So, I was Sucker-Punched by some ***k-a$$ gang member when I was walking home from a party on halloween, and suffered a broken jaw. I have a few questions regarding care and surgery and pain... (I'm sure if you are replying to this, you understand the pain I am feeling) My jaw is broken between my K-9 tooth and the next one back on the left side, fractured(and dislocated) on the right side. It is now wednesday morning 1 am(5 days later)... I still have not received surgery...

Question 1) How bad does surgery feel (compared to the pain before)?
Question 2) How long will it be before I can feel my lip again?
Question 3) How much weight (lbs) can I expect to lose?
Question 4) How long should it be before I get the wires out of my mouth?
Question 5) How much does it effect your daily activities(besides eating.lol)?
Question 6) Any tips on sleeping efore the surgery?

Thanks for the help!
