I am thrilled with the results. No pain, no swelling (so far) I am concerned, however, that one of the stitches came out. should I be concerned? Very little bleeding, only at night, some seepage. My pre-operative fears were unfounded. Ha Ha Dr Nick said I would hate him for the pain!! Didn't happen!! Can't wait to get my lower dentures. Enjoying my "mushy" diet, but not for long!
