On my Day 2 I was progressively getting worse because I was accumulating liquid in my sinuses and I was becoming more and more reliant on mouth breathing. It got pretty bad, but eventually my oral surgeon came by after he was done and cleaned me up with a bit of hydrogen peroxide in the nose(for blood clots) and then used my suction tube and attached a thin small tube to suck out my sinus cavities. It helped a lot, and I slept that night. Dr. Tocchio saved me from hitting the wall, because at my breathing rate I was not going to sleep that night.
My sleep on the 2nd night was actually decent! I slept for 3 hour intervals. My surgeon also put half popsicle sticks in my mouth to keep it open. It helped with the breathing at the cost of a dry tongue. It was worth it.
Here's a picture of me on the 3rd day. I'm going to be discharged soon
The swelling has gone down, it may be hard to see but I barely feel any pain, just from my skin being stretched out if I try and touch it,
Anyhow I'm going to stick to clear fluids to help things flow through my system. Will keep updating.
