Post Numbness in lip and chin

I had dental surgery 13 days ago and have numbness in my lip and chin. I came across a message posted on october 21, 2000 by Dayna at 14:34:27. There are replies from various people.
Is it possible to either contact Dayna or to find out if her numbness went away?

Hi Marjson
I had three apicectomies, done by a specialist. Two on the top left and one on the bottom right. The nerve that comes out under that tooth has apparently been bruised and therefore caused the numbness. The specialist says it could take up to six months to come back!!!!!! It is an awful feeling, half dead and half pins and needles.
