So glad you can get back to flapping your jaw, now.....I am sure your family has missed that!  (You know I love ya! Wink )  And OH...do I understand the craziness of coming out of anesthesia!  Just happy none of the people that were the designated driver ever thought to pull the phone out and start recording me....I'd been famous on Youtube!  On second thought, you might go to Youtube and check to make sure no one saw you and taped it.....  HeeHee

I hope you can get the popping under control....mine has been popping since I was 15 or so...but I'm in no pain and it's just become 'part' of me now.  I don't really think about it much.  Because this is new for you, I know it feels very irritating.  But the important thing is that, IF it's going to pop, that you have no pain.  I hope and pray that at least will be the case!!

I am glad to hear everything went well for you!  Smile 

I don't pop.  I just grind.   No   So I wouldn't know what to say about that.  I just know my mother always talked about how her brother's jaw popped so bad that when they were eating supper my grandfather couldn't sit at the table with him.  It drove him crazy.   HeeHee  I don't know whether anything was ever done for it when he was an adult.  I never heard whether people ever got that taken care of.  I wonder if they can. Now you've made me curious.  Smile 


Who's going to do the cooking?!?!

Well so far no one has heard it but me. The doctor felt it as he was having me open and close . I have a cold right now, and the only thing that is hurting is when I sneeze. I do feel better today so hopefully by the time I go back to the Doc on Tues I will be back to normal.
No pain with the popping so that's good, but it does feel like its out of joint too. Makes it hard to chew when it feels that way.

I have stopped taking all the meds they sent home. They were knocking me out, so Motrin is my friend. Have a Great Easter everyone!!

Went back for a follow up today. Dr. Wilson did a diagnostic block on the joint. ( Inserted a needle into the joint and numbed the nerve. Oddly, when the nerve is numb I am able to move/ open better. This is without a doubt a joint problem. He told me that usually people with my problem have 5 steps to evaluate how bad they are ...me being at about a 3 now. He feels that I am a good one for surgery. They would go in and remove a part of the joint that causes so much of the stiffness. I would be down about two weeks.

I filled him in on Lance and all I will be dealing with in the next month. That will give me time to decide. Right now I just don't think I can do that, at least not this year. In the meantime, I am going to have to stay on an anti- inflammatory medicine just to have any type of movement. I may have to get off of that closer to time for the transplant because it is somewhat a blood thinner. Its a lot to think about and deal with...just have to take this week by week. Please pray that this will get better on its own, and I can handle the stress of all that goes on. Thanks!
