A week after the second surgery  
Stitches finally started coming loose today (which they're supposed to; they're meant to dissolve), and once they started, they kept on going -- a total of 7 or 8 lengths of suture came out over the course of the day. It's amazing how much the discomfort diminishes with each new length of suture removed.

I'm thinking now that I may postpone Part III until February, rather than late January, to give my upper teeth a chance to "toughen up" a bit, but that'll also depend on the dentist's preferences and schedule.

Oh, I like it when pain decreases. :)

Dental pain is rapidly approaching "deep scrape", near the top of the pain list.

My 10 is still "getting the hiccups less than a week after breaking three ribs", from back in 2002.

The sutures coming loose is pretty much not painful, or just for a brief moment. And, definitely, yay for less dental ow.
