Hi Everyone - hoping someone can help!
I have stones blocking my saliva flow from my gland. I am currently on a waitlist to have the submandibular gland removed. I understand the complications such as swelling and temporary and potentially permanent nerve damage. I am getting married in 2 months and am quite concerned about the temporary nerve bruising and "crocked" smile that could occur. I think i may get into the surgeon next week which would be exactly 2 months from my wedding day. From your experiences, how serious are the lip and mouth drooping? Is it minor and something that only you could notice on yourself? Or should i be concerned and be waiting till after the wedding to have this done? The only thing is that i have pain and issues eating now, so i would like to get it out ASAP, but also don't want to not look like myself for my wedding day.
Please share your experiences below to help me make this decision
