2 jaw cysts removed

Last week my 12 year old had 2 cysts removed & 2 teeth pulled. The one on the left had grown up into his cheek & sinuses & cracked a bone. He is doing AWESOME! In the hospital he only had meds while in recovery! I did keep him on the tyl w/codine the 1st 24 hrs but hasnt needed anything else! He was swollen & tender but that was about it. Next week he has the drains removed & now we are hoping the 2 teeth come down as they are very high. Now we wait...

Thank you! He is doing great! We go back to the Mayo clinic to see his oral surgeon this week & hope to get a good report.

I also want to thank you for this blog. As you see I've just recently discovered it & it has been a WONDERFUL source for me. Living in Northern Minnesota, I defenitly felt 'alone'. Its nice to hear from others & how their kids are doing :)
