Day 39: Photo taking!

So after last nights 'blip' and alot of amazingly lovely comments from you guys - I feel alot better about my face, and alot better in general, so this post is dedicated to you guys. It's so nice that you're not alone in this whole jaw surgery experience, whether that be friends and family, but it's even nicer knowing that you're surrounded by such a diverse yet amazing group of people, who are all part of the 'jaw army' together - although we're all generally having jaw surgery, our own stories, procedure and recovery is unique, and that's what gets me through the tougher days, knowing that each of you have gone through yours and got out smiling the other side, so thank you, for simply being there!

As much as updates goes, I had my first ice cream today. Fair enough I couldn't eat the cornet but the bit on top was a-ma-zing! I also took plenty of photos - last night after my strop I decided that I was going to take absolutely, no more photos until i'm totally recovered so THEN I could get used to the results, but today i'm on something different - if you're reading this, take millions of photos, every single day, and use these photos! Since jaw surgery i've made sure that every photo has been updated on any social networking site such as FB, my phone background, etc.. not only will it let you embrace your new face, it lets you get used to it to!

My favorite photo today has got to be the one of James and I side on, i've always envied people who could have pictures like this as side-on I was always so self conscious about my jaw, but now I can too!

  4. Hey Emma - you look awesome ! Glad you're feeling happier. Could I ask you a quick question. I think I read somewhere that you had jaw spasms at one point? What did it feel like? Earlier today, I was in the middle of talking to my boss and my jaw kind of felt like it jolted forward on the right hand side and the pain over the next hour was just awful.. I had to leave work. The painkillers have kicked in but I don't know if it was a spasm or something else? Does it sound similar to what you've experienced? I've sent messages to my surgeon but no reply yet.

    1. Sure thing! It sounds like a spasm to me, it's a very weird sensation, it almost feels as though your jaw has totally moved to one side although in reality it's only probably moved a tiny amount! It happens incredibly quickly too! I'd still get checked out by your surgeon though just to double check, from the spasms i've had none have been overly painful that i've needed pain meds! Let me know how it goes and what he said :)
