Another before & after

Okay the "angelic light effect" was an accident... I swear... but it beats the "before" photo, and that's the whole point of these before and afters, right?

May pics - 3 months post op.




Still some swelling...NOT used to my face yet.  Some days I feel like a wildebeast, some days I feel just fine.  It's an adjustment.  I like some things, and am not used to other things.  What I do know, is that reading other people's blogs, everyone is going through this.  We pick apart little "spots" on our faces that aren't "right", etc.  We probably sound silly to other people, but it's your face, man.  Geez.    

Oh...I have COMPLETE feeling back.  It's been all good for about 2-3 weeks now.  No numb spots at all.  I did do something about a month after surgery  - I took these vitamin B12 sublingual vitamins.   It doesn't make a difference if it's not sublingual - it was just easier to take because it melts under your tongue.  Anyway, it "supposedly" helps nerve regeneration, so I took it.  I'm just one case - probably not linked (and surgery man didn't have an opinion on it one way or the other).  But if it did help, then it really worked.  :)
