19 months post op

Just a quick update... here's a picture of me from last October... my 30 year reunion from high school.

All is well. I have most, if not all, of my feeling back. I never did lose feeling in my lips (thankfully!). I feel normal, like this is how I've always been. It's fun running into people who knew me before surgery and to see them looking at me intensely... I always ask if they think I look different and then tell them why.

I'm sleeping much better. I'm feeling like a normal person. I don't feel like I always have to smile so people don't see my "deformity" (lack of lower jaw and chin). I saw some pre-op pictures today and I'd love to post some pre and post op pictures. Probably will someday soon...

Bye for now.

You look great. It's amazing what the surgery can do for your confidence!
