I Am Pod 5 S/p Revision Rhinoplasty, and Today I Took a Golden Retriever Tail to the Face?

It did not hurt, and the splint is still in place. It just scared me, and the thought of having to do this all over again has me freaked out. Is the splint strong enough to protect me from my damn dog's tail?

        I think you are safe. No worries.  In the absence of pain, this would be the extremely unlikely. Happy holidays.

Splint will protect nose after rhinoplasty.

Of course there is no way to be sure, but it is very unlikely that your dog's tail did any serious damage.
