Getting My Face Back

by Tom on October 1st, 2009

My face has been getting better every day. I think the prednisone reducing the inflammation really helped things get started.¬†I can wiggle my eyebrows again, flare my nostrils most of the way, and the right side of my mouth is now participating in smiles again!¬†Drinking from a cup is once again not just for movie stars. A few more days of this sort of improvement and I’ll be able to whistle and blow proper kisses.

Every once and awhile I feel pain near my ear similar to what I felt before the palsy started up, and I start to worry. So far, no regression.

I’m on the good part of the chemotherapy recovery period now, so other than being low on energy I feel great!
