Its nice to see good and positive responses from each one of you on my earlier post. Thanks for that.
To give a quick background, my wife is diagonised with MEC @ right Hard palalte and under gone a surgery of removal of it from the palate. She had a flap which is taken from her arm to close the hole @ the tumor place.
Flap is doing good and its healthy but she is having some problems with the mouth opening now. Post operation Drs advised her to excersie with an tool (like Therabite) and with Tongue depressors. With that she can able to open her mouth 2 CM/20 MM max. But in all other time she cant able to open the mouth which is getting down to 0.5-1 CMs (5MM-10 MM) other times. Its more like TMJ syndrome.
If anyone have any inputs/methods to open mouth please share which will be very helpful for us.
Looking forward for your replies.
Thanks in advance,
