6:34 PM.
My first update.. :)
So I got the procedure this morning.. 7 am.. left about 945... after everything.. I was very nervous with the anestheisa ( all the needles etc.)) but everything was fine.. Took me into the room.. next thing.. i am awake .. and in recovery room :)
Laid down for a little.. try to get in wheel chair 2ce from bed.. but felt a little nauseas.. so laid down till the nausea went away.. 11:ish.. I got in my moms car .. and we were on our way home!!
I felt some pressure but not to bad.. got home laid down.. i took just a 800 iboprofun.. (rather have not taken the percocets).. and i feel fine.. Its 640 pm.. just have been sleeping all day..
I feel ok.. and not to bad at all!! with the blood clotting up underneath and getting dry feels a little weird.. but i am ju st trying to breathe out of my mouth :D.. and not think of that..
Soon i will do the q tips and cleaning underneath!! Anyways i already see a profile with the tape on my nose.. and it looks so good.. no more crookedness!! seems to look straight and a nice profile. on both sides! im haappyy about that.. but lots of healing to go.. im not to swollen either.. YET.. not sure if tomororw i will get more.. ! anyways super happy its over!! YAY!.. And that is DAY 1.. not bad at all..

Its friday.. so day 5.. got the surgery on monday.. I am surprised how easy this was for me.. totally went in thinking it was going to be alot of down time.. etc and painful. I was wrong.. but its day 5 .. i thought maybe i would get in some more pain through out the week.. but definetly kept wearing down.. which is good.. I am still taking it easy.. and relaxing home.. did some driving yesrerday and i went out in public :) haha people were staring.. Oh well! but it felt good to get out of the house.. Though my face is still bruised ... eh! Its soo annoying though when i feel an itch coming in on my nose and i cant itch it.. that is grrrr... !! But that is basically it.. and i am clogged in my nose.. which is normal.. But the swelling aroudn the tip of my nose has definetly went down.. Jusst so anxious to see without the cast :).. i know lots more healing time though.. ! Love this site :) so awesome!!thanks everyone for sharing there stories to... made me feeel way better!

Got my cast off this morning.. was very easy.. he just took off the splint ...he said its still a little swollen, and still will go down.. of coarse.. but i love the profile.. and the overall look.really happy!!! :D Dr kane was great!!!

So its day 3 since the nose cast (splint) whatever... has been off!! Definetly very very happy with results so far.. i see each day how it slowly is getting more defined around the sides.... Still have a little bruise under my right eye.. but thats it as far as swelling... Cant wait for it to go away already! I am so happy that now my old bad side.. is a good side now.. Im being very careful with my nose.. sometimes when i sleep and turn over on a side.. feel alot of pressure.. i worked out for the first time yesterday lightly.. just some light cardio.. happy to get back in the gym.. and my nose felt fine :) cant be moving my head to much though! Anyways.. thats about it for now... i will post some new pictures of progress :)

So its been about a month, since the surgery! And...

So its been about a month, since the surgery! And i must say im very happy so far with my results.. there is still way more healing to go but so far i love it :) I just had my 3 week post up Monday with my dr. he said everything is healing fine.. and it looks great.. And my tip is definetly still swollen, which takes about 6 m to a year.. as we all know :) I seem to be fine, i am back in my gym routine.. although still not running fast .. etc or anything like that. . . but doesnt hurt at all.. some pressure with random things.. or movement (sleeping etc.. ) thats it ! posted some pics.. man i wish i did this years ago.. lol!

Did your doctor break your nose and reset it? I'll be going for revision soon. My nose looks similar to your old nose. My e.n.t left the crookeness in the nose and did graft work around the nose. Why? I do not know. I should of had a second opinion. I should of followed my heart. It knew best. I did not feel right about that whole thing. I had the most awful experience. I will be going to see a plastic surgeon soon.

You look Great! Thank God for such a thing as nose surgery and that through nose surgery we can improve our looks. Your nose will only continue to look better. Are you sleeping on a certain type of pillow? Just our of curiosity did you have graft work done? Again, your results are remarkable.
