I underwent jaw surgery and woke up with my jaws wired shut. This book is something that I wish had been available to me after my surgery. I was unable to find very little information about what to expect after my surgery. Especially hard to find was information about what it would be like living on a special food diet. So I had to “play it by ear.” There are so many things that would have been helpful to me had I known them before-hand. I want to prevent this from happening to you. This book has been written to help you on your journey after your jaw surgery. It is easy-to read and straight-forward, but it is packed with lots of practical and helpful information. You do not need to learn everything the hard way, as I did. Being prepared really is half the battle.

About the Author:

The author wrote this book based on what she learned from her own personal experience after undergoing jaw surgery. Jayne lives in Minnesota with her husband, three children and a Siberian Husky named Ella. She will soon be releasing her first children's picture book entitled "Doggy's Busy Day." The book will be the first in a series. Jayne has also written several blogs. Her current blog can be found at: www.livingwithoutsomeoneyoulove.org

Review:

"This book is written in a format that is easy to read by someone who has been there. I ordered this book because of my TMJ and surgery options. It helped me get organized with what I need to get before surgery so I can be better prepared. It's 75 pages and I read it in one sitting." "While the subject may only appeal to a select few, the author has done a masterful job of explaining her experience after jaw surgery. The topics run the gamut from an explanation of the surgery (including pictures of the surgical screws when removed) to the utensils required to maintain health and dental cleanliness. Ms. Flaagan even includes recipes for those who must undergo a "liquid" diet. Incidentally, who knew there is so many definitions of "liquid."" "Hopefully, I will never undergo a similar experience. Never-the-less, I am glad to have read this informative and well-written explanation of the process, her experience, and the pitfalls. Every doctor doing jaw surgery should make this book available to their patients." "A couple of years ago my husband was in a really back accident and had a broken leg, and his jaw was wired shut because of a mandible fracture. It was a really tough time, and there wasn't much help or guidance. I can honestly say, as someone who's witnessed a loved one who's been affected by this I can truly say that this book is amazingly helpful and full of my tips, tricks and reminders for anyone who has to have this type of surgery. The book is also really helpful for anyone considering a liquid diet but in search of recipes! All around great read!"
