Thanks for all the well wishes ... I really do appreciate it!
I'm back home and feeling pretty good. The surgeon said that they went in and removed the titanium plates and screws, rotated the lower jaw a couple of more millimeters to the right and slid it forward just a smidgen, and then put new plates and screws in to hold it in place. They also had to shape a couple of the teeth so that the bite would be better. The only thing is that my jaws are tightly banded shut with elastic bands again ... for the first week anyways. The reason I'm tightly banded with elastic bands is because I evidently have very stubborn jaw muscles and they didn't want to take any chances.
I feel good ... and I actually could have been released from the hospital yesterday evening. I elected to stay the night because I didn't feel comfortable leaving that early and I had to have x-rays taken early this morning. I was drinking water almost immediately upon waking up and walking around shortly thereafter. Also, like the first time, I didn't have any adverse reaction to the anethesia.
And I didn't miss American Idol ... woot!
