Well I had the rubber bands put on Monday afternoon and here we are 3 days later. It's not as painful as it was the first day but they are still really tight. My muscles must really not like this whole me wanting a new bite thing. They're like "Hey! Watcha, trying to do?!"
I've been having headaches as a result; anyone else experience this? I haven't taken any of the hard stuff today because I was afraid that it was causing me to be too sleepy throughout the day, and I need to get back to work eventually! Well, no hard meds today and I've been more tired than ever! I've only been taking Tylenol and it does absolutely nothing for the pain. It just makes the headaches go away, which I admit, is nice, but argg pain. It's not the same kind of pain I had right after the surgery either. Right now it really is all about the bands. I guess they are doing their job but I do wish my muscles would hurry up and learn where this new bite is so I don't have to suffer anymore.
So yeah, the swelling is up because of the bands. Who knows why. I do hate feeling all puffy, but I went ahead and took some pictures anyway.
Hope everyone is doing well and thank you for your comments! It helps keep me going! And it is so comforting to know that there are people out there experiencing or have experienced what I am going through. If it weren't for y'all, I'd probably be calling my surgeon constantly heh :)
