its been 2 weeks and 3 days since i have upper jaw surgery. A lot of my swelling is down and I have a feeling good, however my oral cavity still don't come together. This was suppose to be a positive aspect of the surgery and I be looking for a professional answer as to what I should do. Is it normal that the maw don't close right away? Did the surgery not go as planned? Help please!
Major surgical procedures usually require a follow-up so the doctor can sort sure you are doing OK and healing in general post-op. If you don't have a follow-up planned, call your doctor in a minute and schedule one.
First rotten, if you have concerns, give the name your doctor. They would know whether the surgery went all right or not.
Second, inflammation can take a LONG time to come down. Weeks to months is not unusual.
