It has been a little over two weeks since my son's surgery and his healing is going well. The surgery pain has almost gone. The previous symptoms are getting better on the surgery side(less pain around TMJ area and swallow getting better). But the symptoms on the other side (ear pain and hyperacusis) have not changed. I hope he continues improving as time goes by. For the people who had surgery before, can you tell me when he can start his regular exercises, such as run on treadmill or elliptical?
The advice from doctors seems to vary a lot! But it is easy to overdo things and set back the healing if he does too much too soon.
