TMJ Surgery – 4 Weeks Later…

Honestly, it feels like my surgery was only a week ago at most. The last 4 weeks have flown by.

If you haven’t read my previous posts about this journey you might like to read those first: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5 and Week Two.

Since my surgery, I have had a few mishaps. The main one being an inner ear infection – My goodness it hurts, still. Two antibiotics – one oral and one straight in the ear canal has been tried so far. Admittedly, my hearing has improved but the pain is still there.

Energy levels are at an all-time low. I sleep a lot – for someone who is usually unable to sleep much whatsoever it’s a bit of a jarring change. When I’m awake, I barely have the energy to find the motivation to do anything.

To be honest, I haven’t got much to report. It’s been tough but slowly I am able to eat more and more which is awesome but clouded by the ear pain.

Have you had an ear infection? What helped the pain? I would love to hear anything to relieve the pain and discomfort. Or if you have any other questions or comments please leave them down below!
