    I have had three surgeries in three years of this journey. Each recovery was much different from the other. I'm curious how long it took everyone until they could bend without interfering with the healing process.

    I bent over right away but my having 6 stitches right now it's very uncomfortable and I try not to do it often. It's only been 5 days since surgery. I did too much yesterday and I'm pretty swollen and my skin felt a little hot but I iced it for a few hrs. And it seems fine now. You have to be careful on pain meds. The pain actually tells you what is to much sometimes.

    Bend how far? I could bend a tiny bit immediately after my cleft lift, but it took just over a week before I could bend more or less normally. I spent the first week learning how to pick things up with my toes.
