Paresthesia update #2

There is (I think) some positive development. At least I have the impression that I regained some sensation in the gum area. I went to see the surgeon yesterday. He checked the degree of numbness of the chin, and was "pleased" to note that I do feel touch. He was quite nonchalant about the whole thing, reassuring me that it will go away in no time. I certainly hope so!

Not leaving it completely to chance, I did purchase two new types of vitamins that apparently are used for treating nerve damage:
a) benfotiamine - a fat soluble form of B1 and
b) methylcobalamin - a B12 coenzyme
