I tripped outside the house on Monday morning and hit my head on a terracotta plant pot, which came of significantly better than me.
I bled copiously from a small cut on the chin, applied arnica everywhere else and thought I'd come off lightly.
Yesterday, I knew it was an a and E job and yes, I have fractured my jaw.
I spoke to the surgeon this morning and have 3 options, all with risks and drawbacks.
This is set against hub's cancer treatments and me being the sole driver.
1. Do nothing, let it heal and live with my different 'bite'
2. Have my jaw wired for 6 weeks, while being fed through a syringe
3. Have plates inserted.
I have discounted option 2.
I am seeing them on Tuesday to go through the options and ask questions, but what questions to ask? I have a short window to make my choice.
Has anyone had any advice for me please?
