2 days post op Rhinoplasty, did I move the cast on my nose ? (photos)

I got my nose done yesterday so it's day 2 for me and today I slept and I think I turned my head too much and accidentally had my nose on the pillow. There is no major pain but once in a while a sharp stinging pain right where the stitches are. Is It possible that I moved the cast on my nose ? I never head surgery before so it's freaking me out a bit. Thanks in advance

Post-Op Rhomoplasty Cast

After looking at you photos, it looks as if your nose is straight and your nose cast is intact. I know that's it's difficult to sleep in one position, but your results will be well worth it.
If you still have any questions or concerns, I would contact your plastic surgeon. Best wishes to you and I think you will be very pleased with your results.
