Pictures from Day 2, 3 and 4
My left (your right in the pictures) has a much more swelling than compared to the other side. I'm starting to feel a little lopsided because the uneven swelling continues in my lips. Oh well, this I can live with!
Today got much better after my last post. So much so that I think I might start to wean myself off the narcotics. So far everytime I have taken the narcotic, it didn't affect me, I didn't feel funny, it just helped significantly with the pain. Today though, I've started to feel that disoriented drugged feeling and I don't like it. My next round of medicine is at 6, so I'm going to see what happens if I just take the Tylenol, and if I'm ok then no more hard stuff for me! Now this next part is kind of gross, but I'm curious if anyone else has found this happening to them. I've been switching between a generic petroleum jelly and regular vaseline on my lips, but when I was using the vaseline I would find that big globs of almost like dried skin would peel off. But way more than could have come from my lips if they had really been that dry. It worried me at first because all this stuff was peeling off my lips and I wasn't sure if I should remove it or not. I'm using just the generic petroleum jelly now and haven't had that problem for a while. I haven't even begun to see what it's like inside my mouth, my lips are just so swollen you can't see anything inside there yet, which makes me happy that my appointment with Dr. S isn't until wednesday next week.I should be ready to be poked and prodded by him by that time! That's all for now. I think three posts for one day is sufficient:)
