Day of treatment
I just had my septoplasty today with Dr. Phillip Solomon. The procedure lasted an hour (way less longer than I predicted). I woke up with a burning sensation in my nose and they quickly gave me something for it. It burned pretty badly. My gauze in on and wrapped on my nose, I am bleeding frequently, however I am icing too and on top of everything. They only gave me T3's which aren't helping much with pain but they do help with sleep. The pain is an 8 right now I would say, which is unfortunate. My mouth is constantly dry and I'm itchy everywhere for some reason.
The doctor wasn't very keen on doing anything to the tip of my nose, he said I have thick skin so he'll see what he can do when he gets in there. I can tell he's done some work to it because it's a little pointed and turned up.
I don't know what I'll be doing for glasses as it's difficult to see and I can't wear contacts :( I can't wait until a month from now when I can start seeing results!!!
Today I'm in a lot of pain, the swelling has worsened and the black eye is huge! Only on one side though. You can tell my nose is super swollen. I hate how there is so much dried up blood in my nose, and I don't like breathing out of my mouth constantly. I feel tired and weak, but now I actually find it more difficult to sleep :(
Cast is off
So my cast is off and honestly it doesn't look like Dr. Solomon did anything but shave the tiny dorsal hump I had. I'm so upset. I guess I just have to wait 2-3 months for the swelling to go down, but I'm pissed. He's always rushing me every time I go in. I wish I would've went else where.

2 months post
So I paid 7300 just for the doctor to remove a small dorsal hump on my nose. He didn't change the width or the tip. I've talked to three other girls afterwards who have had their nose done by dr Solomon and their noses are still large too. I cannot believe I trusted him to actually make any changes. A waste of time and money.
