..chocolate milk, half boiled eggs, soup, blended porridge (yes, even my porridge had to be blended to a complete pulp, much like baby food), fruit juice, you get the idea.
Everything liquid la basically.
I was given 8-weeks worth of MC by the doctor. This 8-weeks was filled with weekly visits to the doctor for check-ups, and also to check on how my recovery was coming along.
In my previous post, I mentioned that I lost helluva weight, but I was not sure how much weight I've lost until TODAY! I've lost a grand total of 6-kilograms in the span of just 2-months. Not something to be proud of, it's very hard for me to gain weight but very easy to lose it. I've no idea how the hell I'm going to regain the weight I've lost.
Will probably take ALOT of time to do so.
The office is having a medical check-up thingy for all employees. The machine even had trouble calculating my total body fat! Error Error Error all the way.
0% Body Fat yo, lol
Anyway, back to my recovery. At around Week 5 or so, the metal braces were finally ready to come off! Boy was I excited. The thought of being able to eat solids again was too much to handle. (I was CRAVING for SOOOOOOO MANY types of food, I was almost going insane)
But, to my dismay.. IT HURT LIKE HELL whenever I tried to chew something. Even something as soft as a PLUM, made me feel like my jaw was about to crack wide open again.
So yeah..went back to porridge, albeit non-blended this time. And more juice and milk and soups.
Then I worked my way to chewing on noodles, fish, certain vegetables, minced chicken, burger, etc.
Going up what I call the "solid scale".
Seems like I can pretty much chew anything (or most of my favorite foods) by now.
Biggest accomplishment? I would have to say grilled crabs.
The braces once they were taken off.
So yeah, life was pretty much shit for that 2-month period. But I'm back on my feet now, recovering slowly but surely. The next step from here on would be to get cosmetic dental work done.
I broke/chipped a total of 7 tooth (from the impact of the fall). Yes..SEVEN. 6 of which needs to be crowned and 1 has to be extracted. After that, I'm going to have to wear braces. But NOT the ones above...the normal "make my teeth all nice & straight" type of braces.
All this is going to cost a pretty penny, but we'll see how it goes.
