I use to have severe obstructive sleep apnea due to my receding chin. I wanted to get off the C-PAP breath machine so I had to go through a Major Jaw Surgery last August. I had my jaw broke in 4 different places, 2 breaks on each side, a metal plate and 3 screws on each side too. As you can see from the pictures, my face tripled in size. The picture of me and my C-PAP was the night before I got my braces on, the next picture was a day after my surgery and the bottom picture was taken 3months after the surgery; I was swollen for weeks and weeks!!
I made a little pocket to hold my story about getting diagnosed, getting my braces for the surgery and the actual surgery and recovery; b/c it was a 3 year process I had a lot of journaling!!! I also made another pocket at the top right side that holds many more horrific pictures of the recovery. Thanks for viewing. -Nikki Sivils
