyst in my jaw as looking like a bubble, hence the title of this post. For those of you that are just tuning in I had a mandibular cyst that was noticed back in March and has continued to grow. Naturally I got all kinds of curious about these things and decided to watch a YouTube video at 1am after my surgery.
If you can handle guts and gore, and are as intrigued as I am LOOK AT THIS.
OH. MY. GOSH.
I’ll keep my words short, I had a video to share that chronicled my day, but I no longer have the footage. Basically it’s showing how whiny I get without food (I went 28 hours without as much as a crumb) and how swollen my face looked. Oh and my mom recorded me after the surgery. That was fun.
In order to fully go to Infinity and Beyond while under anesthesia I wore the appropriate attire. I’m now thinking about turning this into a fashion blog.
My only complaint aside from feeling like I was dying because I couldn’t eat (dramatic much?) was the pain…IN MY HAND. I had minimal pain in my mouth and didn’t even fill my prescription for pain meds, but my hand hurt like hell. I had an IV
stabbed delicately placed into my vein.
It’s still bruised.
OK I’m done whining, the procedure went well, everyone did great, and I’m just nursing the remaining swelling. Life is good.
Or maybe I’m hoarding chestnuts for the winter. One will never know.
Q: What’s the longest you’ve gone without food? Clearly I’m still dwelling on this…
