I had my gum graft done Wednesday the 10. I have had surgeries in the past ,but this seems to be the worst recovery I have ever been through. The healing process of my gum grafts has been worse than when I had my acl and meniscus surgery recovery. The whole left side of my face is swollen even up to my left eye. I can barely open my mouth. I don't feel like eating. Two of my teeth have been throbbing with pain. I can't sleep and the only time my face isn't swollen is when I first take the ice pack off. I still have to have this surgery again for the right side of my teeth. There is one pro to this and it is not losing my teeth but right now I'm so miserable.
