Day 8 after soft reline.

  • Question
  • Updated 3 days ago
It's been 8 days since my first soft reline. It's been so nice without adhesive, but alas, I think the time is up. Not really holding up without it today. Even a drink of water cause it to drop. I could see it coming yesterday.
Question is, how much damage will I do to the liner if I use powder adhesive this soon after? Not that I really have a choice.

Hey there... I used powder the next day with no visible change to the reline. Do whatcha gotta do.....
I understand your situation with getting in to see your dentist is a bit challenging; but I don't think it will cause any problems.

Thanks. I was a bit concerned because, as you said, it’s difficult for me to get an appointment. Since the last one involved refund threats, they actually scheduled me back today. That will let me show them what I’m working with right now. I can still wear my top without adhesive, as long as I have no food or drink. That’s pretty hard to do though.

Thanks. A little powder goes a long way. Feeling great today, despite all the rain we have had.

At the dentist now. My appt is in 5 minutes. Let’s hope they are on schedule this time. Last time was less than stellar, at almost an hour behind. In the lobby with ten others. This place isn’t that big and seating is, tight...

Awee. Yea I don't have much luck either with things. Hey! I've never really recommended this on here or at work but I wonder if fall off the bone ribs would be edible? One would just have to be very careful not to bite the bone and if they don't fall off easy what about cutting the meat off or using a fork to tear it off? Hmmmm.

Ah, ribs are no problem. The only thing I haven’t really tried is steak. I was kinda worried about sushi (you are supposed to eat in one bite). US sushi is considerably larger than in Japan. Guess I’ve got a big mouth, as i can eat a whole piece without issue.

With enough adhesive I could eat a cow I’m sure.

Haha! You so funny. :p I tried sushi twice so far. My hubby made me try it as I enjoy the rolls. It was pretty good but I still prefer the rolls. I've tried to use the sticks but just can't get it. Maybe it's the Italian in me. Lmao! I don't care I eat the rolls with a fork and I've only experienced eating them in restaurants here so the fork doesn't last as the rolls are big and I use my hands. I don't Kerr!!!! I want to eat! Lol. Oh yea no....no steak yet unless you want to try small bites? We never recommend to try eating that right away. Maybe you're ready for the steak task?? Small pieces and take your time bud. Not sure what time it is there but you may do what you did last time and drop the computer and run out to grab some. Lmao. :)

Have no shame.
On my last trip to Japan my partner had to ask for a fork. All they had were Snoopy baby forks. He ate proudly and shamelessly. With the Snoopy fork.

New reline is already loose! I guess that means my healing is still going well. I could use a little powder on top, but honestly I can’t get it out of my head that I’ll ruin the liner with it.

A little powder is still working great. I can see any deterioration of the liner either. I’m a happy guy

Still doing pretty well. I have a respiratory infection, so I did very little over the weekend.
I still haven’t gained my weight back. Actually I’m still losing. So far I am down from 160 lbs on surgery day to 133 lbs. Not sure what’s up with that. Just done feel healthy.
On a good note, I’m not even thinking about my bottom partial anymore. No more aware of it than I am of my socks.
The upper is doing well too, but I’m very aware of it. Every day I feel like it’s loose, then at night I need a crowbar to get it out lol! Not sure why I’m so sensitive to it. Maybe I need some hypnosis??

Hey Charlie, glad to hear the bottoms are good, I can so relate to the upper challenge, tomorrow I'm going for a reline, hopefully my last, will make an appointment for my permanent process...I'm sooo done with these immediates.
Your continued weight loss seems somewhat concerning. I wish I had the same problem though, I've only lost a total of 25..lol

Charlie, I am very sorry to hear that about your mother, it may be a slow go healing. One word of advice...take care of yourself!???. You will be of no use to anyone if you don't. You must be strong so make sure to eat and rest anytime you can. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Thank you. It’s been a busy week. The hospital is roughly an hour from my home, so there has been a lot of driving and not much time at home

Yes your right about that...but being there and supportive can be exhausting as well. I was taking care if my mother in law for about 2 years first with kidney/bladder cancer and then she had a fall and fractured her hip. So i have complete empathy for your situation. (My circumstances I'm sure are different than yours, we lived with her).
