Knock to the Nose 3 Days Post-operative. What To Expect?
I had a rhinoplasty involving lots of tip work: defatting, grafting, lots of suturing. Also a bit of rasping of the bridge. 3 days post op (cast still on), my boyfriend knocked me on the nose, from below, right on the tip. It hurt like hell for 5 mins, then throbbed for 30 mins. But didn't bleed. However, because of the shock, I cried quite a lot, which blocked up my nose and made it weep (clear fluid). It didn't swell. What's the probability I have done any damage to the sutures or structure?
