Day 59

Update on numbness: Not a ton has changed, but there is definitely more feeling in my chin than there was before. It's definitely not 100% feeling back, but it's getting better and better. My lips still have a little bit of numbness. This is something I don't feel has improved much in the last 2-3 weeks, but I am sure it has and will continue to gain more and more feeling back. I don't notice numbness at all in either my chin or lips when I am going about my normal life. Putting on chapstick and touching my lips reminds me that they still have little tingles. I am not sure what the deal with my chin is, when I pucker my lips the indentations in my chin aren't normal yet, so I am assuming that means the soft tissue hasn't fully settled or there is still some level of swelling there?

    Are your gums and roof of your mouth still numb? I just started being able to chew and I am finding it quite difficult because of all the numbness in my mouth.

    Sounds similar to me, Dani! I also have the indentations on my chin. It's funny because I am not sure what was there pre-surgery and what is "new", what will stay, and what will change. The changes now are interesting! I was looking at 4 month pic of others online and wow, I think we are still in for some changes and we will look even better in the coming months.

    The roof of my mouth is only numb on the right side, not the left. My top gums are numb. Neither of these bother me at all and I don't care if it ever comes back...makes flossing easier... :-)

    But I do really want the feeling to come back to the left side of my chin. I have been taking B12 and I think it is getting better. When I move my mouth, I can still notice my chin is tight and numb.
