Went to the doc today for the post-op checkup, and he said all is in order.
I still have a bit of pain when I ride my bike and lift heavy things, so I asked him about it — and he said it was to be expected because he broke the bone near the bridge of my nose on the inside. I sat there like — er, um, — eeks! — you broke my nose on the inside? The outside is still my same old lumpy bumpy nosy. Jason said that he told me that he was going to do that, but I must have put up a mental block about it because I had no memory of it all at. Doc said it would be 3 more weeks until that healed up completely.
Anyhow, if ever you find out that you need sinus surgery — go for it! It is so worth it. I can breathe so much better, the pain I had before is gone, my sense of smell is back, I sleep like a log at night — just go do it! And if you are in Austin, check out this doc — he is the best. He just started his own practice so his phone number has changed — drop me a line and I can send it to you if you like.
