In other news, I made an appointment to see Arnett & Gunson for a consult down in Santa Barbara. These guys are private docs and the best of the best. People from all over the world fly in for them. Price tag is about 60K+ for a full surgery with them, which I can't afford, but I think the consult will be worth every penny, even if it's just for peace of mind. Not that I don't trust my team, but it will be nice to have an outside opinion on the whole thing. More than likely he'll tell me exactly what my team here tells me and I can walk into all of this with better confidence that we're doing the right thing, or maybe he'll see something differently and that will give me more to stew over. I guess we'll find out in a few weeks. I requested all of my records from my surgeon and orthodontist and plan on being honest with them that I am going for a second opinion. I don't think my ortho will care, but I hope my surgeon isn't insulted.
And in other other news, I've started to gain some weight back. I hate that I'm doing it purposely, but I've got to do it before being wired shut again. It's been a little more difficult this week because my teeth hurt from the adjustment on Thurs AND my bite is now so far off that I'm actually having issues chewing things that need a lot of grinding or small things that your teeth need to fully meet to grind down. I'm still having good luck with most indian food though ;)
