I've been wanting to have my nose done since being in high school as I was name called 'big nose' a lot. It has made me self conscious ever since! Don't really like going to public places because I think people are looking at my nose. My op is 27th April I'm so scared but can't wait to feel nice about myself for the first time. I'm having open rhinoplasty to have the hump shaved down and getting the tip slightly smaller.

So today's the day I've not had a wink of sleep...

So today's the day I've not had a wink of sleep all night been feeling very sick and nervous! Now at the hospital be going down for my op at 11 arghh excited :D thanks for all your advice I very much appreciate it!

Finally had my op after the dreaded wait for 3 hours in hospital. Which dragged and got me even more nervous! I'm not in much pain at all just a dull ache also have no packing so can breath through my nose but been advised not to. It isn't half as bad as I thought it would have been so glad I had it done and can see a change already with the cast on... EXCITED for Friday when I have my cast off.

Been 3 days since my op my son fell and caught himself by grabbing my face, yes as you can believe it did hurt brought years to my eyes. So any of you that have children stay well clear from them once you've had your op! I'm not in any pain just feels like I have a lot of pressure on my nose under the cast which isn't very comfortable.

Day 5 post op - I had a very restless sleep last night couldn't get comfy as I've been sleeping on 5 pillows to keep my head up and swelling down :) have no bruises hardly as I was advised to buy arnica tablet form its a herb to help keep bruising minimal suppose just depends on the person. It's helped a lot for me so definitely would recommend it!! I'm so so nervous about getting my cast off tomorrow, I'm worried if its gonna hurt. Does it hurt when the stitches are removed?? Il post pictures of my new nose tomorrow :D hope your all well! :)

Had my cast off today which I kind of took off myself whilst in the shower, was too afraid if they hurt my nose!! So i stood uder the shower waiting for it to go soggy and pulled at it very slowly. Having the stitches out has to be the most pain I've felt through out the whole procedure brought tears to my eyes :( I'm not very pleased with how my nose looks ATM I think it looks too long and fat at the tip, obviously it's still swollen just hope it goes down ALOT!!

3 weeks 4 days post op!

It's been nearly a month now since I've had my op and I'm so glad I've had it done!!! The bridge is still slightly tender to touch and I have dry skin still which isn't very nice. I miss blowing my nose only another 2 weeks until I can.. Yayyy! Ahhaha.
