Hello all, I'm writing on behalf of my wife, she asked me to post on this website as she can't do this right now. She's had rhinoplastic surgery yesterday Feb-24th. Now we are home. And she is bruised swollen and very uncomfortable. She is sleepy all day which I think is an effect of anesthesia. She actually regrets that she's done it because of what she's going thru right now. I'm supporting and not letting her break down. Her eyelids are dark purple and swollen to the point that she can barely open her eyes. This makes her feel very bad and actually worries me and her. It's been a day since she had surgery. Is this normal. I mean this kind of swellings so that she's having difficulty opening her eyes to see things??? Please someone who's gone thru this can respond to this post with their experiences. This may sound stupid but she is worried that she may stay like this for a long time and not several days.Of course it is weekend and doctor's office is closed and we can't reach them to consult.
