Sleeping on my Nose 15 Days Post Op., Will It Cause Long Term Damage?

This morning I woke up and realized that my face was buried in my pillow and that I had been applying pressure to my nose all night. It had some discomfort afterwards, what seemed to be swelling, and I was wondering if this could have caused any long term damage. Thanks in advance.

Hopefully you didn't do any damage but check in with your surgeon. You probably would have felt more pain if you did anything major.
