Will I Ever Feel Normal After Septorhinoplasty?

Well I've been for a septorhinoplasty 2 weeks ago. I know it's still early but will I ever feel normal during the recovery period? I understand there will be swelling and bruising but right now I feel my nose is very very heavy as if a rock is sticking on my face all day. Will this ever go away? I just want to feel NORMAL again. But this heavyness feeling is giving me headaches and insomnia. I really couldn't go on like this. Is this normal?

    At 2 weeks, you are still early, and swelling will figure heavily into the results.  If you are having headaches and insomnia, you should see your surgeon for an exam and possibly reassurance.   Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
