10 years after jaw surgery still issues

I has surgery on my jaw broken in several places by domestic violence . Eye socket and nose as well I think. 10 years later and the right side of my face is still swollen and I can't feel my lower teeth, gums, etc. It's hard to breathe especially at night and I'm stuffy all the time. Migraines are almost daily. How can I get fixed and healthy with insurance covering it? I'm desperate!!

Procedure: General Reconstruction
Location: Montclair, VA

The only thing that anybody could tell you is to visit an oral surgeon or plastic surgeon specializing in maxillofacial surgery for a complete history, physical exam, x rays and other studies. Without that information it is impossible to tell you anything.
