They only did my upper jaw, or a Lefort I, so I'm only in bands and not wires. My surgeon moved my jaw forward and 4 mm up. I'm not sure how much he moved it forward but I'll ask at my next appointment. My "un-banding" appointment is set for May 30. I've been eating a lot of protein drinks. My favorites have been:
- Special K
Anyways back to my story, so I left the hospital all fine and dandy. But for some reason I started to get rashes all over my arms and I started to vomit everything I was drinking. (it sucks vomiting when ur mouth is banded shut!) I felt really nauseous, it was really bad. I couldn't get ahold of my doctor since I think he was calling my cellphone but my cell has been dead. I think I might've gotten food poisoning. My mom was making me some pretty weird asian soups... So I had to go back to the hospital get an iv and they gave me some anti nausea pills. Right before surgery I weighted 124 lb. I left the hospital at 113 lb.! I look like a skeleton :(
I'm feeling great now though and have been trying to drink something every 3 hours to make sure I don't lose anymore weight and also adding flax seed oil now. I don't mean to scare people but it happens :/
Here are some photos
My face is thin so so the swelling just makes me look normal now lol.
