not sure

not sure what to do so confused and worried about picking the right surgeon i dont know whether to find another clinic closer to home or what to do ,,but its just so pricey in ireland !!!!! help people:)!!!!!
And trust me you wouldn't get the kind of treatment and aftercare from bupa or the hospital group that revitalise give.

its the amount of travelling thats putting me off now i dont know what to do:(

Oh I thought it was great at least you get to see all of Europe down there I thought it went quite quick. But at the end of the day its what you feel comfortable with everyone is very different I mist admit I nearly backed out a few times but im glad I didn't. You do whats best for you its your choice to make and anything like this takes a little more courage than usual its normal to feel edgy and apprehensive. Were here to support you whatever you choose.xx

2wks

Eeeeeeeeeeksssssss two wks and il be getting my new nose feeling a mix of emotions from nervous to excited feel bit sick.. il be put to sleep so thats what is freaking me out the thoughts of it cant wait til its just done n dusted ..... excited woooooo
The thought of being put to sleep freaked me out too. Rhinoplasty was my first surgery ever so I know how you feel. It's really not that bad. My anesthesiologist saw how nervous I was and actually gave me medicine in my IV to calm me down. It helped a LOT and it might be worth asking about!

Thank you i will ask its only thing im nervous about its freaking me out that i feel like backing out of surgery but i know il regret it :(

1wk to go!!!!

The final count down is on and all i can think of is being put to sleep im terrified really putting me off !! Iv a young daughter so id never forgive mysrlf if she was left motherless because of me and my obsession with my nose !!!lol i know its extreme but its all i can think of! Other then that though im excited! Cant wait for it.

4 Days to Op

And iv woke up with a sore throat n ear ??? I read somewhere in the emails from my surgeon that if youv any ear infections or any infections u have to post pon your op ??i really hope not :( has this happened anyone else .. just my luck .
ring them and inform them about it ASAP
Reply
Weird i replied to u earlier i just said my pains gone now just woke up with a throbbing ear tgough seems to be gone i couldn get an appointment with my gp either so il go get some ear drops to be on safe side... is it dangerous ??
Reply
I think you could be okay but I really think you should contact them, it's not dangerous but they might have to postpone your operation if there's an infection.

2more sleeps

And i will be in in belguim wooooo getting excited now hope all goes to plan not really nervous about the op hopefully il get results i want! thinking positive i will keep you all up todate with pictures and stuff as soon as im there :)

Anyway i stil have a little bump that gives a tiny hump illsuion also my tip is looking long i no its stil swollen though but dont think itl change too much! I do love my new nose im so much more confident in myself, however, Im going to get the revision to remove bump and make it a lil smaller :) its annoying the thoughts of goin threw all that again but if it means il be happy in the end itl br worth it :)
Hi there, your new nose looks.beautiful. who did the surgery in Belgium? Did you go with Dr oelbrand like me? X

3 and half months

hey quick update love love my nose thinking of revision for the small bump i have although today im loving my nose i go through my stages of wanting it redone and then not lol!!!!! but its great i put sunglasses on n they kept sliding down my nose were usually held up by a big disgusting bump!!!! the tip is stil a bit sore to touch but its healing good and it looks sooo natural no one has noticed they know somethings different but they just think its my hair or something ! i really do think if you have an issue with your nose just go for it you have one life you might as well do what will make you happy i would definitely say it was worth it and dr oelbrandt is great and always has time to get back to me if iv a question!!!!

3 and a half months
