My crooked smile ~ an update

The location for the biopsy

At the beginning of the month, I had a biopsy done on the bone that is growing on the right side of my jaw. The procedure was fairly painless (thanks to me being unconscious for the biopsy and painkillers afterwards). It felt kind of like getting a filling done in as far as that side of my face felt a bit numb. It was also good to see the admiring looks that the nurse gave the stitchwork afterwards. I had an appointment during last week when I was hoping that I would get the results of the biopsy and the strategy for what would happen next. Unfortunately, the appointment was a bit of a waste of time as the consultant wasn’t there and neither were the results. (New appointment is 2nd March, I’ll keep you posted). The next stage is not for the squeamish as it will involve a larger slicing of my face in order to remove the excess growth. Hopefully the end result will be that the bone growth will have ceased. If it has, then I can continue onto the next stage, wearing braces on my teeth for two years before having my jaw broken and reset. As I mentioned in a previous post (if I was clever, I’d have a link thing here but I’m not so there isn’t). Thank you for all you kindness and words of encouragement, they really do mean a lot to me and I hope you know who you are.
