How to Massage Nose After Nasal Fracture Reduction
I had closed nasal fracture reduction, due to a broken nose, about 1 week ago. Today I finally got the cast off. To my surpise my doctor kept pushing my nose from one side, then he finally said that I had to put pressure on my nose whenever I remembered everyday due to some swelling on the left side. My question is: How exactly do I do this? Do I push or massage? and if so how? I asked him to show me how much pressure to put and when he did it was quite a large amount
