It is a pleasure to read news from people who underwent the same intervention. As far as I am concerned, it is quite recent. On 9 February, I underwent a bilateral sagittal split osteotomy and everything went well. Like you, I mostly apprehended the pain. Well, I can tell you that the pain is not very bad and I am recovering from the anesthesia very well. Physically, I look like Mafalda with the swelling, but I trust the result. What is the most annoying is the food, because I only eat puréed food, but I really appreciate the nutritionist’s little guide and the proposed recipes.
I am often hungry and I noticed that I need to eat often. And what is tasty is not the handy ready-to-eat puréed food, but rather the meals that look like what I usually eat, for instance cooked chicken mixed with broth in a blender, cooked vegetables that are blended to make purée, etc. It is tastier! I also really like smoothies, complete-meal soups and I even rediscovered ice cream! With a little bit of maple syrup to spoil myself a little!
I am looking forward to seeing what is in store for me, but I trust my oral surgeon and my orthodontist. They have my trust.
Good luck to the next ones!
