1 year and 1 month since surgery! (Open Rhino) pretty satisfied :-) what u think?

So far so good :-) had open rhinoplasty today at 2pm local time, its 9pm now. Been bothered with my nose since i was about 12 years old, espesially in profile while smiling. So what i and the doctor agreed on was to remove the bump, lift the tip a little bit and cut the muscles that makes my nose point down when i smile. As i can see i dont have any bruises yet, and my eyes were only a little bit swollen right after surgery. When is it normal to get the black eyes? I also have tampons in my nose thats supposed to be removed in a week, the same time as the cast. I cant wait, it cant be worse than before anyways ;-) btw: i'm 26

2 days since surgery! Have gotten a little bit swollen on the left eye, and a hint of blueish, but nothing to complaint about. Slept like 12 hours this night, that might be the reason why i feel a little more puffed than the other days. Still no pain at all, and i think the nostrils looks great already! Can i go for a walk in fresh air? Its kind of cold outside..

Sorry for alot of posts in short time.. But is it something wrong when my upper lip does NOT feel stiff? I can eat and laugh without pain.. I dont have a sore throat neither. Anyone else? Havent taken any vitamins or arnica or anything!

So., today is sunday, i had my surgery on thursday. So its day 3 post op. Still no pain at all, just a little bit swollen between the eyes. Started the day with walking 30min with my dog, fresh air feels nice. Its getting really boring lying on the sofa, usually i like being lazy, but not when i have to :-) thinking about starting a blog or something. Or else i could just play the sims, pretend that it is my life these long days. Not looking forward to removing the cast and tampons. Guessing the tampons will be very stuck after 7 days :-S

2 days since cast removal. Having some concearns about the shape of the bridge., i still see a bump at the top. I know that the tip will raise a bit when the swelling comes down.. But i actually thinks the nose looks more downwarded than before.. I like it better than my old nose from every other angle thou. Help me? Posted some pictures. Going to see the doctor in 3 months.

Also; any tips on removing the "chunks" of blood thats sticking to the inside in my nostrils? Its painful to pluck it. I have tried saltywater.. Also tried to cut it off with a scissors and a pinset, but i doesnt move and blood starts running..
