Is my Nose Still Broken?
I got elbowed directly in the side of the nose at practice and heard my nose crack. I had bruising and a lot of swelling, so I had to wait five days before seeing the ENT. He performed a closed reduction and put a splint on it for a week. When he removed the splint it still wasn't straight. It has now been two weeks since the reduction and it is still painful and I have trouble breathing. I can feel my nose move when I open my mouth wide, and I can feel a crack\indent on the bridge of my nose.
