Update to I'm F'd. And I really am F'D

Well I just got home from the Surgeon and my jaw is broken.
They are going to have to wire me shut for 4 weeks, or I will have to get a titanium plate put in my jaw.

All of this BS from having a wisdom tooth removed.

Re: Update to I'm F'd. And I really am F'D

Looks like I am going to be on Ensure and Blender food for 4 weeks.
I am just depressed over this. My wife is freaking out.
The good thing in all of this is that I am a District Manager, so it won't hurt me at work.

But what if this had happened to an hourly employee?
I don't see how they would be able to pay their bills.

Aww, man, that's tough to hear. Sorry and best wishes.

Good of you to show compassion at this time when you are suffering so much.

Peace

Mike

Sorry to hear that!

If you are looking for a silver lining in all this, a good friend of mine had his jaw broken in 3 places when he was attacked with a baseball bat. His jaw was wired for 6 weeks.

Before his 'incident', he used to party pretty hard, drank a LOT, and was overweight.

Since alcohol would cause some bad side effects to the pain killers he was on, he stayed off the stuff. He lost about 30 pounds, and hasn't been drunk since (that was about 16 years ago).

Best of luck! At least you can still drive your new car with a wired jaw.

LOL.

That was the first thing everyone said. I guess that diet I've been needing to get on, is gonna happen sooner than I thought.

Cheeseburgers will go into a blender just fine!

And imagine how drunk you'll get drinking all of your alcohol through a straw, with no substance on your stomach.

Re: Update to I'm F'd. And I really am F'D

I had jaw surgery when I was 16 and had my mouth wired shut for 4 weeks.
The funny thing was my mom got this recipe book from the Dr. for puree'd food, and some of it actually tasted pretty good.
By the way 3 years prior to this surgery I had to have 8 teeth pulled at once (including my 4 wisdom teeth) to make way for braces, so I feel your pain....still have a fear of dentist to this day.

Re: Update to I'm F'd. And I really am F'D

Whoa whoa whoa - ONE wisdom tooth pulled? That's messed up. I had 4 pulled plus one baby tooth when I was in high school and it was no biggie. The dentist must have been hung over or something. Were you right out when it was happening? Cause when mine were pulled I was conscious - watching the whole thing. I mean they really have to haul on the teeth sometimes - but I would think you'd be able to see jaw-breaking force being exerted. Damn man. Raw deal I say. Although - there's a lot of good soft food.

Apple sauce . . . .

Yogurt . . . .

KD . . . . .

Soup . . . .

Oatmeal . . . .

Liver pate . . . . (kidding)
