|Day 6 bruising on neck and under chin|
No pain, no fever, no complications. The really unexpected thing is that I have had no serious headaches for over a week.
Still eating relatively soft foods: smoothie with yogurt and berries and chia seeds for breakfast, brown rice and kale casserole for lunch. Will try to make a real stir fry dinner tonight if my energy lasts. Planning to make tofu and vegetable stir fry.
Got out today and took my car to the dealer to get a minor problem fixed, then stopped at the store for a few groceries I forgot to get yesterday. Felt pretty normal. Like yesterday, I had my neck wrapped in a scarf to avoid questions about my colorful neck.
So in terms of function, I think the surgery worked. It seems easy to fully close my mouth now. Not sure how happy I am from the beauty side of things. I am trying to wait until the all the swelling is gone to pass judgement. Right now I think it makes me look more severe from some angles. We'll see.
