I had this done about a week ago and man is it painful. My pain medication(percet) knocks me out, so I either live with bad pain or sleep on the Meds.
This was my first time going under the knife and I really regret it so far. I have not been able to work or do much of anything, my nose drips a
blood/snot mix, the slightest bump causes the worse pain, and the pain medicine has messed up my sleep paterns severely.
The surgeon was quick in deciding on the operation and before I knew it I was getting prepped for surgery. Why is it that doctors are so quick to put
someone under the knife and dont fill you in on the lengthy and painful recovery?
Also I need a mask to protect my nose when I go surfing, like the ones NBA players wear when they suffer broken noses(Richard Hamilton wore one in
this year's finals) and would really appreciate anybody who can direct me to somewhere in cyber space that I could possibly find one.
