I had rhinoplasty 6 days ago. They broke my dorsal bone and filed it, as well as refined my tip. Just about 2 hours ago I was petting my cat and the little brat swatted me right on my nose! I wouldnt say it was a lot of impact, but just enough to make it a little sore, like the 2nd day of surgery. The pain has already gone away, and it did not swell. I still have a cast on, but could this have damaged my nose? How common is it for a postop nose to be permanently damaged? I have appt on Thursday.
