Emily - you are correct - your questions are varied. You'd probably do better posting in the June surgery, or spring surgery threads where people are experiencing what you are in real time. Also - all of these questions need to be addressed to your particular doctor since they are all different. That said:
1) swelling can take a number of weeks to go down. Talk to your doc about the progression if you are worried.
2) Some docs advise massage, others say never massage. Your doc will need to give you the specific instructions that he prefers. You will be 'misshapen' through out the process, but it will change with every fill.
3) Some people get SOME sensation back eventually. From what I've read, most do not. We just get used to the new normal since there are not other options.
