A little "Get Well" wishes for you after such a traumatic surgery. You are so young to be going through that kind of surgery, but with your age you should heal faster, yes? I would think so.

It's good to hear how well the pain management went because as you probably already know, that is a fairly common question we have posted here.

Hope you feel better soon.

Thank you for the GET WELLS, Yes im pretty young but the dental operation was my choice to get rid of the decayed teeth that the drugs had destroyed, it was purely cosmetic....you start to become a little more self concious when your sober now, and the Growth/Mass surgery, I thought was a cyst at first but the surgeon told me otherwise that it was a mass and its pretty common,it didnt hurt, it was just alittle noticeable under my niipple and i wanted to get it out to be safe and also it didnt look attractive lol, believe it or not he said marijuana can cause tissue growths like that but the reasoning was unsure why it grew.....I never knrew that I smoked heavily for about 11 years straight 4 to 5 cigars a day, but ive been Pot free for about 18 months and drug free for about 7 months. THanks again for the replies!

After surgery, your jaw muscles may be sore and it may be hard to open your mouth for up to seven to 10 days. Your jaw muscles may have become stiff and sore from holding your mouth open during surgery. If your jaw muscles are not too sore, massage them gently with a warm, moist facecloth. Eat foods that are easy to chew such as eggs, pasta and bananas. Have drinks like milk shakes, milk and juices. Call your dentist or oral surgeon if, after seven to 10 days, your jaw muscles are still tender or if your mouth is still hard to open. Do not force your mouth open. Do not chew gum or eat hard or chewy foods. Do not have drinks like coffee and tea.
