Update (4 months since surgery)

So, In two days it will be 4 months since my surgery. I am almost back to normal. And I am pretty much eating everything in sight :) I still cannot open my mouth to my full potential but its getting better. I wake up in the morning and i am kind of in pain, but it goes away. I love my new bite. I feel so much better. Its weird, because sometimes I forget and I feel insecure,l than I remember I dont need to worry anymore! I deffinatly smile soooo much more than I used to and I didnt think it was possible. I will post some before pics and one of when I was swollen so you can see, and a new current one. It is a huge difference:) The surgeon did a great job.

Before:Here Was when I looked the worst! Because my braces aligned my teeth and made the underbite worse.

After surgery while I was swollen:
I looked scary! But honestly that was the worst of it... it got better from that point on.

I feel so much better about myself!!! I Go to the dentist tomorrow to have my firat cleaning since the surgery and I get my braces tightened, the dentist says a few more months of the braces, I cant wait!!!! Although, I dont hate the braces as much now!
