Hi Sherri! I just wanted to thank you for the information you gave me on your TMJ surgery & your very informative website. All these things helped ease my mind going into this.

I had my surgery on Monday Feb. 14 and am back home now. Still not ship-shape of course but getting better each day. Doctor says everything went very well, even though it took a little longer than expected (almost 6 hours instead of 4-5).

Still on full liquid diet but looking forward to that first pizza!!! (and fries, and hamburger, and etc. etc.).

Thanks again for your help,
Sincerely,
Julie
: Dear Julie,

: I too (like Charlene - Hello Charlene)have had the surgery. Had the discs removed and Christensen Implants put in - in 1993. I have NO pain, no problems eating whatever I want and do NOT regret having the surgery. I DO wish I NEVER had a problem with TMJ but....life goes on! I had a wonderful Oral/Maxillofacial Surgeon who continues to follow my recovery.
: I would never tell anyone to 'have or 'don't have'
: the surgery - it's a personnal decision and one that you will have to live with. I can only speak for myself in saying it gave me back my life!
: You may also e-mail me if you have any questions.
: Take care!

: Sherri
