Luckily my family and friends were so supportive of me and helped me out alot. Honestly I just remember getting the anesthesia being rolled into the OR and then waking up. The first day was the worst just because of the packing thats in there but it wasn't unbearable I had little pain it was just uncomfortable.
Next day packing was out yay! But they still didnt want me breathing out of my nose alot. My overall week of bandages and recovery was not that bad, the worst part was it was just so boring sitting there! I am a very active sporty person and it was driving me crazy not being able to do anything. Then YAY a week later got my bandages off!
It was still very veryyy swollen and tender but i could see a change. It was a little weird going out after because I didnt want to tell alot of people because I thought it was embarassing, but I got over that and was very open about it telling everyone who asked me how it was and I'm happy so they are happy for me! Anyways alot of the swelling is down now just have alot in the tip still and a slight bump that they said will go away soon! So heres some pics!Updated on 24 Aug 2011:So it's been a little more then 6 weeks since my surgery and everything is going great! I had a check up the other day my doc said everything is looking good and I can go back to my normal routines (playing volleyball, working out, wearing sunglasses again) so YAY thats good news! Still swelling in the tip but its not noticeable.. so yup I'm very happy with how all this is going, i'll post some pics! :)Updated on 21 Sep 2011:Everything is going great!!
