Not OP, but he seems to have skedaddled. I had this surgery about a year ago. The numbness in my lower lips went away about 6 months in and the only feeling I've lost is sensation in my upper gums, which I don't super care about. Even that seems to be getting better. Nerves can take a VERY long time to heal. If there's no pain involved, she'll barely pay any attention to it. A bigger problem will be not noticing food stuck to her lips. When mine were still frozen, that was an issue. I could never feel anything there and I looked pretty gross eating. Tell her to keep updating her oral surgeon and ask whatever questions she needs to. Jaw surgery is expensive, she's earned those calls.

Looks like you're done, but on the off chance you come back....

Have there always been 'maned lionesses' like the ones mentioned in the article, or are they a relatively new phenomenon? http://www.wilderness-safaris.com/blog/posts/mmamoriri-the-maned-lioness

Do you agree with Dr. Hunters theory, that it happens in in utero? If not, what are your thoughts - and what triggers female lions to behave like males?

Thanks for doing this AMA!
