I think the only "pain" so to say in this entire journey was not being able to chew hard on hard food until about 2 weeks plus, 3 weeks after surgery. That period was horrible for me cox i am a food junkie and i love food O.O I could only suck on it and then chew lightly. But actually i started eating chicken 1 week plus post surgery haha. In Korea. But then actual proper chewing only started about 3rd week post op! So to compensate for not being able to chew hard food like chicken..
