Wednesday ended up being a good day. I went for my appointment at the dermatologist, and they were on time, which was a lovely surprise.
The lady had everything ready, so I sat back in the chair, and closed my eyes.
She looked at the inside of the lip, and saw that it had formed a scab, even though I had put Vaseline on it several times a day.
She said it was a painful area, and that she would stop between them. Boy, did it hurt when she lifted each stitch on the lip.
I know she was as gentle as possible, but I was so happy when it was done.
It can take up to a month to completely heal, and I need to use Vaseline several times a day. I asked about the inside of the lip. She gave me a sample of an ointment to use on it.
I am still not sure when the swelling will be down enough to have my top dentures in. Until then my smile will only be at home.
I will start light exercise today.
