Still Numb After All These (11) Months

So I'm just coming up on 11 months post surgery and (except for the numbness on my bottom lip and chin) life is pretty much back to normal. Next month I get my scan to find out whether I'm a candidate for implants. I have the feeling that the answer will most likely be not. My new dentist, a prosthodontics, thinks that the bone and tissue loss is to severe. So, we'll see. In the meantime, I have my new partial and even though it doesnt fit that well (which is why I switched dentists), I am chewing quite well these days -- so well in fact that I have gained back 10 pounds.
