Hi - I'm barely a week post op and had numbness prior to surgery. Today, I'm getting throbs in my jaw/AN side teeth, tingly-tongue, and needle-zap sensations in my AN eye. My eye isn't itchy and no visual disturbance, but this afternoon I actually felt a cool sensation when I put in drops. I haven't felt a thing in that eye for a few months so I see this as a positive, if somewhat uncomfortable sign.
I think I'm benefitting from not having damage for an awful long time, and my surgeons being very careful not to touch my facial nerve - just hope this is signs of pressure coming off the nerve(s) and that it doesn't grow back!
It seems like no one tells you what you might expect - just wait and give it time? But what is "it" we wait for? I hope you are getting signals that your nerves are getting ready to get back to work for your face.
