MY STORY: Part 3
A month ago my surgeon told me that I would likely need TWO additional surgeries and bone grafting from my hip due to infection in the fracture site of my lower left mandible.
Completely devastated at the idea of undergoing MORE Surgeries I told him to give me ONE month to MAGIC my way out of them. I just NEEDED more time to heal. He assured ME I would in fact need at LEAST one more to replace my plate with a reconstruction plate (a larger and stronger plate). I assured HIM that I needed MORE TIME and for him to BELIEVE that I could heal without surgery.
I started going to weekly Acupuncture and RMT carving out time in my busy life to take Care of myself. After a week of tests at Vernon hospital being poked and prodded with Nuclear medicine we ruled out infection in the bone! One surgery down, no bone grafting!! And with one to go, I was determined to use whatever measurements I could to heal without surgery.
My mom had done some research into the use of a “bone stimulator” to aid in healing fractures with positive results. My surgeon hadn’t heard much about them but said it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try. For 20 min every day I have been using this device that pulses ultrasound waves into the fracture site to break up scar tissue and promote bone fusion. Along with this new medical device I started meditating to visualize my jaw healed and strong. I did self reiki, I sketched pictures of skull bones with reiki symbols on the jaw, I learned how bones grow and heal and put all my thoughts and energy into healing.
The week before the 20th, surgical booking Contacted me to start the pre-surgical process. I told them I will fill out what I need but I won’t be needing surgery as I was convinced I was healing. 5 days before my surgery date I went in to see my surgeon to assess my progress if any at that. He was SPEECHLESS! Not only was my swelling down but the x-ray showed bone fusion!! I was healing!! I am healing! For the first time EVER I left his office not in tears but with a smile on my face.
It’s been almost 6 months since I went in for a routine wisdom tooth extraction and ended up with a broken jaw. And finally, some progress. No one should have to go through what I have endured and if there’s one thing that I have learned from all of this is that you HAVE to advocate for your own health. You have to take your well-being into your own hands. Your body and mind are so smart and CAPABLE! Medical treatments go so far but healing goes beyond science it goes beyond surgery and medications. Health and well-being should not be put SOLELY into medical professionals. Do NOT give up your power so easily. We ARE all capable, our bodies are wise, listen to what they are telling you and DO NOT ignore the signs! Or life with rock you and shake you Until you listen!
