Exclamation TMJ Arthroplasty Tomorrow, HELP!

Hi All,
Tomorrow I am having a TMJ Arthroplasty. The plan is to stitch the cartilage back in place, which has been continually stuck forward causing lots of pain and discomfort, not to mention a horrible range of motion. If the cartilage is too damaged, it will be removed (I guess they said scar tissue will eventually form and replace the cartilage but my range of motion will still be compromised)

I would like to hear from others who have had this procedure, what the pain is like, recovery time, if you spent a night in the hospital (my doctor said it is up to me if I want to or not).

Thank you!

Unhappy Re: TMJ Arthroplasty Tomorrow, HELP!

I have had this surgery back in February 2011 and I have had a lot of problems with it and ended up in more pain and a paralysed Eyebrow. I was wondering how yours went and if you have had any problems from it?
