Okay. So it's been a really really long time! For the longest time nothing was happening....I'd go in for a "tune up" and then I'd be good to go for another 4-6 weeks but the time has come....SURGERY!!!! I wasn't suppose to be ready until like September but I'm a little ahead of schedule. I met with my surgeon yesterday and we set the date for July 22nd. I go in next month to meet with a nutritionist, and do all the work up-history and physical- make sure I'm healthy. I'm so happy and so excited. I want to be really positive going into this because I know it's going to be a tough recovery. I'm taking off 2 weeks from work but it may need to be more??? All these blogs say 4-6 weeks but my ortho was like Oh yeah, you could go back in a week. Yeah right. Let's wait and see what my surgeon says. For all you just now reading my blog I will be having upper and lower jaw surgery to correct an over bite and open bite. I will also be having my chin reshaped. Time to get smart. Eat right, drink less, work out....I want to make sure I'm super healthy going into this. DETOX! For all you out there just now starting this process, stick with it! And for all of you out there who are also about to have surgery, best of luck!
