Morning of Day 6:
Today i woke up laying with head tilted to the right and some pain in my ear after falling back asleep the pain in my ear was gone but I had a lot of pain and burning in my nose so I just took another half painkiller and I'm feeling good now :)
I leave to Dallas today so I can get my cast off tomorrow, very happy !!
As for today my nose is quite itchy! I touched it earlier as a reflex but no biggie
Most of bruising has gone from my face only purple remains on my eye lids which is cool with me because it makes me look like I have makeup on :p
Swelling is very slowly subsiding as well I still have fullness in my cheeks and jaw and only slight fullness on my eye lids and between my eyes. As for my nose that's a whole other world haha my nose is very very swollen and oily
Naturally I have oily thick skin so my surgeon prepared me to have a longer than usual healing process. He let me know to be patient with the swelling as it will take be prolonged by my skin conditions. Bummer but oh well I'm not an impatient person I should deal just fine
The only thing that does get on my nerves a bit is my nose feeling soo oily under my tape and cast I just want to wash it or wipe it plus there's 6 day old dried blood under the tape on the tip of my nose so I'm eager to get that cleaned off as well
I've been cleaning my nose just about once a day because there has been no excess blood build up and when I clean it when it isn't necessary it only makes it feel more raw
Something I should have done was called and asked what was going to be put in my nose after surgery because when I try to clean it I feel odd things in there. Of corse I feel the stitches and sutures but I also feel like little plates inside my nostrils like half tubes I suppose. I never called too ask but I suppose I should have
The doctor had previously sent me his plan however I know once he was j. The he had to end up braking the nose which we hadn't planned for soo it wouldn't have hurt to call and ask what els they did differently just to know
The tip of my nose is quite sensitive not tender but if I touch it I can feel an odd sort of dull sensation throughout the bridge of my nose
Still can't breath too much out of my nose only my right nostril a bit
I can't stop thinking of how great everyone was from my surgeon to the nurses to the anesthesiologist and everyone at the surgery center:) Such compassionate caring thorough patient sweet kind lovely people. They made the stressful situation at hand so much more pleasant. In particular I remember my recovery nurse at the surgery center, Susan, what a sweet woman. Just got me anything I needed and wanted to make sure I felt as comfortable as possible. Such a sweet heart ! Even the receptionists at the surgery center were kind people wishing me a safe and successful surgery
The event coordinator at Dr. Gunters office, Kim, was nice as well she had to deal with me when I was the most annoying which was the actual booking of the appointments, I really wanted to make sure I got my dates and it was such short notice but she took care of me. Oh and Jane at the Gunter center had to go on a wild goose chase for my lab work so thank you Jane for dealing with all that! I've met some really beautiful people through this experience:) all of y'all on this web site as well have made me feel so loved and special. We all have our stories, so similar but all unique, and when you post you make me feel like my story really matters:) so thank you all as well. Sincerely.
I'm going to get packing for my Dallas trip! Ill prolly update later on when I arrive.
My cast comes off tomorrow at 3:30 so be looking out for some fresh pics of the nosie I will post em up but keep in mind my nose will be extra swollen! Love you guys!
