Mouth Can Not Open All Postoperatively?
afternoon … I finished finished neurosurgical surgery on the head … the healing process went well … happen..
Hello Thorik, thank you for asking.
Unfortunately you do not include a description, what type of operation you received and when the operation took place. Nerve disorders, both peripheral and central nerves, will cause different symptoms, depending on the location of the affected nerve. Symptoms can be sensory symptoms or motor symptoms. Sensory symptoms, for example, tingling or numbness in the skin, or sensory dysfunction. Motor symptoms such as paralysis and weakness of the limbs.
The severity of symptoms will depend on the type of disease you are experiencing. Likewise with the healing process. We do not know the type of your disease, your condition, and the type of surgery. Healing depends on all three. The more severe or extensive the nerve damage, the longer the healing process. It may take months or even years. In addition, healing may not occur 100%, if the condition before surgery is in severe degree.
Please consult with your treating doctor. The doctor who knows best how your condition is progressing now. Your doctor may need to do a series of tests to assess your motor and sensory function. Sometimes, doctors also recommend routine physiotherapy. Routine physiotherapy coupled with changes in diet and lifestyle, generally can improve residual symptoms, although it may not be 100% complete. You can train your facial muscles little by little at home. Do facial exercises regularly. Do not force open your mouth too wide suddenly, do it slowly.
Thus my explanation, hopefully you are helped. Regards.
