TMJ arthroplasty post op pain
Hello again. I had arthroplasty on the right tmj 20 days ago. I am having worse pain now than right after surgery. My incisions (behind the ear and inside the ear) have healed up nicely so far. I am having pain in the jaw joint and the upper and lower jaw bone. I still cannot move my eyebrow or feel part of my face, but hopefully that will subside soon. I have a large boney bump on the jaw joint on my face. It was not there before. I was told by the surgeon at my post op visit that they were worried about ankolosis/fusion. I am still not able to move my jaw side to side or front to back. It hurts like crazy and I have horrible pain around the clock. I can't see the surgeon till early march. I do have pain meds, but am so worried I have to have another surgery now. I am way worse than before. Taking 800mg advil 3xday, and percocet every 4 hours, and flexeril at night. I also have my splint, but nothing is improving, it's getting worse. Is this normal? Is it normal to have increased pain a couple weeks after? If anyone has had this procedure please let me know what you experienced post op. Thanks.
