During the rhinoplasty procedure, my nose was re-broken, a columella strut inserted, and cartilage added to nasal tip. 2 days ago (6.5 weeks post-rhino) I drove ~7 hours (with 2 brief stops) on roads with many,many potholes, & large stretches of stripped &uneven pavement. About 20 min. of trip was on an dirt road. In short: A very bumpy 7.4 hour ride. My car is a compact with bad shocks. Is this something I should be concerned about? Can I repeat the trip without worry? Please advise. Thank you.
