I'm now 30 hours in and only feel a bit of pressure....no pain at all since they were put on. I almost feel like something is wrong cause I'm not in pain. My only issue, which I had forgot to bring up yesterday, is that the lower right band bracket in the very back prevents my jaw from closing all the way. When I bite down, all I feel is one piece of metal holding by teeth from touching all the way. This makes eating anything solid practically impossible. So today was yogurt, carrot juice and split pea soup. my Doc did grind down the bracket as much as she could, but, it's still in the way. She tells me that the teeth will move quite a bit over these first few weeks and that the situation should right itself. In the meantime....Hello Smoothies!
