hi i was born in 1972 with a cleft palate. at that time plastic surgery wasn't as advanced as it is now, so my cleft isn't an example of what can be done. but i'm perfectly happy with my results. don't get me wrong i still have days where i consider having another reconstruction on my left nasal passage, but then i reconsider as it doesn't really bother me that much. and at 35 i'm used to it. i've joined this group as hopefully i can be of some assistance to anyone who might need it. i know when i was born my mam would have been grateful to talk to someone who had a cleft palate, and i know as i got older i would have appreciated having someone to talk to who knew what it was like. mine wasn't genetic so nobody in the family had come across it before. so i'm here if anyone wants a chat. cally x

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
