Like many of us with residual BP when possible I prefer to wear my sunglasses when possible
I am really happy to have to have as much of my face back as I do,they said I would never recover.I still try not to smile too big when taking photos, because when I do my face is still a little cock-eyed.
The doctors wanted to put a gold weight into my eye-lid, but I thought - they just don't know me very well and I did not accept their opinion. I did go through a lot of acupuncture with electrical stimulation, PT with electrical stimulation and macro electrical stimulation. I have also been seeing an osteopath (something I never believed in before) but to my shock when he started to work on my face - I had NO idea of how much pain I was still in, until he touched certain areas of my jaw and neck. It would be similar to someone having a tight muscle in your back and having someone massaging it to work it out. Now it feels similar to the other side but it still pulls in areas of my neck and eye.
I haven't had any therapy for about 2 months and nothing seems to be improving any longer. I might try a little more but I know that I have pushed my recovery to the limit. They say your going to get as much back by about 2 1/2 years but I am here to tell you my recovery has been ongoing until now slow but steady, so don't believe everything they say but you must take control and get some sort of electrical stimulation.
