Last night i got punched in my jaw, went to the hopital they said my jaw was not broken and sent me home. Well of course today my face is swollen and a little brusied but whats bothering me is that i can not open my jaw all the way, i cant even eat! also my lymph node in my neck is also swollen. does anyone know how long this will last will i be able to open my mouth all the way again. i need some advice im not insured and certainly dont want to go back to the hospital if i dont have to. :(
