Day 6

I was able to brush most of the outside of my teeth today - very exciting!
I highly recommend two long showers a day post op. One to get the day going and one to relax you after a long day. I have my appt w/the doc at 2:15. His office has been a less than 10 min walk from the hotel. Let's see how long it takes today!

I should also mention I am only taking 600mg of ibuprofen every 6 hrs. My last dose of oxycodone was once on Day 4 before bed. My other vice is Aquaphor and Vaseline lip therapy.

Here are today's pix! My biggest smile attempt and my beautifully closed bite;)


  1. Looking good! I'm 18 days post-op today (it's hard to believe it's almost been 3 weeks). I've been taking two showers a day like you suggested and it helps tremendously. Even at Day 18, waking up is not the easiest (I'm on night meds to control grinding/clneching) and at night it's a nice way to end the day before getting in bed. Looking forward to following your progress! Checkout my progress @
