As an update, at 4.5 weeks the OAC started to heal quite a bit.
As of 5 weeks, it is mostly healed. It has been (what feels to me) a long road with this seemingly minor complication.

I'm still dealing with the nerve issues, but those are progressing, albeit slowly, as well. I'm guessing it maybe 2-3 months before those issues completely resolve. I guess I am optimistically hoping that those will, indeed, heal 100%.

Today seems better. However, I'm concerned that the OAC isn't going to spontaneously heal, as I would have expected that to happen by now.

I also think I'm dealing with a bit of nerve damage that complicates determining if I'm getting sinus pressure or nerve pain (dull ache in 1st and 2nd molars, slight numbness/tingling on that side of my tongue).

Anyway, what do you think - should I be concerned that the OAC is evidently still open?
