oral surgery appointment

Well yesterday I went to my OS to see about the callous under my tongue. He said that the tongue bleeds so much, and since it is not giving me any pain that I can wait until my surgery to get rid of it.
That was fine with me, I do not like having needles in my mouth.....I've never had one, but it does not sound pleasant.
So the doc took some measurements and looked at my profile, and in my mouth. He said that if my ortho cannot fix my mid line (its off by 3mm) then he will have to move the top jaw. So so far he said I still need double jaw surgery, and I am so close to being ready. TAKE THAT ORTHODONTIST!!!!!
He said, that I should be ready sometime this summer. So that's between May, and August.....so yeah......
So, now I just wait, and see.
Oh yeah, my o.s. wants me to ask my ortho to fix my mid line so i wont have to have upper surgery. But I don't think I will cause that's more time in braces and pushes out my surgery. So I don't think I will. I know it means double jaw surgery but I'm not too fond with my orthodontist. So the less time I see him the better.

Do you guys think I am making the right decision? Or no?

YES!!!!!!!!!

First off, I want to thank everyone who listened/read my venting blog. So I had my ortho appt a few days ago. He said that I wont be surgery ready in July. He said my top arch is ready but not my bottom arch.
I felt like crying! So he put figure 8's on my tops to keep my teeth in position and to let my roots settle in their new home. I also got a brand new power chain on the top. And a new arch wire.
I have the same arch wire on the bottom i got a power chain from pre molar to pre molar.
SO! I have been miserable for the past few days......until yesterday! I woke up and my bottom arch is so different! Every single one of my gaps are almost completely closed! (I'll have to post some pictures)
My ortho said that I would not be surgery ready because of my lower arch gaps....but they are closing!!!
HA! Stupid doc did not have any faith in my teeth and he made me feel depressed for nothing! I can't Wait to see the look on that cocky wife's face when I have my next appt May 6Th.
My next appt is so far out because I will be going on vacation for 11 days!!!! yay!!!!!!
But, yeah.....My gaps are closing and its only been in a few days! :)
