Mine was wired closed for 5 weeks. It's not a good experience.

On the flip side, she'll probably lose 20-30 lb.

Mmmm------ pureed baby food. yuck!

She broke her jaw?? Damn! That'll teach her to not talk back.



Did they try and do titanium plates first? I had a friend that broke his jaw a month or so ago and they put in plates. They said if they didn't take then they would have to wire his mouth shut.

she was standing up, took two steps and passed out. they dont know why yet. the black top parking lot doesnt give much. the surgen was in just a little bit ago. she will be wired for a atleast 4 weeks, then 2 weeks with rubber bands. may need a plate in her chin. i was amazed at the amount of strangers that responded and gave assistance.
