I was hit with a line drive soft ball... In June 8th ,2011 and Im still having issues from this. I shattered the bone where my lower teeth connect, my upper teeth where pushed far in and then I broke the jaw in the left side the whole way through. I had a metal plate put in and had to wear rubber bands to keep the jaw in place. I have little feeling in my lips, chin and jaw. Its numb and every once in a while I get this pinching feeling ,this is a horrible feeling!! Here it is almost going on 3 mo later and the bones are not healing the way they would of hoped for. They are blaming it on me for what I'm eating but I cant eat anything thats hard only soft foods like they say. Im to afraid to eat anything hard, I dont want to hurt my jaw any more then it already is!! Could this be from lack of vitamins? Idk, but I dont get it. I maybe having surgery once again if it does not heal properly soo wish me well!! I wish you all well that has to go through something like this, ITS NO FUN!!
