Dear dexterB, I would suggest speaking with your surgeon and discussing your concerns. The small gap between the bones on the bridge of the nose that you are discussing is typically from a hump removal and incomplete osteotomies where you have what we call an open bridge. It also sounds like the strut is to long and is causing you some complications. After an examination your surgeon can determine a proper diagnosis. As far as your memory loss and other concerns with your mental state you may want to seek medical help before moving forward with another surgery. Often times memory and other brain functions are offset by stress or lack of sleep. I would suggest seeking professional help which your surgeon may be able to help align for you. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
