Default User Photo


I am 2 weeks and 1 day post op. Today I was trying to take my water bottle out of my purse and while pulling it out hit my nose from under... It hurt a lot but there was no bleeding. It looks the same as far I can tell. I called my surgeon and he said nothing can be done now wwe have to wait some weeks to see what it looks like. What are the chances I damaged it?

Chances are you have cause no injury from the movement you describe. Ice it and wait several days then have your PS look at it to reassure you. (more)
