So I started the day going back to the dentist. I'm still having numbness and loss of feeling in my jaw from the center of my chin, my lower lip, and cheek area. More stays done and they can't figure out why other than to say it may be a compressed nerve so I could be looking at days weeks or even months before i regain feeling. This does not make me happy.
I did manage most all day without taking the hydrocodone and I felt "OK" not spectacular. I ran all the errands I needed and while waiting for hubby to get off duty I popped over to the base gym and did 20 min on the stationary bike as well as 20 minutes walking though not at my usual pace. I figured any was better than nothing. I finished chapter 6 in the SPARK book while riding.
Headed home and stopped to vote so that is out of the way. By the time we got home I was starting to hurt quite a bit and I was exhausted so I gave in after dinner and took one pain pill.
My appetite the last several days has been non existent. I've had to make myself eat something and I haven't hit my calorie Goal in a few days but I was close so I'm not sweating it too much. I've hit or exceeded my water goals everyday and I don't feel hungry or deprived for food and no major cravings. What I can eat is pretty limited so some things aren't as good as others. Yogurt and banana for breakfast is my staple. I'd kill for a good salad right now though! :(
