Hang in there after surgery, obviously your procedure is much more dangerous than mine was but once the swelling goes down after about a week and the wounds on the inside of your mouth heal you will be just fine. Also, you will be able to talk with it wired shut, trust me, I would even try to sing once in a while. The only thing that tough was when I had to yawn or sneeze! Drove me crazy! Hope everything goes according to plan and you recover quickly.
Bahahaha singing with jaw wired ?!?

I might have to try this

Unfortunately I doubt my recovery will be as fast cause my jaw is supposed to still be numb after 3 weeks lol. And even after the 8 weeks, ill still be only eating soft foods.

No steaks or cheeseburgers for me for a while

Good luck !!!
Could be a dumb question but why did y'all call it a "hog killin" surgery?

Good luck to you man. I was supposed to have a similar surgery this past July and it has been pushed to Dec/January sometime. Not looking forward to it honestly, but will be so happy when it is over with and I don't have to deal with it anymore. I am pretty level though (all my teeth touch), I just have an underbite that is causing issues.

On medical leave I spent sooooooo much time on TW!
We're rooting for you!
Keep us posted...
Thanks man
I figured I could post that pic confidently cause atleast I'm doing something about it
