    It turned out to be a tricky operation for my oral surgeon today .I now have a new set of upper and lower dentures and am resting on pain killers and antibiotics. I am allowed to take them out tomorrow afternoon to begin salt washes etc. My diet is soft and consists of macaroni cheese and creamed rice, tin fruit and lots of icecream  as the wounds heal. The op on roof of mouth feels OK But the lower teeth caused difficulties and stitches.I have another appointment at surgeon on Tuesday and a trip to my Dental Mechanic following. 😀

    New teeth, But a bit of pain as wounds  & stitches gums adjust. Soft foods and TLC but a vino or two with my neighbour tonight and one or two watching final of Masterchef eased it a bit.
