3 1/2 Months Post Op - Still Some Bump-ish Swelling? (photo)
I thought my post at 2 1/2 Months PO would be my last, but I guess not. Anyways, I said before that my nose looked great when I press down on it. But otherwise, it's pretty much constantly 'swollen' and looks kind of bumpy. The only part that feels firm and like BONE is the very top. The rest feels really spongy when I press in. That makes me think that it'll get better, but I'm just so scared that it won't :\ Especially at 3 1/2 months. Is it possible for the swelling to go down at this point?
