Not much has changed. Still have the bands. Bands break, I replace them. Some pain went away in the upper right of my face, where it was also more swollen than the rest of my face at one point. Less pain when I move my face muscles too. Today was the first day without any painkillers. Overall swelling is down more.
I still don’t have some feeling in my upper lip, and it does still hurt to smile from the incision/stitches, so this is all you get!
I’m working from home for the foreseeable future.
