January should have been the month that I would get my finals but there has been a setback. After taking the impressions my dentist realized that I need more bone shaved done in the back for the snap ins to fit! I’m not even gonna go into why this wasn’t done during the first surgery!
So, I’m scheduled for a 2nd surgery on January 26th to shave down more bone. They offered to do it in clinic with needles for numbing but after the uncapping, I refused. 20 needles all over your mouth is not something I ever want to do again! So, I will be put to sleep, thank God.
After the surgery, I’m expected to heal within 1 to 2 months and at that point I can finally get my finals. March will be one year without teeth and I am so ready for this journey to be over. I want to be able to look in the mirror and feel like myself.
This has been a long, tough road…
