Well, I am back. Surgery went Ok, but still healing. What little neck tissue I had is now gone. I had other teeth removed end of April to make way for denture plate. Now left side is not healing from that.. may have to go and have bone scraped and go back into the HBO chamber.. I keep hoping his nightmare will end.. I guess not!! The thought of a 2nd Jaw surgery is really pushing me over the top.

Jewells, I feel the frustration you are going through. This is not a fun game. For myself I can only take one step at a time. Give him a hug, cry with him & go to the next step. smile

Thanks for posting your update. Its been a while and I had hoped everything was well.

Ive been thru the scraping of the bone and its really not that bad. I chose to stay awake and just get a local for the procedure. It took maybe 2 minutes at the very most for the oral surgeon to scrap the bone and put a couple stitches in. Honestly it was one of the easier procedures Ive been thru. I would rather do the bone scraping than HBO any day.

Hang in there, you are past the worst of it.



PS... I moved Jewells original post over to a new thread in the Introduce Yourself section if you want to leave a reply for her.

Carolyn,

Welcome to the forum. You have posted on a really old thread and it’s likely the person your post is meant for will not see it. To get some response to your question, maybe you would like to re-post under the thread ”Introduce Yourself” and include some information about your husband’s diagnosis and treatment. Hopefully, someone will be able to respond.
